The boys cross country team split squads Saturday sending 10 runners to Brown County for the Eagle Classic, while the rest ran at the Ben Davis Invite. The Brown County contingent finished 3rd on a muddy course. The Ben Davis runners competed on a course that was underwater, and finished 10th with a group of junior varsity runners competing against other schools’ varsity squads. The final 20 runners ran as a true JV team, finishing 4th at Ben Davis.
Individually, Aaron Bennett, Desmond Herrell, Nick Leahy, Noah Shourd and Kevin Greene scored for the Shamrocks at BC, while Derek Maue also ran a strong race. In very poor conditions at Ben Davis, particularly good races were turned in by Luke Tragesser, Jon Huntley, Johnny McClure, Joe Barnett, Samuel Novak, and Gavin Clinkenbeard.
The boys are back in action Saturday, Sept. 17, hosting the FlashRock Invitational at the Hilltop Course at Northview Church in Carmel.
