It was a true David versus Goliath story.
While twin sisters Ivy and Morgan Horn fell just short of their goal of bringing home a state girls track Division III champion, they undoubtedly impressed onlookers with a strong performance over the weekend.
The pair guided Waynesfield-Goshen to a runner-up finish by scoring 34 points as the only two qualifiers for the team. The pair knew they had a shot at a title against a strong Versailles team, which had 11 runners competing. Versailles nipped the Tigers for the title with 39 points.
