Girls Coordinator

Honorable mention: Kieran Casey, Perry Meridian; Jenna Halderman, Northfield; Olivia Hippensteel, Fort Wayne Carroll; Marina Konow, Fort Wayne Concordia; Maria Mehringer, Evansville Memorial; Olivia Pottschmidt, Penn; Nikki Thiede, Terre Haute South.

1. Ashley Erba – senior – Warsaw

 

 

State Meet History: 1st in ’11 (18:05)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Elkhart Central Sectional (18:25), 1st in Elkhart Central Regional (18:10), 1st in New Haven Semi-State (18:07), 1st in IHSAA State Finals (18:05).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in Warsaw Sectional 1600 (4:57), 1st in Warsaw Sectional 3200 (10:31), 2nd in Warsaw Regional 1600 (4:55), 1st in Warsaw Regional 3200 (10:33), 1st in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:25).

 

Outlook: Predictably enough, the defending state champion enters the season ranked atop the list. Erba was undefeated in IHSAA competition last fall, culminating in her dominating win at the state finals. She was defeated a handful of times in the 1600 in the spring, mainly to eventual state champion Bethany Neeley of Eastern. Still, her distance prowess is without equal currently in Indiana as her 10:24.94 ranks fourth best in Indiana all-time and her 16:21 5k victory at the New Balance Outdoor National meet is sixth in U.S. history.  Certainly, the cross country season is not a foregone conclusion, but it looks to take a monumental effort to dethrone the current champ.

2. Kelcy Welch – junior – Carmel

 

 

State Meet History: 49th in ’10 (19:34), 5th in ’11 (18:31)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 4th in Carmel Semi-State (18:37), 5th in IHSAA State Finals (18:31).

2012 Track Tournament: 3rd in Guerin Sectional 3200 (11:08), 3rd in West Lafayette Regional 3200 (11:03), 5th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:47).

 

Outlook: Welch made a name for herself by winning the Culver Invitational as a sophomore last year. In between that race and late October, she was absent from race results. Despite that hiatus, she was able to come back and finish fifth at the state meet. Factoring in the jump she made from freshman to sophomore year, a completely healthy Welch may be a tough opponent for anyone to beat. Due to her team’s depth, she was able to concentrate on just the 3200 last spring and finished fifth at the state finals there as well.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

3. Bobbie Burgess – senior – West Lafayette

 

 

State Meet History: 68th in ’10 (19:53), 3rd in ’11 (18:21)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Harrison (West Lafayette) Sectional (18:20), 1st in Harrison (West Lafayette) Regional (18:26), 1st in New Prairie Semi-State (18:22), 3rd in IHSAA State Finals (18:21).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in Harrison (West Lafayette) Sectional 1600 (5:20), 1st in Harrison (West Lafayette Sectional 3200 (11:14), 7th in West Lafayette Regional 1600 (5:15), 4th in West Lafayette Regional 3200 (11:13), 7th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:49).

 

Outlook: Burgess burst onto the scene as a dominating frontrunner last year after serving as a solid scorer for West Lafayette the year before. Results show her to be incredibly consistent and unphased by the big meets, where she tends to run her best. Burgess was beaten only once in the cross country tournament last year, that being when she finished third at the state meet. Her fearless track tournament led her to attempt the 1600/3200 double, though she was the main beneficiary of her failed attempt to qualify for the state meet in the 1600 when she dropped 24 seconds by running the 3200 fresh at the state finals.

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

4. MacKenzie Caldwell – junior – Columbus North

 

 

State Meet History: 41st in ’10 (19:25), 4th in ’11 (18:26)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Franklin Sectional (18:26), 2nd in Greensburg Regional (18:31), 2nd in Carmel Semi-State (18:19), 4th in IHSAA State Finals (18:26).

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in Franklin Sectional 1600 ( 5:15), 1st in Franklin Sectional 3200 (11:04), 1st in Shelbyville Regional 3200 (11:08), 6th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:47).

