The Batesville Invite (info submitted by Jonathan Meyer)

In the girl’s race Rachel Campbell took to the front of the pack.  For the first 1,000 meters there was a strong pack of runners, but after the mile It was only Campbell and Ava Hanson from Batesville.  After the second mile Hanson pressed forward and led the rest of the race, with Lopez of Batesville moving up on Campbell; however Campbell’s strong finish put her in a solid second place.  Rachel’s time was a 19:52; this is the fifth time she has run in the 19’s this season.  The Trojan ladies were represented by a strong pack tonight, there was only 50 seconds between their second and fifth runner; this time keeps dropping; their order was: Pflum, Henderson, Inderhees and Doan.  Jessica Bender and Jada Hicks finished out varsity spots.

The Trojans ran this course on Saturday for the EIAC and three of them ran faster times and also obtained personal records: Doan dropped 4 seconds, Inderhees dropped 14 and Henderson 18.  Overall it was a great night of racing, it is amazing to see many of these girls drop time every meet. 

In the boy’s race there were many smiles and cheers after the race, as six of the young men ran faster than their time on Saturday and four of them obtained a personal record.  The race was led by Owen Hagen for the first 800 meters.  His lead was impressive, but could not be held onto.  Schwebach and Werner took a more conservative approach moving up from the back and both ran under 18 minutes (Werner’s 17:33 was a personal record).  Joining them tonight under the 18-minute barrier for the first time was JJ Stenger in a time of 17:53; this was a 60 second drop in time from Saturday.  Also running personal records tonight were Reilly Small and Nico DiMeglio.  There was much excitement and joy seeing hard work paying off.           

The Trojans have only one day to rest prior to racing again at Greensburg on Thursday!

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
