"We knew that we had a good shot to finish that high on the girls' side, but it would take a very good day. I real- ly feel like we are winning a lot more battles within the race than when we started the year and making a lot of progress. We know that sectionals are going to be a battle, probably even more so than in the last couple years. I feel like the kids are up to the task and be- lieve in their capabilities. It will be a lot of fun to see how it plays out." Pike Central will compete in the Sectional 31 Meet at South Knox on Saturday, Oct. 12.

"I told the girls' team early in the year that they had a shot at getting first or second de- pending how things went, but morning of the race, it was our goal to get second and had a legitimate shot at getting second." Southridge won the team completion with a score of 41. They were fol- lowed by Tell City (70), Forest Park (72), Pike Central (76), North Posey (120), Gibson Southern (144) and Heritage Hills (156).
