Orioles run away with county titles

DANVILLE – Avon left no doubt on Tuesday who is Hendricks County’s cross country powerhouse, as both the girls’ and boys’ teams placed all seven runners in the top 10 at the annual county meet.

Avon’s Malyka Abramson and Taylor Nicholson finished 1-2 on the girls’ side, as the Orioles’ low total of 18 points was 32 better than second-place Plainfield.

“We’ve had some really great wins as a team this year, but haven’t often had all seven girls firing on all cylinders on the same day,” Avon girls’ coach Brad Rosebrock said. “I feel like today all of them were on and did well.”

Plainfield was followed in the final girls’ standings by Brownsburg (81 points), Danville (113) and Tri-West (119). Cascade was one runner short of registering as a team.

It was the third-straight county individual title for Abramson, who finished in 18:12 while holding back a little due recurring knee issues.

“I knew I wasn’t going to go as hard as I had been since my knees have been hurting,” said Abramson, who is going to a doctor on Thursday to have the problem assessed. “Around this time is usually when I get injured and it’ll affect my postseason runs. (Rosebrock) told me to run fast enough to win, so that’s what I tried to do.”

Avon’s Kelsie Mothersead (fourth), Lauren Heeger (fifth), Kate Bernicke (sixth), Alissa Lustgarten (eighth) and Fiona Kelly (tenth) also placed in the top 10. Plainfield’s Samantha Woodford (third) and Sydney Simpson (ninth), and Brownsburg’s Julia Popenfoose (seventh) were the only non-Avon runners to do so.

Carrie Chappell (13th) had the best finish for Tri-West, while Melanie Foreman (14th) was tops for Danville and Tarah Thornburg (24th) led Cascade.

On the boys’ side, Avon’s Alec Scheerer, Jon Cramer, Will Anderson, Taylor Kleyn, Brandon Vu, Dawit Woldai and Presley Martin finished in order in spots 3-9 as the Orioles tallied 25 points, 22 lower than second-place Brownsburg.
