Cross Country:

On Saturday, Sept. 9, the boys’ and girls’ teams traveled to Noblesville for the All-Catholic Championships – a competitive meet with top 25 teams such as Brebeuf, Indianapolis Cathedral and Guerin Catholic High School. This year’s race wasn’t set to repeat last year’s mud bath from rain falling the day before. The pace was quick from the get go for each race. Some personal bests were achieved.

*=Personal record time ran
Boys Varsity (team 10th of 16)- T Gaines (24th), Upton (46th), Perkinson (52nd), Dykes (66th)*, Schroering (74th)*, Lynch (90th)*, and Applewhite (98th).
Girls Varsity- Boesing (21st) & Flispart (86th).
Boys JV – Reyes, A Gaines, Russell*

Sept. 16 Crawford County Invitational: In Marengo, Ind., the teams ran on one of the best Cross Country courses in Southern Indiana. It so happens to be the same course used for our sectional and regional. Unique to this event, there are four races altogether divided among grades between boys and girls. High humidity and rising heat affected about 99 percent of all the competitors. The goal was to be competitive with teams that will be in our sectional/regional. The guys beat sectional opponents New Albany, Corydon, Crawford County, and Borden while finishing right behind Jeffersonville. Team finish was 6th of 26 teams.

Boys Freshman – Lynch (45), A Gaines (50), Russell (59)
Boys Sophomore – Lancaster (10), Perkinson (14), Applewhite (67)
Boys Junior – T Gaines (7), Upton (12), Dykes (19)
Boys Senior – Schroering (48)
Girls Sophomore – Boesing (6)
Girls Senior – Flispart (36)

Sept. 23 Duke Meyer Classic: This past weekend both guys and girls ran at Hanover College on its well-kept Cross Country course (past host of the NCAA D3 championships). The heat and humidity once more played another decisive role in an otherwise very competitive meet. Both teams took the opportunity to work on their racing tactics before the upcoming postseason. For the boys, Thomas Gaines, Alex Perkinson and Bradon Dykes made up ground by passing 10-15 runners the second half of the race. For the girls, Natalie Boesing started in the top 10 and finished 2nd by the time she reached the finish.

Next meet: Providence Invitational tomorrow, Sept. 26, at Community Park at 5:30 (boys) & 6:05 (girls).

Congratulations to the Varsity Volleyball team on their win against Trinity Lutheran High School Wednesday night in straight sets 25-10, 25-8, 25-12.  The Pioneer offense was a force to be reckoned with as Lilly Bivens (31 assists) spread the ball to her hitters to dominate the court.

The defensive effort of Madison Kruer, Ceci Rush, Grace Hublar, and Megan Flanagan helped keep the ball in the setter’s hands all night long.
