NASHVILLE -- Consistent rain throughout the week and another dose of drizzle on Friday night provided cross country runners a messy course for the Brown County Regional on Saturday.

Terre Haute North's John Mascari and Tapring Goatee didn't seem to be fazed by the conditions as each runner came away with a win on the sloppy Brown County course. The Patriots also came away with regional team titles to go with a sectional crown as the boys' team cruised past Bloomington South easily, 28 to 61 for its third straight regional title. The girls matched the boys' title by defeating Bloomington South, 28 to 36.

Muddy conditions that, at times, reached runners ankles and made for some treacherous footing, basically rendered times useless for comparisons, but showed the mettle of the runners.

Mascari was challenged throughout the race by Martinsville's Jace Lowry before he pulled away late to win by nine seconds in 16:10. Goatee meanwhile took off with teammate Chanli Mundy and the two stayed in the same positions with the freshmen 16 seconds apart. Goatee's winning time was 19:03.

The Northview Knights top-finisher was Conor Strain, whose career concluded with a 28th-place finisher in a time of 17:57. Alyssa Conrad led the girls' squad with a 33rd-place in 22:57.

The top-15 individuals advanced to the semi-state next weekend on the same course.

Clay City's Jesse Vansickle was timed at 18 minutes, 35.39 seconds at the boys cross country regional at Brown County Saturday. He finished in 43rd position.
The Clay City boys placed ninth as a team followed by Northview in 10th position. The Northview girls were eighth overall as the top-five teams move on to the semistate as well.

The Knights' Tanner Brown placed 59th in 19:39 with Kyle Yocom in 62nd in 20:17, Ryan South was 64th in 20:40, Patrick Durcholz was 65th in 20:41, Christian Swan took 71st in 23:26 and Jacob South was 72nd in 24:22.

For the Eels, Jesse Vansickle was the top runner with a time of 18:35 in 43rd and Parker Modesitt was 47th in 18:47. Conner Modesitt placed 55th in 19:24, Ben Denker was 60th in 19:52, Austin Sinders was 61st in 20:04, Wayne Tharp took 67th in 21:42 and Landry Moss was 70th in 23:02.

The Northview girls were paced by Conrad and Corey Laue placed 38th in 23:20. Nicole Nelson was 48th in 24:11, Shelby Sands returned after missing the sectional to place 57th in 24:54. Eileen Stinnett came home 59th in 25:25, Tori Rohrabaugh placed 60th in 25:35 and Meaghan Pilman was 62nd in 26:14.
