10/17/17  D1 District Championships- Girls 7th, Guys 10th, Paige Bormann Advances
Neither team qualified out of the D1 District meet on Saturday, but both went out with their best collective races of the year.
Ranked 12th entering the race, the guys team finished 10th out of 17 teams in their section.  Six of the seven guys competitors enjoyed season best marks, led by sophomore Reece Klamorick (24th, 16:56) and junior Will Butler (37th, 17:11).  The guys' team average of 17:37 was easily their best of the season.
Ranked 11th entering the race, the girls team finished 7th out of 18 teams in their section.  The girls missed advancing to regionals as a team by one place and 19 points.  Six of the seven girls competitors enjoyed season best marks, led by senior Paige Bormann (18th, 19:47) and freshmen Allena Klamorick (31st, 20:27).  The girl's team average of 20:47 was also easily their best of the season.  The girls had an extremely gutsy race and managed to beat four teams who had beat them previously in the regular season.
Senior Paige Bormann's advanced to next Saturday's regional meet courtesy of her top 24 finish.  Paige will race this Saturday, 12:30pm at Pickerington North High School.

10/17/17  OCC-Capital Championships, Guys & Girls Finish Third
Both Canal Winchester High School Cross Country teams finished third in their respective OCC championship races on Saturday, held at Lancaster High School.
The heat and hilly terrain made for a very challenging course, but many Indian runners rose to the occasion with strong performances.
Paige Bormann (3rd place), Allena Klamorick (7th place), and Will Butler (7th place) were all awarded First Team All-OCC status for their top 7 finishes.  
Remarkably, Nathan Hoffman (20th place, 19:11) earned a personal record mark on a course that ran, on average, ~6% slower than the Cambridge course from two weeks ago.
Complete OCC results can be found here- http://www.timingfirst.com/results/2017/10-14-LA/
Both Indian teams will return to action this Saturday at the D1 Central District Championships held at Watkins Memorial High School.  The girls will race in Section 3 at 2:30pm and the guys will race in Section 2 at 3:30pm.