 

Outlook: Caldwell had a big moment in the semi-state last year when she decided to take the lead and attempted to run away from a field full of All-State runners and state champion hopefuls. She eventually finished second in that race and went on to cement her status among the best in Indiana with a fourth place finish at the state meet the next week. Caldwell’s sophomore improvements continued in track as she ran a leg on North’s tenth place 4×8 relay before running one of the 30 best 3200 meter times in Indiana history. Another round of improvement, which is common among Columbus North frontrunners, could have her contending for the individual title.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

5. Rachel Nichwitz – sophomore – Hamilton Southeastern

 

 

State Meet History: 6th in ’11 (18:35)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 4th in Noblesville Sectional (18:34), 9th in Brebeuf Regional (18:49), 9th in Carmel Semi-State (18:53), 6th in IHSAA State Finals (18:35)

2012 Track Tournament: 3rd in Guerin Sectional 800 (2:19), 2nd in Guerin Sectional 1600 (5:04), 3rd in West Lafayette Regional 800 (2:17), 1st in West Lafayette Regional 1600 (4:58), 8th in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (5:02).

 

Outlook: Nichwitz was a highly-touted freshman who didn’t disappoint in her rookie campaign last year. She then took the track season to solidify herself among the very top of Indiana distance runners. Along the cross country season, Nichwitz had some good showdowns against other top freshmen but was the best ninth-grade at the state meet and fifth best returner. In the spring, she anchored the Royals 4×8 to some big victories along with qualifying for the state meet in the 800 and 1600 as an individual.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

6. Abby Hostetler – junior – Fremont

 

 

State Meet History: 31st in ’10 (19:10), 15th in ’11 (18:49)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in West Noble Sectional (19:21), 2nd in West Noble Regional (19:08), 8th in New Haven Semi-State (19:01), 15th in IHSAA State Finals (18:49).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in East Noble 1600 (5:05), 1st in East Noble 3200 (11:12), 1st in Fort Wayne Northrop Regional (5:01), 1st in Fort Wayne Northrop Regional (11:01), 2nd in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (4:57), 11th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:55).

 

Outlook: Hostetler has been among the state’s best since coming in as a freshman and has improved quite a bit each season along the way. As a freshman she was 11th in the 1600 and 8th in the 3200. This past track season she was the state runner-up in the 1600 and nearly came back to medal in the 3200 in a much faster time than the year before. Another steady improvement could have her contending for the state title this fall.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

7. Samantha Roush – junior – Columbia City

 

 

State Meet History: 12th in ’10 (18:47), 7th in ’11 (18:35)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Marion Sectional (18:46), 1st in Marion Regional (18:11), 2nd in New Haven Semi-State (18:38), 7th in IHSAA State Finals (18:35).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in Bluffton Sectional 800 (2:24), 1st in Bluffton Sectional 1600 (5:18), 2nd in Fort Wayne Northrop 1600 Regional (5:04), 10th in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (5:03).

 

Outlook: Roush has twice finished very high at the state finals as a freshman and sophomore. Typically, Roush has had better cross country seasons than track, though she has twice finished tenth in the 1600. This year her time proved to 5:03. Last year’s  state meets was very underclassmen-laden so Roush is the sixth returner despite having finished seventh. With Warsaw moving to the New Prairie Semi-State, Roush does appear to be the favorite to win the northeast semi-state.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

8. Kendra Foley – senior – Noblesville

 

 

State Meet History: 13th in ’09 (19:52), 15th in ’10 (18:49), 8th in ’11 (18:36)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 5th in Noblesville Sectional (18:45), 4th in Brebeuf Regional (18:26), 6th in Carmel Semi-State (18:41), 8th in IHSAA State Finals (18:36).

2012 Track Tournament: 4th in Guerin Sectional 3200 (11:16), 6th in West Lafayette Regional 3200 (11:15), 12th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:59).

 

Outlook: Foley is one of the most talented runners in Indiana, demonstrated by the three individual medals that she has earned over the last three years of cross country. On top of being among the state’s elite, Foley has had a knack for running her best races of the season at the state meet, including running a 15 second PR at the state track meet in the 3200. Foley does lose a great training partner to graduation in Helen Willman but will now be the sole star runner for the Millers.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

9. Victoria Schoettmer – senior – Center Grove

 

 

State Meet History: 17th in ’09 (19:55), 18th in ’10 (18:55), 19th in ’11 (18:53)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 14th in Carmel Semi-State (19:05), 19th in IHSAA State Finals (18:53).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in Franklin Sectional 1600 (5:09), 2nd in Franklin Sectional 3200 (11:15), 1st in Shelbyville Regional 1600 (5:10), 2nd in Shelbyville Regional 3200 (11:18), 5th in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (5:00), 8th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:50).

