Perkins finishes second, advances to state finals

NASHVILLE — Barr-Reeve’s Jarit Perkins got his ticket to the IHSAA Cross Country State Championship stamped Saturday after placing second at the Brown County Semistate at Eagle Park just outside of Nashville.

Perkins, a sophomore, finished the course in 15:37 and just behind Terre Haute South senior Jackson Bertoli (15:29). Bertoli finished fourth in the State Championship meet last year.

While Perkins will be the only area runner competing at State, several other area runners ended their year at Brown County. Washington senior K.C. Heller finished 34th Saturday, shaving over 20 seconds from his time posted at the Pike Central Regional while his teammate, senior Austin Gray, finished 115th.

Sam Baker, a senior from Washington Catholic was 54th and dropped 31 seconds off his regional time. Baker’s time of 16:57 was his best time in his high school career and was named to All-Conference in the Blue Chip. Emily Schultheis, a freshman from Barr-Reeve and Brandy White, a junior from Washington, competed on the girl’s side. Schulthies finished 55th overall (20:29) and cut seven seconds off her regional time. White finished 136th (21:51).

“While she did not advance to the state finals, we are well pleased with her rewarding season,” B-R girls coach Leslie Graber said.

Graber said Schultheis had a stellar freshman year, including the first semistate appearance for a Viking girl runner and an individual Blue Chip Conference title.

“She has represented Barr-Reeve, her family and her community with stellar performance and we are all extremely proud of her,” Graber said.

The Lavern Gibson Course in Terre Haute will be the home for the Cross Country State Championships Saturday. Perkins, competing for the first time at state, should be ranked in the top five based on the semistate results and has a shot at bringing the state individual championship back to Barr-Reeve for the second year in a row. Last year, senior Connor Sorrells took home the top honor. The boy’s race will start at 1 p.m. Tickets for the event are $8 per person.
