Eastern beats Heights in boys soccer, volley.

Taylor’s girls cross country team edged Tippecanoe Valley 27-28 to win a three-team meet Tuesday on the Titans’ course. North Miami had an incomplete team.

Taylor sophomore Cami Hansen won the race in a personal-best time of 19:44.

The Titans’ other top runners were: Paige Welsh (fifth place, 24:02); Ashley Nguyen (ninth, 27:17); Aly Davis (10th, 29:19) and Kiley Williams (12th, 30:27).

“It was a nice night. The weather was really nice and the girls ran well,” Taylor coach Matt Carlile said. “Good runs for everyone.”

Hansen, a first-year runner, ran away from the field. Runner-up Brooklyn Conley of Tippecanoe Valley was more than three minutes back, finishing in 23:11.

“[Hansen’s] first mile was a little slower than I had expected. I was surprised when she ended up having a season best after the first mile time, but she looked good,” Carlile said.

Valley put its top five runners in the top seven for a strong score of 21 in the three-team meet at Taylor. Brandon Maull won the race in 17:31.

Taylor’s top five runners were: Kaliel Rucker (13th place, 20:57); Stephen Sholty (16th, 21:25); Nick Denman (17th, 21:28); Alex Guy (18th, 21:31) and Victor Skaggs (21st, 28:40).

“It was nice to see the guys running together, pushing each other. They’re running their fastest times of the year right now. It’s great to see the teamwork.


Northwestern 5, Oak Hill 2

Jacob Wagner and Blaine Brutus led the way in the Purple Tigers’ road win. Wagner scored three goals and also had an assist and Brutus scored a brace.

Also for Northwestern (9-3), Garrett Hite had two assists, Spencer Lubben had an assist and ‘keeper Evan LaDow had two saves.

“We got off to a little bit of a slow start. We was tied 2-2 at half, then in the second half, we really dominated play,” NW coach Jim Wagner said, noting the Tigers controlled the ball in the second half. “I thought Blaine Brutus had a really good game — a lot of hustle for us, kind of got us going.”
