Fillmore Central boys cross country team members and coaches hold up three fingers because the Panthers won the boys team title at the Thayer Central Invite in Hebron for a third-straight year Thursday afternoon.  FC prevailed in the heated team race 39-41 over McCool Junction at the 10-team invite on September 24.  Team members include Ryan Poppert, Noah Temme, Chandler Schelkopf, Garrett Whitley, Cole Jividen, Braden Myers and Adam Hoarty.

Paced by four Top-15 individual performances, the Fillmore Central boys slipped past McCool Junction by two points to claim their third consecutive team championship at the 2015 Thayer Central Cross Country Invite.  The Panthers out dueled the Mustangs, 39-41, to bring home the hardware for a third-straight season.  Hastings St. Cecilia was just four more points back at 45 at the 10-team invite.
Adam Hoarty was the leader of the pack for FC placing fifth in 18 minutes, 5 seconds over the Hebron Country Club course on September 24.  Garrett Whitley was next in ninth (18:16) and Chandler Schelkopf took 11th (18:20).  Noah Temme rounded out the varsity scoring with 14th in 18:42.  Cole Jividen covered the 3.1-mile course in 19:11 (19th) and Ryan Poppert took 36th (20:32).  Braden Myers clipped the tape in 21.52 for 53rd place.
Panther coach Brandie Conway noted Schelkopf improved his time by a full minute from a year ago and both Temme and Hoarty trimmed 30 seconds off their previous best in Hebron.  Whitley was 40 seconds on Thursday afternoon and Jividen improved by two minutes.
Grace Jacobson paced the FC girls with a medal effort on Thursday.  The Panther sophomore placed fifth covering the course in 22:15.  Katy Sanchez landed in 38th place at the meet and Sophia Frook was 41st.  Elsie Frook placed 44th.  The FC girls finished in seventh place in the team standings in Hebron.
The Panther girls and boys will be in action this Thursday in York with action slated to begin at 4 p.m. at the York Country Club.
"With it being Homecoming Week, the kids would love to see some support in York," Conway said.
