The boys and girls cross country teams competed in the Mt. Vernon sectional this past Saturday. Warmer conditions called for slower times across the state Saturday but the runners battled it out to try and end their season on a high note. On the boys side, Sophomore Alex Johnson finished 35th to advance as an individual on a non-advancing team.
On the girls side, juniors Robyn Warrner (38th), Sophie Simon (18th), and freshman Hannah Webster (19th) also advanced out. Simon and Webster made the All-Sectional team with top 20 finishes.
The team will compete Saturday at the Rushville Regional. Top 20 places automatically advance with the top 10 individuals from non-advancing teams making it as well. Simon was the only Hornet last year to qualify for the Shelbyville semi-state.
