Edited meet report from Rushville coach Jim Marlatt:

After the last two years of poor weather conditions, it was great to be able to host this meet again and under beautiful conditions! This event has been a Rushville tradition for a long time and it is truly special. Everyone involved did a fantastic job to make sure our athletes had the opportunity to compete in a safe environment.  For safety purposes, the meet was reduced to four teams, but the competition was strong and everyone who participated ran extremely well.

Both boys and girls teams took a step forward. Everyone has been working very hard and it was obvious by the results. Both teams still have a lot of room to improve but today proved what they have been doing is working.

The Rushville girls finished fourth. Freshman Maddy Hankins led the way with a 19th place time of 24:31. Sofia Kemple and Abby Herbert finished 22nd and 23rd with times of 25:12 and 25:45. Yanitza Norvell and Cyndi Tush finished 27th and 28th with times of 27:06 and 27:13. Ashley Whitham and Mia Norvell came in 30th and 31st in 28:02 and 29:00. And Lanea Adams finished in 34th place with a time of 34:37. All of the girls achieved their season best time.

The Rushville boys team placed 3rd.  Kyle Stanley had a strong race to finish in 6th with a time of 17:57. Caleb Krodel and Ryan Schindler came in 14th and 17th with times of 18:46 and 19:02. Trenton Dyer and Adam Bousman placed 19th and 21st with times of 19:27 and 19:28. Charlie Sterrett and Sam Sterrett finished 23rd and 25th with times of 19:47 and 19:57. And Heath Barada placed 34th with a time of 21:30. All of the boys ran their season best time.
