This past weekend was a busy one as sectional and regional action was in full display from a wide variety of sports.
Area cross country teams traveled to participate in the regional meet while one local tennis player competed in the individual state tournament. Here’s a brief rundown of Saturday’s prep sports action.
Teams, runners advance to semistate: Several area teams and individual runners traveled to Marengo on Saturday to compete in the IHSAA regional cross country meet.
One boys team and three girls teams from our area advanced to the state finals while there were also several individuals who advanced without a team.
For the boys, the Jasper Wildcats advanced as a team as they placed fourth at the regional meet with 108 points. Advancing individually was Heritage Hills’ Mitchell Hopf (3rd, 16:06), Forest Park’s Spenser Wolf (5th, 16:32), Northeast Dubois’ Nathan Schnell (12th, 16:53), Southridge’s Dylan Bland (17th, 17:04) and Heritage Hills’ Nick Brinkman (20th, 17:24). Jasper’s Jackson Miller placed fourth overall with a time of 16:25.
On the girls side, Forest Park (second, 69 points), Jasper (third, 78 points) and Heritage Hills (fourth, 141 points) all advanced as teams. Advancing individually was Northeast Dubois’ Shelby Livingston (24th, 21:12) and Southridge’s Brooklyn Tretter (27th, 21:25). Top five finishers were Jasper’s Andi VanMeter (second, 19:02) and Forest Park’s Ellie Hall (fourth, 19:20) and Claire Mehling (fifth, 19:21).
Bauer’s season comes to an end: Northeast Dubois junior Reece Bauer’s run at the individual boys tennis state tournament came to an end at regional on Saturday.
Bauer lost to Bloomington North’s Christian Gettelfinger 6-1, 6-1 in the opening match of the regional. Gettelfinger was eventually defeated by Evansville Mater Dei’s Aaron Thompson in the championship match of the regional at Bedford North Lawrence.
