Our Artesian Cross Country Teams traveled to Eminence to compete in the Morgan County Meet. Carson Heath was our Morgan County Champion with a dominate performance on a very unique course that involved several switchbacks, the crossing of bridges and running down what might be described as a golf cart path. Heath led start to finish and immediately began cheering on his teammates. Our next finisher was Freshman, Martin Barco. Martin finished in 2nd place with a large lead on the 3rd place finisher. Griffin Worzella ran a fantastic race with a 6th place finish. With our first and second place finishes and Griffin Worzella finishing in 6th place, the scene was set for a very competitive race for 1st against Mooresville. Mooresville finished in 3rd, 4th and 5th followed by Griffin in 6th bringing the score to Martinsville 9 and Mooresville 12. (The top 5 finishers for each team score in a cross country meet and the lowest score wins so you can only imagine how exciting this race was becoming for the fans and coaches.) Logan Worzella, a Monrovia runner and a Mooresville runner raced side by side for the last 40 meters in only what could be described as a photo finish and after the smoke cleared, the timing chips placed Logan in 9th place. It was a great battle to the line that one can only dream of seeing. David Eggleton went on to finish in 15th place and when the final scores were tallied, Mooresville scored 30 points and We, Martinsville, scored 33. Our runners raced so well tonight. We ran to win and that’s all I could ask for. Great Job Gentlemen!!!

Our next meet is the valley twilight meet in Terre Haute on Saturday evening.
