BNL boys finish 3rd,
girls fourth during
the BNL Invitational
By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence boys coach Scott Hiles didn’t know what he had in this trial run. Girls coach Jill Vance knew her team was better than it showed during its first event. Both were satisfied with the results during the annual BNL Invitational on Monday afternoon.
The Stars, with a herd of freshmen making their varsity debuts, finished third in the seven-team field with 96 points in the boys meet, while the BNL girls shook off the discouragement of Saturday’s sloppy tour through the rain and muck to finish fourth in drier, more favorable conditions.
Jennings County won the boys meet with 25 points, while Seymour swept aside everyone, claiming the top six spots in the girls meet to record a perfect score of 15 and take the title.
In the boys race, BNL senior Trey Pemberton was seventh in 17:47.4, and his younger brother Chance was 18th (despite falling on the first lap during the double tour of the BNL course) in 18:57.2.
