at Saturday’s New Prairie Semistate.
Lauren Johnson, Kristen Johnson and Delaney Barber finishing second,
third and fourth respectively, the Red Devils girls tied a semistate
record by scoring 32 points and claiming their third consecutive New
Prairie championship. LaPorte was a distant second with 116 points.
Central also scored 32 points in 2007.
could have scored all seven of our girls and still won against
everybody else’s five,” West Lafayette coach Steve Lewark said.
“Lauren, Kristen and Delaney ran fantastic today. It was not a good
day to run, very windy and a little on the cold side. The course was
not in fantastic shape because of recent rains.”
