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

(Continued)

Second place did not sit well with Avon coach Zach Toothman, but he believes the team can improve on the performance at next Saturday’s semi-state. It was also the highest Avon had ever finished in a regional.

“We knew it was going to be close and Zionsville is very, very good,” Toothman said. “Hopefully, we fair a bit better in a bigger field. We’re happy with our accomplishment.”

Presley Martin, Taylor Kleyn, Alec Scheerer, Jon Cramer and Will Anderson accounted for the Orioles’ scoring.

Brownsburg’s Mark Bond and Hari Sathyamurthy turned in impressive performances, finishing 1-2, respectively. Bond followed up his sectional championship performance with a regional victory. Sathyamurthy ran a personal best, shaving just over a minute off his best effort.

“Since I’ve been coaching we’ve only had a few guys win a regional title and we’ve never had anybody go 1-2,” Brownsburg coach Bret Neylon said. “We expected Mark to do very well today. I’ve always known Hari had this type of run in him and he did it in the biggest meet of the year.”

Bond, Sathyamurthy, Elijah Wagner, Seth Webster and Marcus Fierek made up the Bulldogs’ scoring.

With the newly-instituted rule of advancing the top 10 runners without a team, Danville benefited as senior Sam Bratton and freshman Daniel Gerber both made the cut.

“I’m happy for them as they came back from strong sectional performances with solid runs today,” Danville coach Pat McKenzie said. “It’s a great accomplishment for Daniel. Its also great to see Sam go so far as a senior.”

Also advancing was Plainfield’s Joel Thompson, who finished an impressive sixth with a time of 16:24, just 13 seconds off first place.
