Mount Vernon edges Arabians boys

PENDLETON, Ind. — Many of the teams that competed in Tuesday’s Pendleton Heights boys cross country sectional meet battled each other on the same course seven weeks prior.

That day, Pendleton Heights bested Mount Vernon, but the most recent round went to the Marauders who captured the sectional title by 12 points over the Arabians.

“It is good to look at,” Pendleton Heights coach Alan Holden said of hosting a regular season meet with teams the Arabians will face in postseason tournaments. “It is a good key. Mt. Vernon is always our opponent, and that is who we have to look at all the time. That is who we have been fighting for the last couple of years.”

Mount Vernon tallied 44 points and Pendleton Heights 56.

Much like Pendleton’s girls, the boys team relied on youth to propel the Arabians. Three of their top four finishers are sophomores. The other is Parker Jones, who is a freshman.

“Try to go out there and get Mount Vernon,” Jones said of his strategy. “Just run as fast as you can. For some people it is to keep a pace, but my philosophy is to just to go out there and give it your all.”

Twin brothers Tyler and Tony Flood to give the Arabians three in the top 10 joining Jones. Tyler took second with a time of 17 minutes, 11.06 seconds, and Tony crossed the finish line in 17:24.01 for fifth place.

The difference between Pendleton Heights earning a sectional title and being the runner-up team was Mt. Vernon having its third, fourth and fifth runners place 12th, 13th and 14th compared to the Arabians taking seventh, 19th and 23rd.

“We were a little short today,” Holden said. “(Eli Young) was not able to run today. We thought it would be better for him to run in the regional. So we kept him out because of an ankle injury.”
