RUSHVILLE — On a rain-soaked course at Batesville, the Lion cross country team trekked through the course en route to the small school division title.

James Brashaber was eighth in 18:33. Kenny Nigh was ninth in 18:36. Austin Dwenger took 14th in 19:12 and Garrett Young was 19th in 19:31.

Batesville won the title for the girls with 25 followed by JCD 72, Lawrenceburg 79, North Decatur 84, Rushville 122 and South Ripley 143.

Rushville was led by Monica Dougherty in 12th with a time of 23:03. Michaela Orme was 21st in 25:29. Megan Clifton finished 27th in 26:30. Sarah Ford was 30th in 27:29. Lea Noe finished 32nd with a time of 29:44.

“Fogg has improved tremendously over the course of the season. He is running as well right now as he ever has. I’m really excited to see how he and the rest of the team performs on Saturday at our HHC meet at New Palestine,” Coach Jim Helsley noted. “The next two weeks will define the success of our season. The team’s goals of placing well at conference, winning the sectional and advancing to semistate are still within our grasp. The team really appreciates the support we have received at school and from the team’s parents. I can’t imagine having a better set of parents than what we currently have. Our success is due in large part to their continued support and participation.”
