The East Central Trojans began their Cross Country season this past Saturday. Traditionally the Trojans have raced in Richmond and a very large invitational. However, due to Covid-19 the invitational was canceled. Connersville High School graciously stepped up and allowed six teams to race on their course, so the athletes would have an opportunity to run.  All the runners reported to the starting line in face masks and the fans, as well, on the side lines were all masked up.  

The Lady Trojans took first place and the boy’s team second, following Connersville. In the girl’s race, Rachel Campbell, of East Central and a sophomore, led the first 800 with great strength, just prior to the mile she was passed by Marissa Cates of Northeastern high school.  Rachel never regained the lead however, these two ladies continued to lead the race finishing just about a minute ahead of the rest of the runners.      

East Central placed 6th with Faith Henderson, 7th with Kendall Pflum, 9th with Jessica Bender, and 10th with Hannah Doan.  All of these scoring Trojan runners were in the top 10!  Jocelyn Inderhees (14) and Jadda Hicks (19) also ran really well as the 6th and 7th runners.  The girls total team score was 23.  Haggerstown came in next with 43 and Franklin County took third with 63.  Hannah and Rachel, the only returning runners, from last year’s season, both ran faster times on this course than they did at the opening race one year previous.  It looks like their summer training is paying off.  With a strong healthy team, the Trojans are sowing a lot of promise!

On the Boys side we also had some great racing.  Michael Schwebach led the Trojans placing 4th overall.  Griffin Wener (5), Owen Hagen (10), Reilly Small (15) and Parker Fleming (16) rounded out the top scoring Trojans.  Logan Hicks and Nico DiMeglio were the 6th and 7th runners for the team.  Several of the boys had tremendous finishes passing runners in the chute to the finish line.  Although the boys ran well, they got beat by the Connersville team 47 to 50.  Placing 3rd was Northeastern, 4th-Haggerstown, 5th- Franklin County and 6th- Oldenburg.            

The Trojans will be racing on Wednesday at Lawrenceburg. 



East Central 3, Southport 1 - (16-25, 25-20, 25-17, 30-28) - Hope Fox had 21 digs and 13 kills for the Lady Trojans. Jessie Stenger added 14 kills and Allison Huismann and Addy Cleary combined for 35 assists in the EC win.
