RANGELY I The Rangely Middle School cross country team stayed close to home by running in Loudy-Simpson Park in Craig, Colorado, on Saturday. The course was 2.4 miles and they raced along the river and over trails.
The girls had the pleasure of running first in the morning. The girls had five runners so they were able to run as a team, and as a team they took first place. TyLee Fielder led the girls by taking second place with a time of 18:26. Rachel Elder and Taya Wren came in sixth and seventh place. Rachel had a time of 21:54 and Taya 21:58 respectively. Samantha Granger was only a few places behind them taking 10th place with a time of 22:21. Faith Prieto ran a time of 24:07 for 12th place.
The boys only had one runner: Matthew Morgan. He was able to place 10th with a time of 20:58.
The middle school team only has a couple more meets left. They will be in Delta on Friday at Confluence Park.
