Meet Recap

The Logansport Girls Cross Country Team competed at the Indiana Wesleyan Wildcat Invitational in Marion on Saturday and finished 14th out of 25 teams. The Berries were led by Isabelle Crain with a 70th place finish in 22:33. Megan Benn and Adria Higgins were 87th and 88th, respectively, in 22:55 and 22:56. Joseline Hernandez was 92nd in 23:20 and Cassidy Kestle was 95th in 23:22. Makaya Robinson finished in 104th in 23:43 and Carolayn Salamanca was 105th in 23:44 for the Berries top seven finishers.

“We had 4 of our top 7 runners on Saturday drop some significant time from the last meet and the other 3 were neutral for the most part. We are training hard for the next 2.5 weeks before conference and I think the training is taking effect, but we may not see how much until we back off a little because a lot of the girls are running on dead legs right now,” said LHS coach, Brian Morrill. “Crain dropped about 30 seconds today, Higgins was down about 20 seconds, Hernandez dropped 53 seconds, and Salamanca was down 43 seconds so we are going in the right direction, but we only have 4 to 5 weeks before we have to be at our best,” said Morrill. “This was a very competitive meet with some really good runners in the top 25 and Hamilton Southeastern and Valparaiso are two of the top programs in the State,” said Morrill.

The junior varsity Berries finished 6th out of 11 teams in their race. Emilie Edwards led the team with a time of 24:39, Emily Justice set a personal best with 24:48, Kaitlyn Neal came in at 25:12, Courteney Biggs was 26:03, and Azucena Hernandez rounded out the scoring with a time of 26:04.

The Berries run at the New Prairie Invitational next Saturday.
