North Clay capped their cross-country season with a pair of second place finishes at the Western Indiana Conference meet on Saturday at Brown County.

Tiffany Young won her second straight conference individual title when she crossed the finish line in 12:30, holding off Owen Valley's Melissa Jennings for the top spot.

Young battled early with Brown County's Brittney Wagler before Jennings pushed her in the latter stages of the meet. But Young held on for a seven second victory.

The Patriots however were the girls team champions with four runners in the top seven spots. Owen Valley finished with 33 points to North Clay's 47. Edgewood was third with 62 points followed by Brown County, Sullivan and an incomplete South Vermillion squad.

In the boys race, the Knights were also second as a team with 69 points to a dominant Edgewood squad that took six of the first eight spots in the race.

Brown County's Patrick McCormack placed first with a time of 10:57, just ahead of Edgewood's Tommy Weakley who ran a 10:59 with Sullivan's Mark Lighthizer third with the same time.

Jared Royer led North Clay with his 10th place finish with a time of 11:49 followed by Chris Smith in 11th place and Sam Spencer in 15th.

Seth Wright was 16th with Griffin Maurer in 17th and Ryan Lutes in 18th place. Jordan Maurer was 25th overall.

For the North Clay girls, Sarah Roeschlein crossed the finish line in fifth place followed by Cassandra Barnett in 10th for the Knights. Corey Laue placed 11th with Ashley Woodcox in 20th, Stephanie McMains in 22nd and Allie True in 24th.

The boys squad finished their season with a triangular meet record of 8-0 while the girls were 7-1 this season.

Young, Roeschlein, Barnett and Royer all were selected for All-Conference honors with their top-10 finishes.
