Ridgeline girls and Bear River boys win Region 11 Cross Country championships

WELLSVILLE – While Sky View’s Kate Dickson flew through the course and left everyone in her dust from start to finish (completing the race at the American West Heritage Center in 18:35.3), it was the Ridgeline girls varsity team that won the Region 11 cross country title for 2020. Ridgeline (33) was paced by Alexis Patrick (19:28.2), Madison Patrick (19:41.4), Mackenzie Duncan (20:00.1) and Emily Spaulding (20:09.1) who all finished in the top 10. The Ridgeline girls were followed by Bear River (58), Sky View (72), Mountain Crest (74), Green Canyon (123) and Logan (171).

For the boys, the Bear River #1 and #2 duo of Peter Nielsen (16:18.5) and Daniel Curtis (16:30.6) helped secure a Region 11 championship for the Bears. It was evident the type of work and progress Nielsen has made over the course of the cross country season. On September 16th, when a number of these same athletes ran this course during the Cache Box Cross Country Meet, Nielsen was the fastest runner from Region 11 with a time of 16:42. Following Bear River (48) in the boys cross country standings was Ridgeline (58), Mountain Crest (81), Green Canyon (81), Logan (111) and Sky View (120).

The state cross country championships take place next Wednesday in Cedar City.
