CLARKSVILLE - Alex Fenn and Jordan Alvey placed fourth to lead Tell City to third place in the 15-team Clarksville invitational hokum karem boys cross country meet Tuesday.

In a hokum karem meet two boys form a relay to each run a one-mile loop three times. The top three duos from each school then form their team's score.

Fenn and Alvey completed their six-mile relay in 32:02.

"That's a really good time," said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden. "That's better than any time we've ever had here (in three years). I think our previous best was 32:50.

Nick Bower and Darian Allen finished 24th in 34:16 and Dylan Kleemann and Corey Henderson 25th in 34:19 to complete Tell City's team score.

Justin Kleemann and Jeremy Kellems just missed scoring for the Marksmen, as they finished 26th in 34:23.

Tell City finished fourth in the girls meet. Sarah Goffinet and Tiffany Davis placed fifth, though the girls' times were not available.

Brittany Waninger and Andyn Rowe were 19th and Mariah Nix and Erika Hauenstein 24th to complete Tell City's scoring.
