Before the sun came up, the Batesville Cross Country team loaded on the bus to head for an 18 team invitational at Ben Davis High School. 

The Bulldogs were up against many 4A-5A schools and many ranked in the top 25 of the state.  The Dogs stepped up to the challenge and had a very good morning.   

We had 4 athletes finishing in the top 20 of the race, 8 runners racing through with an all-time personal best time, and many others running the best time for the season.     

I am super proud of our Bulldogs.  Their efforts placed both the girls and the boys in 5th place overall (out of 18)! The girls were beaten by 5th ranked Zionsville who scored 66 points with 6th ranked Franklin Central at 70 and 12th ranked Brownsburg at 76.  Also just in front of Batesville at 109 points was Center Grove (25th ranked) with the Bulldogs securing 5th place at 121 points.  Leading the way for the Dogs was Ava Hanson crossing in 11th (19:46) and Sophie Myers, 20th (20:21) with Maria Lopez closely behind in 24th (20:25).  Then a nice pack of Bulldogs crossed the line in 32nd, 24th, and 36th respectively.  They were Madison Rahschulte (20:56), Lily Pinckley (21:00) and Megan Allgeier (21:04).  Finishing out the top 7 varsity runners for Batesville was Trysta Vierling at 46th place (22:02).  

The boys, also placing 5th were beaten by 10th ranked Zionsville with 47 points. Just behind them was Franklin Central (8th ranked) at 51 points, Brownsburg (23rd ranked) with 76 points, and Ben Davis at 119 points.  The boys were led by Ean Loichinger fighting to the finish in 11th place (16:38) and followed closely by teammate Benjamin Moster in 15th place (16:43).  Next for the Bulldogs was Adam Hollowell placing 27th (17:07).  To finish out the top 7, Batesville had a nice pack of 4 competing to the finish line getting 44th, 45th, 46th, and 489th place.  They were: Daren Smith (18:01), Nathan Villani (18:03), Will Nuhring (18:05), and Eli Loichinger (18:06). 

Although the JV was not scored, the girls were led by Carley Pride getting 20th in the JV (23:35) and Kyler Daulton in 24th (18:56) and Landon Gutzwiller right behind him in 25th (19:02).   

As mentioned above, 8 athletes ran an all-time personal best and they were Sophie Myers, Megan Allgeier, Benjamin Moster, Eli Loichinger, Will Nuhring, Nathan Villani, Kyler Daulton and Landon Gutzwiller.  Way to go Dogs!  

Batesville will get another great week of workouts as they will prepare for an even bigger race in Indianapolis next Saturday…the Riverview Invitational, hosted by Westfield.  The Bulldogs will compete against 17 teams with 10 out the 17 girls teams are ranked in the top 25 right now and 12 out of the 17 boys teams are ranked in the top 25.  This will be our toughest race of the season prior to Semi-State.  Unfortunately, this will be a non-spectator day, but results will be immediately posted on www.iwant2run.com.    

Good Luck Dogs!!!

Eagles Coach Cat Schmeltz.
‘We started out both sets strong and had the lead when we hit 20 in both sets. We just didn’t keep the focus until the end of the sets to pick up the wins.
