The annual Seymour Cross Country Parent Meeting will take place August 6th at 6:00 P.M. at the Crestview Pool. Parents should bring a side dish - vegetable, salad or dessert. Meat, drinks and table service will be provided. Mr. Tormoehlen will be grillin' the dogs for us again this year. This is a chance to get to know each other and talk about the upcoming season as well as share some information regarding rules and proceedures for the fall season. Bring a lawn chair.

Men's Cross Country is 26th in Indiana Runner Preseason Rankings.

Indiana Runner...

#26 – Seymour Owls
Brown County Semi-State #5
Last Year’s Results:
Brown County Sectional: 3rd place (88 points)Brown County Regional:  3rd place (111 points)Brown County Semi-State:  14th place (332 points)
Returning Runners:  (Based on results from the Brown County Semi-State)
Daniel Hauersperger (11) – 16:50 (41st place)
Ian Hensen (12) – 16:59 (47th place)
Jack Tormoehlen (12) – 17:05 (51st place)
Tyler Hatton (12) – 17:51 (106th place)
Dusty Janssen (12) – 18:13 (115th place)
Keegan Bowman (11) – 18:17 (120th place)
2013 Outlook:
The Owls had just one senior on their entire roster in 2012 so they will be returning a veteran team which is always nice. In addition, they will get back Mitch McCoy who was injured during the second half of the 2012 XC season. McCoy had a breakout track season, running 1:56.44 and finishing 12th at State in the 800. If he can translate that performance to the grass, he, Tormoehlen, Hauersperger, and Hansen have a great shot at leading the rest to a State berth.

Lady Owls XC Ranked 41st by Indiana Runner

The Lady Owls were recently 41st in the annual Indiana Runner preseason rankings.

Indiana Runner....

#41 Seymour Owls
Brown County Semi-State #9
State meet history: Never qualified
2012 Results:
Brown County Sectional:  2nd place (60 points)
Brown County Regional:  3rd place (81 points)
Brown County Semi-State:  10th place (292 points)
Returning Runners:  (Based on results from the Brown County Semi-State)
Zoey Johnson (12) – 18:26 (5th place)
Madison Hays (11) – 20:15 (46th place)
Mariah Lewis (11) – 21:32 (95th place)
Alexis Beed (12) – 22:13 (112th place)
Mikaela Grout (10) – 22:24 (119th place)
Taylor Spivey (12) – 22:46  (130th place)
2013 Outlook:
The Owls return a large chunk of last  year’s team, including frontrunner Zoey Johnson who was just a couple seconds away from finishing All-State last  year. Seymour could be a couple of talented newcomers or marked improvement from returners away from qualifying for its first ever state meet.

Go Lady Owls! Hard work this summer could pay off in a trip to STATE! Indiana Runner ranks one girls and one boys team per day starting with #50. To follow the rankings log in to and click on Top 50 2013 Preseason XC Teams. The boys are still in the running.
