Perhaps the biggest improvement in times this year has come from Turkey Valley sophomore Lucas Scheidel, who set his second personal record of the season at Crestwood Saturday.
    For the first time in three meets, Turkey Valley’s boys had the numbers for a varsity team score when they ran at the Crestwood Invitational Saturday.    But just barely.
