In cross-country, Sisters placed four girls in the top eight on the way to winning the Regis/Stayton Invitational held Thursday, October 5 at Stayton Middle School.
Brooke Duey (21:19) and Josie Ryan (21:20) took second and third, followed by Kolby McMahon (21:51) and Ella Bartlett (21:58) in seventh and eighth. Naomi Bennette ran her best time of the season (24:41) to place 27th and complete the scoring for Sisters.
Sophie Schoolmeester of Banks won the race in 20:17.
“It was good to take the team trophy on a day that our lead runner, Ella, was doing the race as a training run,” said Coach Charlie Kanzig. “The rest of the girls ran very well and are showing constant improvement.”
Sisters scored 34 points for the win, followed by Stayton (55), Banks (55), Estacada (105), Harrisburg (107), Santiam Christian (118), and Riverdale (171).
The Outlaws boys held their own despite missing two regular varsity runners for the day as they placed third among 15 teams. Banks won the meet with 71 points followed by Monroe (76), Sisters (112), Harrisburg (114), and Santiam Christian (133) in the top five.
The Outlaws’ top three runners finished in the top 10, led by frosh Will McDonnell (18:15) in sixth, junior Colton Middlestetter in seventh (18:20), and frosh Thomas Hamerly (18:32) in 10th.
In addition, George Roberts placed 42nd (20:04), Emerson Backus 57th (20:44), and Finn Clark (22:005) 88th among 137 finishers.
“Like the girls, the boys are packing well and are getting noticeably stronger,” said Kanzig. “The course wasn’t exceptionally fast so as a team we were more concerned with places than setting personal records. We look forward to having Spencer Tisdel and John Berg back in action for our next meet.”
The Outlaws host a small home meet on Wednesday, October 11 at the Pole Creek Ranch against Caldera, Bend, Ridgeview, and Culver.
