Boys Race

DUNLAP — Northridge junior Blake O’Dell won the individual boys sectional cross country championship, leading the Raiders to the team title Tuesday night at Ox Bow County Park.

O’Dell covered the 5,000 meters in 16:12, finishing ahead of his sophomore teammate James Bradberry (second in 16:15).

“I knew the race was probably going to come down to either me or James winning,” O’Dell said. “I think I wanted it a little bit more. This is my junior year and I’m not going to have too many more chances.

“The plan was to set a fast pace over the first 1K, then keep it up and even try to pick it up a little bit more. We picked it up around the 2K mark and then again around the 4K. The wind made it a little tougher, especially at the start and the finish.”

Northridge posted a team score of 30 points. Goshen was second at 52, followed by Wawasee 93, Elkhart Central 117, Concord 136, Fairfield 168, NorthWood 187, Elkhart Memorial 244, Elkhart Christian Academy 245, Jimtown 298 and Bethany Christian 331.

The top five teams and top 15 individual runners advance to the regional on Saturday, also at Ox Bow. The boys race begins at 10 a.m.

“This was a big win for the guys,” Northridge coach Ryan McClane said. “We needed a win like this. All season we have been finishing behind Warsaw or a team like them. Now with Warsaw being moved out of the sectional it gave our guys a chance.”

McClane credited assistant coach Sam Miller for being an inspiration to the team.

“We have these banners hanging in the gym with the years when teams won either a conference title or a title in the state tournament,” McClane said. “Sam was the one that told the kids this was their opportunity to hang a number up there and they went out and did it.”

Also for the Raiders, senior Jacob Frost was sixth (16:45), sophomore Luke Riffel 10th (17:05) and freshman Conner Sandt 11th (17:06).

Senior Luke Kaufman placed fourth (16:36) to lead the Goshen Redskins. Senior Reid Zimmeman was seventh (16:52), senior Josh Abbs eighth (17:00), senior Adam Weeden 15th (17:13) and sophomore Shawn Graves 18th (17:20).

“We ran well. The pack tighten up a little bit more,” Goshen coach Mike Wynn said. “There is still room for improvement. Our goal tonight was to get a little closer to Northridge. The Raiders are the power in the area.

“It was quite a feat for us to get four runners in the top 15 finishers.”

McClane doesn’t like the sectional being held on Tuesday night.

“We had a good night considering the fact that we were off for 10 days,” McClane said.

Northridge’s last meet was the NLC on Sept. 29.

“The 10 days off doesn’t bother me as much as the sectional being held on Tuesday,” the coach said. “All season long our focus is on running on Saturdays. On Tuesday you are adding the stress of school. We don’t get out of school until 4 p.m. so by the time we get here the girls had about 15 minutes until they had to start warming up.”