 

Outlook: Schoettmer has been All-State three time in her career. She even achieved that last year after an injury later in that season that kept her out of the sectional and regional. A healthy season by Schoettmer could have her among the very elite in Indiana as demonstrated by her track performance this season where she was a double medalist for the second year in a row. In fact, Schoettmer has been All-State in the 800, 1600 and 3200 over the past couple of years.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

10. Corinne Cominator – senior – Northridge

 

 

State Meet History: 135th in ’09 (22:09), 56th in ’11 (19:37)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 3rd in Elkhart Central Sectional (19:44), 3rd in Elkhart Central Regional (19:16), 19th in New Haven Semi-State (19:37), 56th in IHSAA State Finals (19:37)

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in Warsaw Sectional 1600 (5:07), 2nd in Warsaw Sectional 3200 (11:25), 3rd in Warsaw Regional 1600 (5:05), 2nd in Warsaw Regional 3200 (11:06), 3rd in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (4:57), 4th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (10:46).

 

Outlook: Cominator is ranked this high almost solely on her track success from this spring when she finished third in the 1600 and fourth in the 3200 at the state meet. In the past, she has been a solid contributor on a good team but has yet to finish in the top 15 at the semi-state level of cross country. Still, she has run one of the 15 best 3200 performances ever, and that has to translate to the grass somewhat. How much remains to be seen.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

11. Chanli Mundy – senior – Terre Haute North

 

 

State Meet History: 45th in ’09 (20:36), 16th in ’10 (18:52), 9th in ’11 (18:38)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Terre Haute North Sectional (19:19), 1st in Brown County Regional (18:41), 1st in Brown County Semi-State (18:30), 9th in IHSAA State Finals (18:38).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in South Putnam Sectional 3200 (11:23), 1st in Evansville Central Regional 3200 (11:08), 31st in IHSAA State Finals (11:37)

 

Outlook: Mundy has steadily improved since being one of the state’s best freshman three years ago. That culminated in a ninth place finish at last year’s cross country state meet, following an undefeated tournament up to that point. Mundy easily earned the title of the south’s best runner, but she will get some new competition with Columbus North’s move to the south. Though she didn’t run very well at the state track meet, she did have an 11:05 to her credit before the tournament.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

12. Bethany Neeley – senior – Eastern (Greentown)

 

 

State Meet History: 45th in ’10 (19:31), 30th in ’11 (19:13)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Logansport Sectional (20:18), 1st in Culver Academies Regional (19:14), 2nd in New Prairie Semi-State (18:34), 30th in ’11 (19:13).

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in Madison-Grant Sectional 800 (2:32), 1st in Madison-Grant Sectional 1600 (5:42), 7th in Warsaw 800 (2:22), 1st in Warsaw 1600 (4:53), 1st in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (4:54)

 

Outlook: Neeley didn’t run her best cross country race at the state meet, but she did beat many of the state’s best at the semi-state the week before. She also proved to be among the state’s best by winning the state championship in the 1600 and beating defending cross country champion Ashley Erba in the regional 1600. If she can translate her track success to the grass—and last year’s semi-state performance indicates that she can—she may be a threat to Erba again.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

13. Gina Genco – junior – Carmel

 

 

State Meet History: 22nd in ’10 (19:04), 13th in ’11 (18:46)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 2nd in Noblesville Sectional (18:23), 13th in IHSAA State Finals (18:46).

2012 Track Tournament: 4th in Guerin Sectional 800 (2:20), 5th in West Lafayette Regional 800 (2:22).

 

Outlook: Genco has

twice been All-State and twice run on the state championship team in her first two years. Already among the tops in the state, the pressure will now be on her to lead the team after serving as a secondary scorer previously. Due to Carmel’s depth, Genco’s track results are somewhat inconclusive. She did advance out of a loaded sectional in the open 800 and served as the alternate on the state championship 4×8, but that typically has little bearing on the much longer race on grass.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

14. Madison Woods – sophomore – Penn

 

 

State Meet History: 10th in ’11 (18:39)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in South Bend Riley Sectional (19:33), 8th in Elkhart Central Regional (19:34), 3rd in New Haven Semi-State (18:46), 10th in IHSAA State Finals (18:39)

2012 Track Tournament: None.

 

Outlook: Woods results prior to the state meet illustrated a lot of talent and perhaps an outside chance to finish All-State. Then she ran her best race of the season—and by extension, her high school career—at the state finals. She won her sectional in a good but not elite time and finished high up in her semi-state, but nothing would have indicated she could finish in the top ten at the state finals. Woods is the ninth returner and was the second best freshman at last year’s state meets. Curiously, she does not have any track tournament results.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

15. Elena Lancioni – junior – LaPorte

 

 

State Meet History: 28th in ’10 (19:12), 21st in ’11 (18:55)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 3rd in Chesterton Sectional (19:13), 2nd in New Prairie Regional (19:01), 3rd in New Prairie Semi-State (18:39), 21st in IHSAA State Finals (18:55).

