The high school guys finished 2nd and the girls 3rd Saturday at the OCC-Capital Championships hosted by Lancaster High School.
Trailing first-place New Albany by 14 points with 800 meters to go, the guys team closed their race exceptionally well, but ultimately fell 7 points shy of a victory. Senior Will Butler (4th) and junior Drew Kotwis (5th) nabbed first-team all Conference honors, while junior Reece Klamorick (9th) earned second-team all Conference honors. 
As expected, the girls team finished third in team standings. Sophomore Allena Klamorick (3rd) earned first-team All-Conference honors for her strong performance and sophomore Bonnie Butler (10th) continued a fantastic season with her second-team All-Conference performance.
Twelve guys and ten girls set season best marks in the event, a fantastic achievement on Lancaster's notoriously hilly and challenging course.

Taking advantage of fantastic weather, nearly half of all Indians high school runners enjoyed season best marks on the hilly course. Sophomore Nate Hoffman led the Indian squad for the first time in his career, placing 11th in a personal record time of 18:15.

Five Indian runners placed in the top 21 (out of 177 runners,) including a break-out performance by sophomore Michael McKeon who placed 16th. Sophomore Adam Scott and junior Spencer Lewis both enjoyed PR marks on the hot and challenging course.

The middle school boys team finished 5th of 15 teams with 165 points in a loaded field. Unfortunately the middle school girls race was canceled halfway through the race when a large single bolt of lightning during the race prompted the required 30 minute delay.
