Anna Rohrer-A Star is Born?
Lavern Gibson CCC, Terre Haute, IN, 10-27,
Carmel swept the boys and girls team titles in Terre Haute but Mishawaka's Anna Rohrer was the talk of the day, setting a girls state finals record, while Barr-Reeve's Connor Sorrells took the boys crown.
Rohrer, just a sophomore, battled defending state champion Ashley Erba throughout but then pulled away from the Warsaw senior down the final straightaway.
Rohrer, on the sideline last year with four broken bones in her foot, crossed the line in 17:13.2, destroying the state finals record set by Erba last year in 18:05.6. Erba finished as the runner-up here in 17:29.2.
In the boys race, Zach Panning of Fort Wayne Concordia moved out to a sizeable lead through the first 3,000 meters but Sorrells caught him and pulled away late to win in 15:21.3. The Barr-Reeve senior became the first runner from his school to win a cross country state title.
