The Indiana Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches has selected their 2021 Team Indiana All-Stars to compete in the 2021 Mid-East XC Championships.

IATCCC release and information can be found here.

The meet, held annually since 1987, will run once again on the course at Indian Riffle Park after a one-year absence due to Covid-19. This year's team will consist of two cross country state champions and one multi-time track champion. There are several multi-time All-State runners and Sectional, Regional, and Semi-State champions. 

This year's team included five schools with first-time All-Stars: Angola, Forest Park (two runners), Castle, Lewis Cass, and Western Boone. Carmel has added to their overall total of 23 Lady Greyhounds who have been selected to represent Indiana in the meet. 

The Girls are the defending team champions after their 2019 win.

IATCCC Cross Country All-Star Head Coach Paige Brunner from Oak Hill said, "We are very excited to have put together the two squads that we have. With this senior class it was going to be hard to have not put together a star-studded line up but we are still very fortunate to get so many Top 20 and 1st Team All State athletes on board."

Brunner continued, "We know there are so many other opportunities and factors that come into play after an already long season that we greatly appreciate those athletes and coaches willing to accept this honor and opportunity to represent the highly competitive state of Indiana. It's not every year we enter the meet with two former State Champions let alone so many Sectional, Regional, and Semi State Champions as well."

When asked about the appeal of being the All-Star team for high school athletes, he stated, "We also like having so many athletes that helped lead their respective programs to many amazing accomplishments this fall both leading up to and at the IHSAA State Finals last weekend. We hope that it is a great experience for these athletes and that they are able to represent not only Indiana but also their schools, individual programs, and themselves at a high level.  They have all had great careers and seniors seasons. The Mid-East Championship Meet simply gives them another opportunity to celebrate their talents and compete with so many long time competitors - rivals on a big stage."