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in Chesterton Sectional 1600 (5:10), 1st in Chesterton Sectional 3200 (11:35), 2nd in Chesterton Regional 3200 (11:15), 15th in IHSAA State Finals (11:03).

 

Outlook: Lancioni is right on the bubble of becoming one of the very elite in Indiana. She has been a borderline All-State athlete since arriving in high school and achieved that last year at the cross country state meet. If the track season is any indication, Lancioni has been steadily improving since her freshman year where she finished 28th at the state finals. Based on state meet results, Lancioni is the 14th returner in cross country 9th returner in the 3200.

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

16. Becca Conley – senior – Andrean

 

 

State Meet History: 14th in ’11 (18:47)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Crown Point Sectional (19:13), 2nd in Crown Point Regional (19:05), 6th in New Prairie Semi-State (18:41), 14th in IHSAA State Finals (18:47)

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in Lowell Sectional 1600 (11:33), 4th in Chesterton Regional 3200 (11:21).

 

Outlook: After falling short the previous two years, Conley qualified for her first state finals last season and ran the race of her life to finish with a medal. Like many runners on this list, Conley is in a pretty loaded area of the state and gets a chance to see good competition throughout the tournament. Conley should have some extra motivation after coming up just less than four-tenths of a second short of qualifying for the state meet in the 3200 this spring.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

17. Ericka Rinehart – senior – Angola

 

 

State Meet History: 59th in ’10 (19:48), 22nd in ’11 (18:56)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 2nd in West Noble Sectional (19:32), 3rd in West Noble Regional (19:13), 6th in New Haven Semi-State (18:59), 22nd in IHSAA State Finals (18:56).

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in East Noble Sectional 1600 (5:24), 3rd in East Noble Sectional 3200 (11:50), 2nd in Fort Wayne Northrop Regional 3200 (11:15), 21st in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (11:14).

 

Outlook: Rinehart made a leap by qualifying for the state finals as a sophomore then another last one by finishing All-State as a junior. Her track results appear to show an athlete still improving as she qualified for the state finals in the 3200 and ran 11:14 in the incredibly deep field at the state meet. Rinehart is in an area of the state rich in talent. Two athletes in her sectional are on this list and many teams in the preseason top 50.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

18. Rachael Sollman – senior – Columbus North

 

 

State Meet History: 41st in ’09 (20:33), 17th in ’10 (18:54), 25th in ’11 (19:00)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 2nd in Franklin Sectional (19:03), 1st in Greensburg Regional (18:30), 10th in Carmel Semi-State (18:53), 25th in IHSAA State Finals (19:00).

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in Franklin Sectional 800 (2:19), 5th in Shelbyville Regional 800 (2:23).

 

Outlook: Sollman has been a constant on the great Columbus North teams over the last three years, twice finishing All-State.  A good senior year could have Sollman finishing very high up at the state finals. With the Dogs concentrating on the 4×8 relay in the tournament, Sollman’s track results weren’t spectacular, but she has finished as high as fourth in the state meet 1600 and qualified for the state meet individually on many occasions among cross and track.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

19. Taylor Austin – senior – Griffith

 

 

State Meet History: 35th in ’09 (20:23), 24th in ’11 (18:56)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Hammond Gavit Sectional (19:26), 2nd in Crown Point Regional (19:16), 7th in New Prairie Regional (18:44), 24th in IHSAA State Finals (18:56).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in Lowell Sectional 1600 (5:25), 4th in Lowell Sectional 3200 (12:02), 4th in Chesterton Regional 1600 (5:18), 6th in Chesterton Regional 3200 (11:36), 25th in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (5:29).

