BD boys sixth, girls 16th at home invitational

INDIANAPOLIS — Ben Davis hosted 19 teams for its annual cross country invitational on Saturday, with its experienced boys’ team placing sixth and its youthful girls taking 16th.

Zionsville slipped past Carmel for the boys’ championship with 72 points, while Ben Davis finished 103 points behind the first-place Eagles.

“It was perfect racing weather and the guys came in with the right mental attitude,” Ben Davis boys’ coach Nick Balbach said. “We’ve had some tough weeks of training and it’s starting to pay off.”

With 128 runners, Ben Davis senior David Behrmann placed 11th with a time of 16 minutes, 11 seconds. Fellow senior Cameron Peck (16:39) came in 27th, and classmate Josh Bishop (16:57) finished 44th.

“They’ve been running together for four years now and bring a leadership that’s essential for cross country, not only in races, but also in practice and getting people on the right path,” Balbach said.

Junior Amanual Araya (16:57, 45th), sophomore Shallmon Sigmon (17:09, 50th), junior Brandon Richey (17:24, 58th) and sophomore Noah Pumphrey (17:38, 66th) rounded out Ben Davis’ scoring.

Balbach said the Giants are coming together well as a group.

“This has been a really fun year so far, and we’ve been enjoying it,” he said.

On the girls’ side, West Lafayette had four top-10 finishers in logging a team score of 40 to beat second-place Avon by 10 points. Ben Davis came in with 432 points to finish ahead of four other teams.

“We went out and we fought hard,” Ben Davis girls’ coach Erin Toothman said. “We had lots of season-bests, so I couldn’t be more happy.”

Junior Constance Brahm (20:40, 63rd) was Ben Davis’ top finisher. She was followed by junior Regina Wright (21:28, 85th), freshman Krysta Speitel (21:29, 87th), sophomore Katelyn Speitel (22:36, 112th), senior Kayla Bear (22:49, 114th), junior Jessica Martinez (23:08, 122nd) and senior Katia Romero (23:11, 125th).

“This is kind of a rebuilding year for us since we have a pretty young team as far as number of years running,” Toothman said. “I think we’ll continue to build as the season goes on.”
