Indian Springs Cross Country Invite

Saturday was a historic day for the Westview Jr. High girls and boys cross country team at the Indian Springs Invitational meet in Columbia City.

Emily Stutzman shattered a 19-year old school record with a run of 11:10, which placed her third overall in the girls race. The previous standard of 11:31 was set in 1994 by Nicole Williams, who went on to win a state cross country championship for Westview in 1997.

The Lady Warriors finished sixth out of 26 teams in the meet.

Powered by the second-place finish of Matthew Yoder (10:07.04), the Warrior boys claimed their first-ever team championship in the Indian Springs event. Westview came in with 59 points, 17 less than runner-up Wawasee (76).

Lakeland and Prairie Heights also competed in the meet. The Panthers placed 21st and the Lakers 23rd in the girls event. The Laker boys finished 16th and the Panther boys 18th.
