H.S. CROSS COUNTRY: Dragons finish second at Brown County regional

Henryville duo earns pair of top-10 finishes; Columbus North dominates both races

NASHVILLE — Columbus North’s boys and girls — both ranked in the top three in the state — both easily cruised to Brown County Regional championships at Nashville.

Silver Creek’s girls were a distant second to the Bull Dogs, but Brown County was a distant third to the impressive Dragons.

North, Silver Creek and Brown County will be joined by Seymour and Columbus East at next Saturday’s Brown County Semistate. The top five teams and the top 10 runners not on a top-five team advanced.

“The girls continue to run well even though it was tense before the race because we were not sure Maggie [Shields] would be able to run due to back problems,” Creek coach Darrell Kingery said.

Silver Creek’s boys finished eighth — one spot ahead of Henryville — in the boys’ race.

“The boys ran really well on a muddy course,” Kingery said. “With no seniors on the team, hopefully the best is yet to come in about a year from now.”

Martinsville, Seymour, Brownstown Central and Columbus East joined North to advanced to the semistate.



Among a sea of Bull Dogs at the front of the pack is where Silver Creek’s Mackenzie Crouch could be found on Saturday.

Crouch was the only non-Columbus North runner to finish in the top five. The Southwestern Sectional champion finished fourth in 19:04 to pace the Silver Creek, which placed five of its seven runners in the top 30. Crouch’s time was one minute and two seconds behind North champion Mackenzi Caldwell, who finished 16 seconds ahead of teammate Sierra Lax for the individual title.

“Everyone picked it up, especially Mackenzie, who ran a personal best on a muddy course,” Kingery said.

Shields crossed the line in 12th despite her back programs. Also for Silver Creek, Brittany Sharp was 17th, Jessica Backherms placed 27th and Miranda Coats finished 30th.
