XC boys win first ever regional title

Girls place second to advance as well

INDIANAPOLIS — The Zionsville boys cross country team made history Saturday, Oct. 19, winning the school’s first regional title at Ben Davis.

The Eagles scored 47 points, topping second-place Avon by four.

“We had a race plan and strategy coming into the state tournament,” Zionsville head coach Gabe Porras said. “They did really well Tuesday (Oct. 15) in the sectional, winning our second title in a row. We were trying to focus in on things that we thought would put us in a good position for the semi-state in terms of attacking today’s race. They did a really good job of that. We still have some things to improve on, but we are really happy to get that championship. That is a nice added bonus for following a race plan that we think will put us in a nice position next week.”

Porras said there were benefits from racing on the same course as the sectional.

“It helps from the standpoint that they are familiar with the course,” he said. “We have a regular season meet here as well; so this is a place they have run a lot. So when we say ‘at this point we want to do this’ they can visualize that on the course. So that definitely helps.”

Oliver Rigg had the top finish for Zionsville, placing third in a time of 16:16.

Ryan Cash was fifth in a time of 16:21, and Adam Corya was seventh in a time of 16:26.

Logan Winters placed 11th in a time of 16:33 and Patrick Stuff rounded out the scoring Eagles with a 23rd place finish in a time of 16:55.

Rounding out the top-7 were Kyle Munz (25th, 16:59) and Andrew Brake (26th, 17:00).

“We had a few guys really run well,” Porras said. “Logan Winters, our fourth-guy, really ran well. Patrick Stuff had an awesome race as well. He was a guy who ran the JV race at Ben Davis earlier this season. So he has really stepped up. Andrew Brake ran really well today; he really moved up during the race. All of our guys ran well, but those guys I was really excited for.”