 

Outlook: Austin earned her first All-State honors last fall after running her best races in the semi-state and state meets. She also qualified individually as a freshman but just missed as a sophomore at the semi-state. In the track season, Austin didn’t see as much competition throughout the season but was able to advance to the state meet in the 1600 after a scratch in the regional.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

20. Malyka Abramson – sophomore – Avon



 

State Meet History: 98th in ’11 (20:17)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in South Putnam Sectional (19:03), 2nd in Ben Davis Regional (18:39), 8th in Carmel Semi-State (18:52), 98th in IHSAA State Finals (20:17).

2012 Track Tournament: 3rd in Plainfield Sectional 1600 (5:22), 6th in West Lafayette Regional 1600 (5:16), 17th in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (5:13).

 

Outlook: Abramson struggled through an injury at the state meet last year as a freshman but had many races that displayed her potential to be All-State before that. She had many duels with HSE sophomore Rachel Nichwitz last year, often getting the better of her. In the track season, Abramson dipped under the standard in the 3200 before taking her chances in the 1600 in the tournament, where she eventually qualified for the state finals via callback and ran 5:13.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

 

21. Anna Bearss – junior – Rochester

 

 

 

State Meet History: 42nd in ’10 (19:27), 23rd in ’11 (18:56)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 2nd in Elkhart Central Sectional (19:13), 2nd in Elkhart Central Regional (18:59), 12th in New Haven Semi-State (19:16), 23rd in IHSAA State Finals (18:56).

2012 Track Tournament: 4th in Warsaw Sectional 3200 (11:44), 9th in Warsaw Regional 3200 (12:07)

 

Outlook: Bearss has twice finished high enough at the semi-state to qualify for the state cross country meet as an individual, though her team joined her last year. Last season, she ran fast enough to achieve All-State honors, one of two from her team to do so. Bearss is the 16th returner from state meet results but has transferred to another school for this year. In comparison to her cross country success, her track exploits weren’t phenomenal, but a healthy season of training could make her tough to beat.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

22. Allison Rollins – sophomore – Evansville North

 

 

State Meet History: 27th in ‘11 (19:03)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 2nd in Evansville Mater Dei Sectional (19:30), 2nd in Pike Central Regional (18:58), 2nd in Brown County Semi-State (18:33), 27th in IHSAA State Finals (19:03)

2012 Track Tournament: 4th in Mount Vernon Sectional 1600 (5:37), 5th in Evansville Central Regional 1600 (5:25)

 

Outlook: Rollins had a great tournament, culminating in finishing second at the semi-state and nearly finishing All-State in Terre Haute. Her track results were not spectacular, but perhaps Rollins is better suited for the grass. Rollins should see good competition with Evansville Memorial’s Maria Mehringer, who beat her at the sectional and regional last year.

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

23. Sienna Crews – Sophomore – Heritage Hills

 

 

State Meet History: 26th in ‘11 (19:01)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 1st in Jasper Sectional (20:27), 2nd in Crawford County (19:14), 5th in Brown County Semi-State (18:50), 26th in IHSAA State Finals (19:01).

2012 Track Tournament: 1st in Perry Central Sectional 1600 (5:26), 1st in Perry Central Sectional 3200 (11:53), 2nd in Evansville Central Regional 1600 (5:07), 12th in IHSAA State Finals 1600 (5:07).

 

Outlook: Crews was an agonizing four-tenths of a second from finishing All-State last year. Nevertheless, she will have three more chances. Crews ran her best race at the state finals by far. On top of her cross country success, she also made the state track meet in the 1600 and was only a few spots away from finishing All-State there. One of Crews’ biggest challenges will be finding competition throughout the season before the state meets.

 

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

24. Anna Aldrich – Senior – Fremont

 

 

State Meet History: 81st in ’10 (19:59), 34th in ’11 (19:14)

2011 Cross Country Tournament: 3rd in West Noble Sectional (19:49), 6th in West Noble Regional (19:37), 10th in New Haven Semi-State (19:09), 34th in IHSAA State Finals (19:14).

2012 Track Tournament: 2nd in East Noble Sectional 3200 (11:32), 3rd in Fort Wayne Northrop Regional 3200 (11:17), 16th in IHSAA State Finals 3200 (11:04).

 

Outlook: Aldrich has twice qualified for the cross country state finals as an individual. She is also the 24th returner based on state meet results from last season. Aldrich may have turned the corner with her track season after running 11:04 at the state track meet. On top of last year’s success and the extra motivation of a senior year, Aldrich will also get to train with one of the state’s best as her teammate appears even higher on the list.

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

 

25. Grace Lachmund – Senior  – West Lafayette
