Oriole runners finish second, fourth at BD


“I thought we ran well and that we got out very well together,” Avon boys’ coach Zach Toothman said. “It got really fast in the third (kilometer) and we closed well. We’ve been working on that all year.”

Alec Scheerer ran a 16:15 to lead Avon and finish in 14th. He was followed by teammates Jon Cramer (17th), Presley Martin (18th), Will Anderson (21st), Matt Everling (25th), Brandon Vu (28th) and Dawit Woldai (45th).

Paced by Joel Thompson’s 16th-place run of 16:17, Plainfield finished 12th as a team. Quakers behind Thompson were Justin Pelkey (59th), Zach Robinson (69th), Dominic Restivo (96th), Bayley Watson (97th), Colton Clay (98th) and Aaron Payne (103rd).

“I thought that they looked a little sharper this week,” Woodson said. “Joel got out better and had a good finish, and Justin ran pretty well. We have a lot of young kids running this year, and they’re learning.”

Tri-West’s boys’ team didn’t officially place because three of its seven runners went the wrong way on the course. Keiland Cooper (113th place), Ian Williams (115th), Josh Mauzy (117th) and Robby Stumph (124th) were the Bruins’ non-disqualified runners.

With schools like host Ben Davis and Carmel in the talented field, Tri-West was there to improve and get used to running with the best.

“Anytime we can run with schools like this, especially on our regional course, we’ll do it,” Powers said. “It’s a good opportunity for us, because you find out a lot about yourself.”
