Panthers place 17th at one of biggest meets of the season

RANGELY I The Rangely Panther harriers made their trek over the mountain and south to the Joe Vigil Invitational in Alamosa, Colorado. They ran on Saturday after watching Adams State win their home meet. 

The  boys placed 17th out of 33 teams and 161 runners. This was one of the biggest meets of the season so far.  The third, fourth and fifth runner did a great job of working together; they were within just a couple of places  of each other. Andrew Dorris had a great race, placing 54th with a time of 18:28. Colton Noel was the next to finish with a time of 19:56, respectively.  James Talbot ran 20:37, Anthony Dorris 20:44, and Kevin Wren 20:47, respectively.  Joseph Adams is improving each week and has taken a minute off his time from the first race, he ran a 21:13. Justin Allred is getting better each week with a time of 23:24.  

“It is fun to see the boys work so hard and together. I look forward to seeing how they will do at regionals,” said head coach Beth Scoggins. 

 The girls only had three running but each runner had a new season personal best or even just a personal best. Mary Scoggins placed 25th with a time of 20:37. Hayley Burr just keeps getting better and is a lot of fun to watch at the end when she gets to do what she does best: sprint. She had a time of 27:17. Macy Morgan works hard at each race and is improving with a time of 30:08. 

The team will take this week off to get some more training in.  They will race again at Moffat county on Saturday, Sept. 25.
