Heritage High School had its best finish ever at the Bellmont Sectional this year. We are advancing 9 athletes on to the Marion Regional. The boys team had their best finish with a place of 3rd out of the 12 teams. The entire team will advance to the Marion Regional with the goal of moving on to the New Haven Semi-State. The members of the team are Devin Schemenk (12th place), Jack Beauchot (18th), Jeremiah Farmer, Corey Foster, Andrew Kohrman, Jacob Anderson, and Niklaus Smith.
The girls team had their best finish also. They came in 6th out of 12 teams. They were just 5 points away from advancing as a team. Two girls were able to advance as individual runners. Rylee Jarrell ran a PR time of 22:32 to advance, and Lilly Biggins placed 14th overall with a PR time of 21:36 to also advance. Lilly was also able to set a new school record with her time. Both girls are working to set a new PR at the Marion Regional with the goal to move on to the New Haven Semi-State.
The regional is set for Saturday in Marion.
