NEW CARLISLE — When John Arndt first met Ethan Walden, he was a sophomore who had never run before and showed up for the start of practice with a Rubik’s Cube.
“He’s a very interesting kid,” the New Prairie coach said. “He hadn’t run all summer. We didn’t seem him until the first day. I was like, well, whatever, join us, have fun. He does these speed contests. One day, he told me, coach, I have a tournament Saturday. He didn’t know that’s when we had meets. It’s hilarious.”
