  • 2 min to read

The Borden boys’ cross country team won its second sectional title, and its first since 2012, at Saturday’s Crawford County Sectional. The Braves edged Floyd Central 71-74 for the team title. New Albany took third with 80.

MARENGO — Borden and Floyd Central captured the boys' and girls' team titles at Saturday's Crawford County Sectional. 

On the boys' side, the Braves placed three runners in the top 11 on their way to their second sectional title. Senior Gavin Just was the race runner-up, behind Corydon Central's Camden Marshall, for Borden, which won its first sectional crown in 2012. 

Lody Cheatham and Blake Hoffman took 10th and 11 respectively for the Braves, who edged eighth-ranked Floyd Central (which didn't use a couple of its top runners) by three points (71-74) for the team title. New Albany was close behind in third (80). 


Borden senior Gavin Just finished second, to Corydon Central’s Camden Marshall, in last Saturday’s Crawford County Sectional. He and his team will compete in this Saturday’s Crawford County Regional.

Marshall won the 5K race in 16 minutes, 9 seconds. Just finished in 16:44.3. New Albany twins Aaron and Aidan Lord placed fourth (16:50.7) and fifth (16:54.9) respectively. 

On the girls' side, 12th-ranked Floyd scored a perfect 15 points en route to its ninth consecutive sectional title.

The Highlanders were led by junior Jaydon Cirincione, who crossed the finish line in 19:08.2.

Cirincione was followed by teammates Savanna Liddle, a sophomore, who came in in 19:50.7 and Kaitlyn Stewart, a freshman, who finished in 20:18.8. 


Floyd Central junior Jaydon Cirincione won Saturday’s Crawford County Sectional in 19 minutes, 8.2 seconds. She led the Highlanders to their ninth consecutive title.

Providence sophomore Maci Hoskins finished fourth in 20:20.5. The Pioneers, however, fielded an incomplete team. 

Following Hoskins were Floyd seniors Natalie Clare in fifth (20:41.0) and Sydney Baxter in sixth (20:46.3). 

Corydon Central was second with 48 points while Borden took third with 75. The Braves were led by senior Kaylie Magallanes, who placed (21:04.5).
