Edited Rushville recap from coach Amy Tush via Jim Tush: Rushville’s cross country teams travelled to Union City.  Our boys team came away with the championship bettering sectional favorite Centerville by only two points.  It was an exciting race and total team effort for the boys.  We were losing at the 4k, but down the final stretch, they found a will to compete and jumped into another gear to steal the championship from Centerville.  It was great to see the boys perform and not give up. 

The Lions had four finishers in the top 10.  Kyle Stanley held his own with a second place finish.  Hunter Parmerlee, Charlie Sterrett and Ryan Schindler filled out the top 10.  Then coming out of nowhere, in the last kilometer of the race to round out our top five scorers, was freshman Wyatt Jacobs.  All the boys had season bests.  I am excited to see more improvements over the next few weeks as we approach the postseason. 

The girls also had an outstanding day.  They placed second only to the sectional favorite Centerville.  The Lady Lions were led by senior Savannah Westphal placing seventy with a time of 22:44.  Olivia Wehr was not far behind her in ninth.  Mia Norvell, Sophia Kemple, and Maddy Hankins finished out our top five scorers.  The girls all had season bests.  This race helped us learn about what we need to do to reach our goals this season.
