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.

The High School guys finished 9th of 12 teams at Saturday's very competitive Pick Central Invite.  Reece Klamorick (16th) and Will Butler (18th) both enjoyed excellent finishes, but inconsistency plagued the team as all other scorers finished outside of the top 50.  Ian Lewis led the way for the Indians in the guys open race, finishing 44th out of 228 runners. Kaylor Byrd managed a personal record mark for the guys team despite temperatures in the mid to high 80s during his race.
The High School girls finished a solid 4th of 10 teams in the varsity field. Bonnie Butler had a breakout race for the girls, passing 27 runners in the final two miles of the race to place 25th overall.  Bonnie was one of four Indian's runners to place in the top 25.  The lady Indians also had a great performance in the open race, placing five runners in the top 35 and finishing 5th as a team.  Bethany Hinkle (14th) and Kaitlyn Swearingen (16th) led the way for the girls in the open race.
