Gage Richardson was a few places behind at 32nd, and achieved a new PR of 20:35 this week. Wyatt Rollins and Gabe Smithers finished with only 1/10th of a second between them, 20:52.40 and 20:52.50, 37th and 38th places. Owen Hannemann took 44th place, with a time of 21:41. The boys placed sixth as a team. The Cowboys will be competing in the regional meet at Confluence Park in Delta on Friday, with races starting at noon.

“It was a bit chilly during the races, but our kids ran well.  Perhaps the temperatures were a bit of extra motivation!” said head coach Marty Casey.
