Prep roundup, Sept. 22

Comets' Duke earns runner-up finish at New Prairie Invite.


“Lewis continues to run very well,” Eastern coach Brandon Mink said. “He was probably only 13th place around the mile. He didn’t neccesarily pick the pace up so much as that he paces so evenly, the other guys come back to him. He just really knows how to time his final surge and kick. The last mile, he went from sixth to second, just picking guys off right at the end. It was an exciting way to finish the race.”

Eastern’s other runners were: Brenton Cherry (107th place, 19:04.3); Trevor Buchanan (129th, 19:44.6); Matt Kerner (147th, 20:19) and Evan Hursh (176th, 21:39.6).

Western’s other top runners were: Riley Carter (30th, 17:28.4); Caleb Maddox (45th, 17:50.8); Auston Davenport (49th, 17:54.8) and Austin Elliott (74th, 18:24.7).

Northwestern’s top runners were: Zach Duranto (40th, 17:37.2); Shad Jakes (72nd, 18:20.3); Charlie Neher (96th, 18:47.9); Taylor McLain (122nd, 19:30.4) and Josh Perry (145th, 20:16.7).

“Zach Duranto ran a pretty good race, a very good race,” NW coach Dave Stevens said. “We had two or three other guys that ran course bests. I was pretty proud of that.”


Tipton Invitational

Southwood won the 17-team invitational with a score of 54, Hamilton Heights was second with 82, and Maconaquah was third with 86. Cass was sixth with 158, Tipton was seventh with 178, and Kokomo was 10th with 202. Taylor was incomplete.

Olivia Winegardner was fifth to lead Maconaquah in 20:39. Also for the Braves, Kate White was sixth (20:43), Vanessa Frazier was 17th (21:59, Amanda Shinn was 28th (22:41) and Bekah Shinn was 44th (24:29).

Katheryn Myers led Tipton in 26th in 22:38. Cimmanon Andrews was 10th in 21:03 to lead Kokomo.
