PRINCETON — Parker Mullins and Trevor Robbins earned all-Big Eight Conference accolades, leading Lincoln's boys cross country team to a second-place finish in the league meet Saturday.
Jasper, the only southwestern Indiana team ranked in the state at No. 15, rolled to victory with 18. Lincoln scored 57, Washington 86, Princeton 91 and Mount Vernon 122.
Mullins took sixth in 16:37 and Robbins ninth in 16:46. Blake Meade was 12th, 16:49; Keenan Clegg 14th, 17:02; and Nate Harris 16th, 17:31.
"It was nice that Princeton honored all of the seniors as the Big Eight disbands. Mullins, Robbins and Evan McGuire were honored, and they've been great leaders. They are also expected to do their share of heavy lifting during the postseason," Alices coach Craig Klitz said.
Mount Vernon edged Jasper, 36-37, for the girls title. Princeton 59 and Lincoln 98 were the only other schools with team scores.
Gracie Kramer led the Lady Alices in 16th at 23:00. Alexus Arvin was 18th, 23:45; Sierra Mullins 19th, 24:15; Jasmine Anderson 28th, 28:34; Jayda Hovland 29th, 30:17; and Mackenzie Taylor 30th, 49:12.
"We had everybody running, so it was good to have a full team. We have never run on that course before, but our times were pretty good for us," Lincoln coach Ralph Connor said.
The Alices run at 10 a.m. next Saturday in the South Knox Sectional.
