    NEW MARKET – County athletes fared well at the Sagamore Conference Cross Country meet Saturday at Southmont. In all, the county had 16 runners (nine boys and seven girls) represented on both the first and second all-Conference team.
    The top finisher on the boy’s side was Mountie Brooks Long. He finished second to help pace the Mounties to an overall fourth place finish.
    Crawfordsville’s Maddie Hurt made it a 3-peat individually as she won the girls meet in a time of 20:39 helping the Athenians to their first ever Sagamore Conference championship beating Western Boone by 2-points.
    “Maddie Hurt looked solid today from start to finish,” said Athenian head coach Megan Craig. “We knew it would be a close race (for the team title), and we had all five girls run well today. This is huge for our program going forward.”

    Southmont has one of the most physically demanding courses in all of West Central Indiana, just ask the participants in Thursday’s Montgomery County cross country meet.

    With runners crawling across the finish line and a few almost passing out, you could tell everyone gave it their all.

  • Hurt took XC scene by storm
    Monday, November 3, 2014 1:13 PM
    A year ago, most Sagamore Athletic Conference cross country coaches didn't know who Maddy Hurt was. By the time she won the conference meet by a massive 49 seconds, she was impossible to ignore.

    And she's just a freshman.

    Her consistent ability to lead all county and conference runners in times all season made Hurt the Montgomery County Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year.

    "I thought Maddy could hit 22 (minutes) at the beginning of the season," first-year Crawfordsville head coach Megan Craig told The Paper. "I thought that was a reasonable goal. She was around 25 minutes. After the Charger Classic, I started thinking she could get close to 20 minutes.

    "It was a big deal to lead the country throughout the year," Craig added.

    Joining Maddy Hurt on the Montgomery County All-County Girls Cross Country team are: Kelsey Dugger, of Southmont; Hana Heide, Haley Heide and Courtney Clark from North Montgomery.

    Dugger was a regional qualifier this season. She took seventh at the Sagamore Athletic Conference meet.

    Hana and Haley Heide were the second and third fastest girls in the county consistently all season. Both broke the 21-minute mark to advance out of the Harrison regional and into the New Prairie semistate. Hana was 102nd and Haley was 118th as individuals. They both broke the sophomore record at North Montgomery this season.

    Courtney Clark helped the Chargers to county and conference titles and a spot in the regional as a team. She provided leadership for a young team throughout the year.

    Honorable mentions for the All-County team are Madison Pinkard, Emma McDole and Kenzie Emerick, all from North Montgomery. Pinkard earned first team All-Conference with a ninth place finish. McDole and Emerick were second team All-Conference with top-20 finishes.

    NEW CARLISLE - Cross country running is about dealing with obstacles. Sometimes those obstacles are out of your control. That was the case Saturday for Southmont's sophomore Brooks Long at the New Prairie semistate.

    The sophomore lost a shoe during the race when he was stepped on by a fellow runner. He finished in 27th, as the 12th individual from a non-advancing team. He needed to be 10th from a non-advancing team to qualify for state. His time was 16:51, six seconds outside of the time that would have gotten out.

  • State finals in sight - Girls' semistate preview
    Thursday, October 23, 2014 8:14 PM
    Five county athletes will compete at the New Prairie cross country semistate on Saturday. A finish in the top 10 of the individuals that don't advance with a team will mean a trip to the state finals next week in Terre Haute.

    On the girls' side, North Montgomery will send twin sophomore runners Hana and Haley Heide. Freshman Maddy Hurt will represent Crawfordsville.

    Hurt was eighth at the Harrison regional with a time of 20:04.

    "Looking at the teams feeding into New Prairie, I feel like Maddy is in a great position," Crawfordsville head coach Megan Craig said. "If the projected schools advance out, she has a good shot of advancing as an individual with a solid (personal record). She does a great job of stepping up to challenges. The Harrison regional is a fast group of runners and she took eighth overall. Breaking 20 minutes and running a mid-19 is a goal I think she can attain."

  • State finals in sight - Boys' semistate preview

    Five county athletes will compete at the New Prairie cross country semistate on Saturday. A finish in the top 10 of the individuals that don't advance with a team will mean a trip to the state finals next week in Terre Haute.

    On the boys' side, Southmont's Brooks Long and Crawfordsville's Davis Thompson will represent the county.

    Long, who ran a 16:40 at the Harrison Regional is seeded 13th at the semistate. If he can match or improve on that time he will be in a position to get to state. For Thompson, there is some time to drop, but it's achievable. He ran a 17:16 at Harrison.

    "Davis will need to run a 16:30 on Saturday," Crawfordsville head coach Megan Craig predicted. "This has been the magic number I have thrown out to three of the top boys all year. Davis had a bit of a set back before conference when he was out with an injury for 10 days. It's hard to come back mid-week of the sectional and be ready to race. I feel like he has had a few weeks to get back into the swing of things and is ready to go and get that time."

  • Five advance from XC regional
    Sunday, October 19, 2014 7:22 PM
    LAFAYETTE -- Five athletes will represent Montgomery County in the New Prairie cross country semistate on Saturday.

    Maddy Hurt, of Crawfordsville (20:04), and Brooks Long, of Southmont (16:40), each took eighth in their respective races to pace the county athletes. They both advanced as individuals.

    "I'm very excited for Brooks," Southmont head coach Marvin Walters. "He has continued to be hungry all season. For just a sophomore he is very mature in his mental approach. He makes himself better every day. We were confident that he would get to go (to the semistate)."

    "Maddy ran a great race. Placing 8th overall in regionals was indicative of her hard work," Crawfordsville head coach Megan Craig said. "She went out strong and let her hard work all season carry her through. She has the mental toughness of a veteran runner, she knows what it means to push until you cross the finish line. She has a very bright future. I feel privileged to be a part of it. We look forward to semi state with both her and Davis Thompson."

  • Lady Chargers own Sagamore
    Sunday, October 5, 2014 7:51 PM
    NEW MARKET-North Montgomery's girls' cross country team fought through chilly temperatures and cutting winds Saturday morning to win the Sagamore Athletic Conference race in deciding fashion. They tallied 34 team points, well ahead of second-place Frankfort's 82.

    Crawfordsville's Maddy Hurt, a freshman, was the individual winner of the girls race with a time of 21:22. Neither Crawfordsville nor Southmont fielded a full girl's team.

    "I couldn't be more excited, happy, and proud, both for and of this team," Charger head coach Mike Myers said. "They put in the hours over the summer, and during the season, and they are the ones that should get all of the credit. Each and every girl out-performed their goal time, as well as their places, especially runners 5-7 (McDole, Emerick, and Weliever). I knew the Heides, Clark, and Pinkard would be near the top, but it was our back half that finished the job. This is the first conference championship in a running sport for North (boys or girls) since 1996, and the girls knew that, and believed that they could end that streak. I'm lucky to have a group of girls that perform each and every time they come to a meet, whether big or small. To have six All-Conference runners is really a treat, because they performed so well, now let's hope that carries into sectionals."

    GREENCASTLE-Maddy Hurt was fast Saturday. Faster than she's been all season. The hard work is paying off.

    Hurt, competing for the Crawfordsville cross country team at the Greencastle Tiger Cub Invitational, ran her best time of the season (20:07) and finished second overall. She was only behind Alli Workman, a state qualifier last year.

    Hurt shaved nearly a minute off her best time to set a new fastest time for girls in the county this year. Her previous best was 21:00.

    And Hurt's just a freshman. And the fastest freshman at the event. The Athenians did not take a team score for the girls. Their only other runner, Amy Hutchison, finished in 31:13.
