BNL girls finish 10th,
Stars fail to advance
individuals to semistate
By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence’s postseason run ended without team or personal glory during Saturday’s regional races.
The Stars finished 10th in the field during the girls race, and couldn’t land any individuals on the qualifying list for next week’s semistate at Brown County. The BNL boys, with four runners competing as individuals, also failed to advance to the third round of the state tournament series.
In the girls meet, BNL scored 246 points. No.7 Bloomington North won the team title with 33 points while No.21 Bloomington South was second with 49. The top five teams among the 10 in the meet, plus the top 15 individuals who were not members of advancing teams, qualified for the semistate.
The Stars, who pointed their training toward last week’s sectional race, couldn’t come back with much energy against higher-level competition.
