Cassopolis advances boys team, Anderson to Division 4 regional

DECATUR — The Cassopolis boys cross country team finished second at the Division 4 Pre-Regional meet hosted by Decatur on Wednesday.

The Rangers advance as a team to the regional being hosted by Portage Central on Oct. 30. Cassopolis also advanced Lauren Anderson and Alexis Millirans to the girls regional after they finished second and sixth, respectively.

Lawrence edged Cassopolis 31-37 to win the boys pre-regional title. Eau Claire was third with 75 points, and Marcellus fourth with 84.

Robert Ward led the Rangers with a third-place overall finish and a time of 18:38. Cole Millirans was fifth (18:56), William Westphal seventh (19:19) and Aiden Ward 10th (19:57).

“Getting to the meet, it turned into a great running weather,” said Cassopolis coach Ty Sheteron. “Everyone was focused on why needed to be done. They all set goals. They picked someone to beat and stuck to it. Everyone hit their times on the first mile mark. Some were ahead of their set times. The course had a long finish, and Cass fought hard for just one more place or a new PR or season record.”

Anderson ran a time of 21:22 to grab the runner-up spot in the girl’s race. Alexis Millirans posted a time of 24:19.
