A light drizzle dampened the course at the Tippecanoe Amphitheater just before Tuesday’s cross country sectional, but it did little to slow down the West Lafayette Red Devils.
Led by a pair of victorious sophomores, West Lafayette swept the boys and girls sectional titles for the third time in four years.
“This is my favorite weather, where it’s drizzling a little bit and there is no sun beating down on you,” said WL junior Logan Berndt, who finished ninth.
Unchallenged, the third-ranked West Side girls won their fourth straight sectional, posting a perfect score by taking the top five spots. Sophomore twins Lauren and Kristen Johnson finished 1-2, finishing side by side in 18:55.
