Crothersville junior Kaylyn Holman continued to dominate the small-school Indiana high school cross-country running season with another major victory this week.
Holman won the Eastern Invitational in Pekin on Tuesday, covering the 5 kilometer course in 20 minutes, 28 seconds, adding to her 2020 haul of hardware.
She previously bested the fields at the Salem Invitational at the end of August and the Scottsburg Invitational earlier this month.
On Tuesday, she crossed the finish line more than a minute ahead of second-place Kayle Magallanes of Borden, whose time was 21:29.
Although the Tigers did not have enough runners for a team score, Ella Plasse placed 19th in 25:34, and Kiarra Lakins took 22nd in 25:50.
Twelve teams in all were represented in the girls race, including Brownstown Central, which placed fifth as a group. The Braves’ scorers were Jazzlynn Yeadon (29th, 27:58), Tori Lokey (30th, 28:23), Karcyn Trueblood (38th, 31:41), Camryn Thompson, (40th, 32:13) and Brooklyn Isaacs (43rd, 36:00).
The Brownstown boys were led by Nathan Koch (16th in 18:55) and finished fifth out of 15 teams that had entries. Cameron Day (28th, 20:03), Traven Wellman (35th, 20:39), Bradley Edwards (36th, 20:47), Andrew Wheeles (38th, 20:49) Waylon Lutes (41st, 21:00) and Aaron Fernandez (44th, 21:26) also ran for the Braves.
Crothersville did not have a team score. Elijah Plasse took sixth place overall in 17:41 with David Rose close behind in seventh at 17:46.
Teammates Andrew Stainbrook (67th in 31:03) and Tim Hodge (68th, also in 31:03) followed.

Sydney Jaynes (12), Kennedy Hoffman (11) and Bailey Reynolds (7) led the way in the kills department with Jaynes and Bailey Tabeling making 3 blocks each and Reynolds making two.
Excellent serving also kept Southwestern off-balance, with Kamzi Gross collecting 5 aces, Ruthie Bingham, Stella Kleffman and Reynolds delivering 3 aces apiece. Bingham had 12 digs, Reynolds 9 and Gross 6.
Reynolds also contributed 19 set assists and Bingham 16.
Crothersville volleyball back in action
After two weeks off in the middle of the schedule, partially because opponents cancelled games as an offshoot of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crothersville dropped a 25-7, 25-11, 25-15 match to Rock Creek Tuesday.
Top serving could not quite lift the Tigers to the victory, with Kennadi Lakins Makenna Newberry each going 5 for 5. Pearl Shirley notched 4 kills.
