Four Howard County harriers reach state

Thor, Duke, Grider and Breedlove advance from CC semistate


“Team-wise, by and large we ran better than we did the last time we were up there, which was at the New Prairie Invitational in September. But we didn’t run as well as we did at sectional. The guys have to understand that while running at semistate is a worthy goal for the season, the real goal is running at the state meet the following week. We did have one guy who PRed, Mark Boss, who is one of our seniors.”

Kokomo’s Breedlove also advanced to state after finishing 12th in 16:19.0. The Wildkats took 17th in the team standings.

Ethan Sharp (93rd, 17:36.2), Jordan Fivecoate (96th, 17:36.6), Colten Pearce (149th, 18:19.2), and Max McHaney (158th, 18:36.3) rounded out Kokomo’s lineup.

Long-time Kokomo coach Ricke Stucker couldn’t remember the last time Howard County had three individuals make state out of the boys semistate.

“That’s quite a feat to have Duke, Grider and Breedlove all make it as individuals to state in cross country,” he said.

“Jeremy ran a really smart race. The toughest part, ‘Agony Hill,’ mile No. 2, he ran better than about anybody there. He really attacked the second mile and came out in about 13th place and picked up another spot in the lat mile and ran a very, very smart race.

“My No 7 [Logan Hawk] set a season record, which is unbelievable on that course, by 12 seconds.”

Maconaquah’s Zach Duranto finished 109th in 17:46.9, while Carroll’s Cameron Conn took 121st in 17:51.5 and Maconaquah’s Quinn Reinhardt was 148th in 18:18.8.
