October 2, 2013 — By PAUL BEITLER
Taylor Thompson and Ivy Maddox were individual winners Tuesday evening to lead the Southern Wells Raiders’ cross country teams to Allen County Athletic Conference victories over the visiting Woodlan Warriors.
Thompson won the boys’ 5,000-meter race by 90 seconds in 18:18, while Maddox led four teammates into the finish chute with a time of 21:17 in the girls’ race.
The Raiders’ boys topped Woodlan 22-35, while the girls won by default since the Warriors only had three runners.

Zach Barrett and Jay Knepp were fifth and sixth for Woodlan in 21:00 and 21:05, respectively.
Brooke Penrod was second in 21:59 for the Raiders’ girls. Meghan Yencer was third in 22:14 and Chloe Maddox fourth in 22:33. Cassandra Lomont was fifth for Woodlan in 24:11, and teammate Ellie Kayser was sixth in 24:12.
