Basic High School hosted this season’s cross-country team division championships on Saturday, Oct. 13.
Auston Marshall crossed the finish line at 21:04.05. Just 14 seconds behind, Chance Christensen came in at 21:14.04.
Alex Rowe finished at 23:00.05. Jarret Leon came in at 23:50.07.
Hayden Showell finished at 25:11.07. Ashton Showell finished at 25:21.01.
Coach Lacee Pearson said, “It was a very good meet. Auston, Alex, Auston, and Jarret all improved their 5k times by at least a minute, moving up the team score by five minutes altogether. However, to make it to state we need to repeat that during regionals. Hayden and Chance weren’t feeling their best, but when they are healthy again, they will help out with that too. I am just really happy about what happened last week.”
This weekend the team will participate in a road race at St. George, just for some extra practice. On Oct. 26, the regional championships will be held in Boulder City at Veterans Memorial Park.
