TERRE HAUTE â€” Culver Girls Academyâ€™s Waverly Neer edged out Bloomington Southâ€™s Nicole Lucas by .7 of a second to win the 30th annual Girls State Cross Country Championship at the Wabash Valley Sports Center in Terre Haute Saturday.
Neerâ€™s 18:17.5 time earned her a clean sweep of state tournament championships after winning individual titles at both the Culver Academies Sectional and Regional, and her record-breaking 17:53.9 at the New Prairie Semistate last weekend followed up another meet-record finish at regional October 16.
BREMEN â€” A coachâ€™s expectations can be hard to surpass, but the Bremen girls cross country team did so this fall.
Coach Mick Gardnerâ€™s Lions won the Northern State Conference title and went to semi-state as a team, while senior Hope Jordan made it to state as an individual.
â€śI didnâ€™t think weâ€™d make it that far at the beginning of the year,â€ť Gardner said. â€śI thought we had a good shot at making it out of the sectional. They surprised me in individual races and in how far we made it as a group. It was a lot of fun.â€ť
