HEBRON | The first place — and often second place — finishers in the running events were usually wearing navy blue in the Porter County Conference girls meet Tuesday as South Central breezed to a total score of 175, 35 points ahead of the field.

"Normally, we can't win PCC in most of our sports but we can win this championship," S.C.'s Rylee Nunemaker said. "We were undefeated (7-0 in the conference) round robin, so it means a lot to us to come out here and prove that it's not just a fluke."

The junior sprinter took first for S.C. in the 200 meter dash, passing at least two competitors in the final 20 meters.

"(Hanover Central's Kaylin Fanta) had beaten me this season, so I was pretty worried," Nunemaker said. "I just took it slow around the first corner so I could have most of my feet left in the last part of the race."

Middle distance runners Kyleigh Werner and Hope Myroup did their part, too. The pair took the top two spots in both the 1,600 and 3,200, with Werner winning both. They were out front for the duration of both races.

"It just felt good to be out there running with each other," Myroup said. "We're just working as a team when we're out there."

Werner won the 800 meter run, with Satellite Carly Kohout right behind her. Werner and Kohout also helped South Central's 3200 relay team post the top time.

"It feels so good to have another teammate next to you," Werner said. "That 18 points toward the team score is so important."

Hanover Central finished second with 140 points in its final PCC meet before leaving the conference.

"We've been talking about PCC since the beginning of the season. We wanted to leave with a bang," junior Kristen Roper said.

Roper beat Nunemaker almost literally by a nose in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.21.

"I'm very competitive," Roper said. "(The other runners in the race) are very good. That's what really pushed me."

Host Hebron finished third with 104 points, followed by Morgan Township and Kouts.
