Corydon Central's Levi Taylor and North Harrison's Ashton Bosler raced their way to individual titles at the Mid-Southern Conference Meet last Tuesday, hosted by Silver Creek.

In the boys' race, the battle between Taylor and North Harrison's Jonathan Reynolds continues. This time around, Taylor beat out his counterpart by six seconds, running in 16:02.
Within the team standings, Reynolds and the Cougars came out on top by the slimmest of margins. North Harrison placed first with 44 points, followed by Silver Creek with 45. Corydon Central finished fourth with 115 points.
Reynolds' second-place effort in 16:08 was followed by teammate Daniel Fleace, who came in third with a time of 16:55.
The Cougar pack of Curtis Wetzel (18:00), Tyler Hood (18:01) and Andrew Robertson (18:03) took the 12th through 14th spots.

North Harrison's Hayley Elliot landed a 10th-place finish in 22:26, while teammate Shelby Lindsey (22:57) finished 15th.
