ELITE ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

Congratulations to this group of outstanding athletes selected by committee as our Elite Athletes of the Week for October 28-November 2, 2019.

(ELITE) Adam Moster of Batesville

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Boys Cross Country
  • Athlete’s year/position: Senior
  • Submitted by: Lisa Gausman
  • Submitter’s position: Head Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Adam took 20th spot at the semi-state meet placing him on the All Semi-State Team and earned him a trip to the state finals.  In Terre Haute, Adam placed 100th in the final state tournament meet of his high school career with a time of 16:54.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: Adam had a positive attitude at semi-state and was ready to fight when he stepped up to the start line in the pouring rain and wind. He did just that. Used his strength and determination and fought to the finish line to edge out the position of the 20th spot.  At the state finals, Adam stepped up to the line with 24 other teams and individuals joining him (214 in all). Adam was among some incredible competition and finished in the top half of the race, right at the 100th spot with a time of 16:54.  I’m very proud of Adam!

(ELITE) Lily Pinckley of Batesville

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Girls Cross Country
  • Athlete’s year/position: Sophomore
  • Submitted by: Lisa Gausman
  • Submitter’s position: Head Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Lily placed 23rd at semi-state which proved to be just fast enough to earn her an invitation to race at State.  In Terre Haute, Lily placed 63rd with a mark of 19:24.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: Again at semi-state, Lily ran tough…even in the pouring rain and wind. She gave her all, being just fast enough to earn the last individual spot on that state meet line.  At the state finals, Lily fought all the way through the finish line with 205 ladies to place 63rd with a time of 19:24. Way to go Lily!

(ELITE) Brenner Hanna of Greensburg

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Girls Cross Country
  • Athlete’s year/position: Junior

  • Athlete’s year/position: Junior Wide Receiver and Free Safety
  • Submitted by: Ryan Langferman

  • Athlete’s accomplishments: In Friday’s second round sectional win, Adam hauled in 3 catches for 42 yards, two of which were highlight worthy touchdown receptions.

Joshua Myers of Batesville

  • Level/Sport: Varsity Boys Cross Country
  • Athlete’s year/position: Senior
  • Submitted by: Lisa Gausman
  • Submitter’s position: Head Coach
  • Athlete’s accomplishments: Joshua ran a personal best at the semi-state meet.
  • Submitter’s personal comments: Although he didn’t quite run fast enough to be one of the top 10 individuals to move on to state, he was one of the rare kids to run a personal best in some very trying conditions. Congratulations Joshua!
  • Editor’s note: This submission came in after last week’s evaluation period had closed.  However, we held on to the submission and published it this week. We wanted to make sure Joshua was recognized on our AOW list for competing at semi-state.  It’s a great accomplishment for any cross country athlete.
