JASONVILLE -- The Southwestern Indiana Conference cross country meet might have been one of the very few high school events that took place on Thursday evening.
The meet went on as scheduled, albeit in soggy conditions and in a steady rain at the Shakamak High School course. Times were a bit slower than normal due to plenty of standing water on the course, but the Lakers' Drew Gambill cruised to an easy win, by slightly more than a minute over Clay City's Parker Modesitt. Gambill finished in a time of 16:44 while Modesitt was second in 17:46.
Eastern (Greene) maintained its streak of narrow team wins against the Eels by scoring a 37 to 41 win and take the SWIAC crown. Bloomfield was a distant third with 66 points with the Lakers in fourth with 121. Linton and WRV rounded out team scoring while North Daviess and Union had incomplete teams.
In the girls meet, Julie Riggins was the individual winner in 20:46, edging past the Lakers' Casey Fougerousse, who finished in 21:15.
Bloomfield was the team winner with 27 points, beating out Eastern's score of 41 followed by Shakamak with 62 points. Clay City, North Daviess and White River Valley each had incomplete teams.
Ben Denker finished 14th for the Eels in 19:00 followed by Austin Sinders in 17th with a time of 19:36, Wayne Tharp was 28th in 20:56 and Landry Moss was 34th in 22:12.
The Clay City girls were led by Tiffani Goodman in 14th with a time of 25:02, Kaleigh Decker was 24th in 27:35, Ashley Sumner was 26th in 27:37 and Nutchaya Thongthanee was 30th in 29:46.
The Eels will be back in action next at the sectional on Oct. 13 beginning at 5 p.m.
