SSHS Boys Varsity XC finishes 3rd at Home Meet
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
South Summit’s home meet was held in Pine Valley–sagebrush and fall colors in the Uintas made for a beautiful setting for the high-altitude 3-mile course. The SS Boys got the team pack concept down, the 5 scoring finishes all coming in the top third with 13th, 14th, 15th, 17th, and 21st place out of the field of 66 runners. Jackson Dean led the boys varsity, followed closely by Braxton Booth, Brayden Staples, Koven Card and Logan Crandall, all coming in under 21:00 minutes. Alex Peterson and Sam Galati anchored the varsity squad, with Jared Leary, Brevin Riehl, and Keaton Crandall contributing as JV.
Abby Laswell led the Wildcat girls with her 4th place finish, followed by Jillian Tillett and Genna Grajek. Since 5 runners are needed to score as a team, Providence Hall was the only school with enough girl runners to qualify.
