Orioles sweep Plainfield XC Invite

PLAINFIELD — Of the 18 boys’ and 15 girls’ cross country teams that participated in the Plainfield Invite Saturday at Swinford Park, the Avon Orioles rose to the top of the ranks. Both Avon squads took first in the hokum karem style event.

BOYS

Among the six county squads in attendance, unranked Avon ran to victory and bested second-place Cathedral, ranked seventh, by seven points.

“We ran about as well as we could’ve right now,” Avon coach Zach Toothman said. “The course was a bit different and faster. The guys are pretty pumped about their times. We ran really well.”

First-year runner Taylor Kleyn and Presley Martin took second (29:21.32) in the overall tandem competition. Kleyn also plays soccer in the fall for the Orioles and has impressed Toothman in the early season.

Avon’s Jon Cramer and Will Anderson finished seventh (29:50.28) and Alec Scheerer and Matt Everling took 11th (30:18.15), giving the Orioles 20 points.

“Anderson and Kleyn really came out of their shells today,” Toothman said. “Will had a personal record in the mile. Kleyn has played two soccer games this week already.”

Brownsburg finished seventh overall and were led by Hari Sathyamurthy and Mark Bond. The pair placed 10th (30:12.37).

Justin Pelkey and Joel Thompson took 19th overall (30:56.75) and led Plainfield to a 13th place finish.

Danville’s duo of Brandon Siller and Daniel Gerber placed 26th in a time of 31:40.17. The Warriors finished 12th.

Mac White and Bryce Kinney led Cascade to a 15th place finish with their effort of 33:17.44, good enough for 46th.

Tri-West’s Chris Wright and Matt Knights placed 66th (36:04.91) to lead the Bruins.

GIRLS

No. 9-ranked Avon ran very well and bested No. 7 Westfield by an impressive 13-point margin to take the win.

Avon coach Brad Rosebrock lauded praise on his team’s efforts afterwards.
