Batesville sweeps South Dearborn Cross Country sectional; Bulldogs Moster, Trojans Campbell MVPs

Area cross country teams enjoyed a great Saturday morning to run the sectional leg of the postseason.  To advance to a regional, a team had to finish in the top five. Also, any individual among the top 10 runners on non-qualifying teams also advanced.

Most of our local teams competed at Moores Hill hosted by South Dearborn where four out of the top five places were identical for both genders.

Batesville’s boys and girls won both titles and the two East Central teams were second. Greensburg’s squads took third while the two South Decatur’s programs placed fifth.  The fourth place spots were taken by the South Ripley girls and the Lawrenceburg boys.

Individual champions were East Central’s Emily Campbell who finished as the girls MVP in 19:32. She was 22 seconds ahead of South Ripley’s Lanie Nicholson.  Batesville’s Benjamin Moster won the boys title in 16:32.  He was 33 seconds in front of teammate Eli Loichinger.
