Avon girls three-peat at XC regional, boys place second

INDIANAPOLIS — With drizzling rain falling and cooler temperatures settling in overnight, Saturday’s Ben Davis cross country regional brought with it weather most runners hadn’t competed in so far this year. The conditions did not have an adverse affect on the county teams competing, as they brought home team and individual successes.

GIRLS

Avon pulled off a three-peat, taking its third regional title in as many years. The Orioles placed all of its runners in the top 10 and Malyka Abramson and Taylor Nicholson finished 1-2, respectively.

“Three-peating county, sectional and regional has been a great run,” Avon coach Brad Rosebrock said. “I think we’d not won a regional before our first. It’s a testament to the hard work put in by the athletes, coaching staff and our parents.”

Abramson finished in 18:02, while Nicholson broke Abramson’s freshman record time with her run of 18:16.

Kate Bernicke, Kelsie Mothersead, and Lauren Heeger made up the rest of Avon’s scoring, with Alissa Lustgarten and Fiona Kelly not far behind. Avon tallied 28 points on the day.

Zionsville (40) finished second, Pike (88) took third, Plainfield (117) was fourth and Brownsburg (135) advanced in fifth.

Samantha Woodford, who finished sixth, led the Quakers’ squad of Marina Pfeil, Sydney Simpson, Anne Krietenstein, Mady Haden, Saige Woodford and Hannah Snider.

Julia Popenfoose took 12th to lead the Bulldogs’ squad of Cassidy Brown, Alex Smock, Allison Hering, Brianna Channon, Mackenzie Vondersaar and Caroline Johnson.

Tri-West’s Carrie Chappell was the lone county runner to make it through without a team, finishing 30th with a time of 21:11.

“It’s indicative of the effort she’s put in all year, over the summer and in the workouts,” Tri-West coach Brian Powers said. “I’m just so happy and proud of her. “

BOYS

In a very tight competition, Zionsville (47) edged Avon (51) by four points to win its first cross country regional title in school history. Brownsburg (94) finished third, followed by Ritter, Ben Davis, Pike, Plainfield, Danville, Greencastle and Covenant Christian.
