Meet Recap

With rainy conditions quickly becoming the norm for the New Castle Trojan cross country teams, the boys looked to once again battle the muddy conditions competing at the Yorktown “Jim Leffler” Cross Country Invitational. After watching the girls compete in a downpour of rain, the boys toed the line on a course that was soft and slick. Despite this, the boys team competed well placing 4th overall with 117 points. Leading the way for the Trojans was senior Chris Graham. Chris steadily moved up through the field placing 15th overall in a time of 17:48. Also finishing in the top 20 was sophomore Britton Adkins in 19th place with a time of 18:00. Junior Trevor Ragle continued his strong running by coming in shortly after Britton placing 23rd overall in a season best time of 18:10. Rounding out the top 5 were senior Jeff Melton (31st in 18:42) and sophomore Jaycee Wilburn (33rd in 18:43). Sophomore Ben Brock (PR of 19:13) and freshman Trey Williams (PR of 19:54) finished out the Trojan 7 in 49th place and 64th place, respectively.

Upon completion of the varsity boys race, the JV race finished out the Trojans day at Yorktown. Competitors in the JV race include: Tyler Vance (15th in 19:52), Chris DiBisceglie (21st in 20:37), Jace Jackson (28th in 20:54), Benjamin Head (38th in a PR of 21:46). Corbin Hines (56th in 23:18) and Elijah Sherrell (70th in a PR of 26:50).

The Trojans will next compete in the Delta Eagle Invitational at the Muncie Sportsplex competing in the Navy division with the girls at 8:30 AM and the boys at 10:00 AM.
