In the 2.8-mile frosh/soph girls race, Piper Crook was seventh with a time of 24:24.30, Tayler Zolyniak finished eighth with a time of 24:24.93 and Baylee Ringer was 16th in 26.19.71, with 112 runners competing.
The meet also included a middle school race, and Fernley Intermediate School sixth grader Jack Lutkenhouse finished sixth in the 1.94-mile 6th/7th grade boys race with a time of 13:08.49
“The kids ran very well on a really difficult course,” coach Todd Wright said. “It was a great day because we brought some of our Fernley Intermediate and Silverland runners with us, so they participated in the 6th-7th and 8th grade races.”
