Byrne stays undefeated individually at Bedford-North Lawrence Invitational Saturday PDF Print E-mail

    North Harrison senior cross country runner Tyler Byrne remained undefeated as an individual over the course of the past week, and won the prestigious Bedford-North Lawrence Invitational as an individual in the process.
    The winner in the team standings in the boys’ varsity race was semi state contender Terre Haute North, who had a meager 53 points. North Harrison was in 2nd place with 85 points.
    “We were pretty happy,” said North Harrison boys’ cross country coach Jerry Love. “We’re close enough to them (Terre Haute North) to where we could beat them” later in the semi state.
    To do that, the times will have to lower between the no. 1 runner on the team, Byrne, ad the rest of the top four runners.
    Saturday at the Bedford-North Lawrence Invitational, Byrne won with a time of 15:51. If that seems a bit slower than the previous week at a meet in Louisville’s E. P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park, it is. The course was wet and sloppy, after several days of rain made it so.
