Boys Cross Country: Today the boys sent 3 runners into the IHSAA regional at Rushville High School; all of the boys ran great, two of them performing well enough to advance into the semi-state next weekend.  Juniors Conner Kelley and Tyler Ramsey continued their great seasons, running amongst some of the fastest runners in the state today at Rushville. For their efforts, the boys advance into the semi-state next Saturday at Blue River Park in Shelbyville; race time is 3:45 pm.
Congratulations to all of our athletes and coaches, and best of luck next week!
