For the first time in 17 seasons, the Boys Cross Country team is advancing as a team to the IHSAA Semi State Meet. After finishing 5th at the IHSAA Regional Meet at Oxbow Park on Saturday, the Eagles will return as a team for the first time since 2003.
Adams ran well, in what was the most important race of the season so far for the team on the great course for cross country on an excellent morning to run a race. The top 5 teams and next 10 individuals move on to the IHSAA Semi State at Huntington next week. Adams finished with a score of 162. It was a close race, as only 10 points separated the 5th through 8th place teams.
William Neubauer was the first runner from Adams to finish in the race. Neubauer ran near the front of the pack for most of the race, finishing in 6th place in a time of 16:24.
It was not just Neubauer, it took an entire team effort for the Eagles to make it out as a team. Dylan Hockx was next for Adams, running a time of 17:07, good for 21st place. Michael Camileri finished in 40th place in 17:37. Alex Macharaschwili was 49th in 1746. Bol Agwick finished in 18:07, which put him in 61st place. Jack Rancourt took 68th place in 18:19. The final runner for Adams was Sam Stanton who finished in 18:48 in 79th place.
