PIQUA — It may have been more of a mid-week workout.

But, like always, the Tippecanoe cross country program didn’t mess around.

The Red Devils swept the team titles at the Piqua Invitational Tuesday at Piqua Country Club in the two-mile race, while Bryce Conley cruised to victory in the boys race in 9:51.7.

“We were coming off a hard run Saturday,” Conley said. “So, you have to treat this as more of a workout, because we have a big race Saturday at Louisville.”

But, it was no surprise to see Conley lead the way in the boys race.
