TERRE HAUTE —
Today’s Bloomington North Early Bird Meet at the Gibson course is first on the Braves’ schedule.
• West Vigo — Season No. 33 has started for coach Bill Petscher, whose squad lost to Greencastle 25-33 on Tuesday and won at Sullivan 20-39 on Thursday.
Junior Jonah Eckert appears ready to continue his role as the Vikings’ No. 1 runner.
Other returnees expected to contribute are senior Blake Benefiel, who doubles as a tennis player in the fall; juniors Austin Romanelly, Davin Donnelly and Zac Otte; and sophomores Jacob Weir, Clayton O’Neal, Trevor Roskovensky and Caleb Likens.
Petscher named a few newcomers — senior Tyler Tolerson, sophomore Cody Rumple and freshmen Brian Becker and Brady Cage — as others who may make an impact.
“I think this team has great potential once we get everyone running together,” the veteran coach said. “I think we’ll be very competitive by the end of the season.”
West Vigo will run again Sept. 7 in the State Preview Meet at the Gibson course.
