As the Eagles enter the post season, it is perform or go home. At the IHSAA Cross Country Sectional Meet at Erskine Golf Course this afternoon the Adams boys chose to perform and extend their season by another week. The boys finished in 5th place out of eight teams that scored as complete teams. The top five teams and the next 10 individuals from non-advancing teams advance to next weeks IHSAA Regional Meet at Oxbow Park. The Eagles finished with 132 points.
Freshman Julio Martinez stepped it up and got out of his comfort zone to take the spot as the top Eagle runner, finishing in 21st place with a time of 18:53. Sophomore Sami Mirza finished next for the Eagles in 24th place.
A tight pack of Eagles was able to finish strong together in order to edge out Bremen for the fifth team spot. Momin Mirza, Teo Reimbold Thomas and Logan Reimbold Thomas finished together within four seconds providing the necessary points.
Kieran O’Brien and Will Neubauer finished in 34th and 42nd place respectively.
The Eagles survive to compete again next week at the Elkhart Central IHSAA Regional at Oxbow County Park.
