Stars finish 24th in crowded Tiger Run

BNL’s Jonah Bailey was 76th during the 30-team Tiger Run in Louisville on Saturday.

LOUISVILLE – Bedford North Lawrence finished 24th among a 30-team field in the annual Tiger Run, hosted by Louisville St. Xavier, during boys cross country action on Saturday.

The Stars totaled 685 points. St. Xavier won the meet with 92 points, followed by CYK Homeschool (208) and Floyd Central (211).

In a crowded field of 260 runners, BNL’s Jonah Bailey was 76th in 17:44.26. Alex Nicholson was 145th in 19:03.29.

“The Tiger Run was the largest race we have competed in so far this year,” BNL coach Nick Boyd said. “The experience of running a large invitational will be helpful to build on as we continue to progress.

“Jonah ran a season-best time, which was nearly one minute faster than his race at the Tiger Run last year. Jonah’s times keep dropping and I expect to see the trend continue. Alex ran a season-best as well. He keeps putting together consistent races as a product of working hard, day in and day out, in practice.”

Chase Turner (212th in 21:01.65), Lawson Grissom (216th in 21:08.88) and Max Klein (219th in 21:26.78) completed the BNL scoring.

Cooper Wasson of Bluegrass Homeschool won the race in 15:03.39.

The Stars will compete in the Rick Weinheimer Classic at Ceraland Park in Columbus on Sept. 3.
