Bethesda wins home invitational

BROWNSBURG — Finishing in 20 minutes, 2 seconds at Monday’s Bethesda Christian Cross Country Invitational, Patriot sophomore Wyatt Schreiner set a new course record by 14 seconds over previous record-holder Kale Kight.

Schreiner said he was happy the entire Bethesda team did well, yet sad that he pushed Kight off the board. He also appreciated the boost provided by Bethesda’s fans along the course.

“It just feels good having people here to help support you,” he said.

Bethesda coach Ben Biddle said this race was a good confidence-builder for Schreiner.

“Especially to run it alone, that was real good,” he said. “(It) shows that he can keep pushing himself.”

Bethesda won the event, which had some cancellations, as Fall Creek Academy did not participate and Wisdom Builders Home School brought only middle school runners. Traders Point Christian Academy fielded two runners in the boys’ race.

The girls’ and boys’ events started simultaneously, and Bethesda sophomore Hannah Joiner won the girls’ race, finishing in 25 minutes.

Joiner said when there are no girls from other schools against whom she can compete, she aspires to defeat her male Patriot counterparts: Stauffer, Caes and Josiah Biddle.

“It challenges you more to try to beat them than just to try to beat the girls,” she said. “When there are other girls, you can just run with them for a while then pass them and get the next girl. When it’s like all different guys, they keep the same pace and we’re just trying to keep the same pace the whole race. (It’s) just trying to push yourself to catch the next guy instead of the next girl.”

Bethesda is scheduled to host two more cross country meets this season, a dual with Faith Christian School of Lafayette Sept. 23 and the Homecoming Invitational four days later.

Biddle said having three home meets is helpful to the program’s development.

“In the past, we’ve only had maybe one or two,” he said. “We keep adding. I think it’s good as we try to get more teams to come, it’ll really help establish that we have a program.”
