Cross-country teams run on Front Range


The Bulldog boys and girls cross country teams traveled to the Front Range on Thursday and Friday to compete in the Runners Roost and Arapahoe invitationals.

Thursday's meet featured three divisions for both boys and girls. Moffat County ran in division 2 and the boys and girls placed high in the team standings.

The boys finished 10th with 249 points, and the girls were sixth with 206 points.

The top runners for the girls on Thursday were sophomore Alicia Nelson, seventh (20:39); senior Amber Suits, 33rd (22:32); and senior Katie Morris, 48th (23:10).

The boys' top finishers were senior Jeremy Bird, seventh (17:18); senior Jake Miller, ninth (17:25); and junior Mike McNicol, 29th (18:13).

Friday's meet in Arapahoe was cool and rainy, but assistant coach Jennifer Pressgrove was impressed at how the teams turned it around.

"I think that running two meets back to back can be pretty hard on their legs," Pressgrove said. "But I was impressed. They ran just as tough on Day 2 as they did on Day 1."

The girls team finished 15th out of 33 teams, and the boys finished 14th out of 33 teams.

The top three runners on the girls team were Nelson (21:09); Jacey Robinson (22:43); and Suits (23:07).

On the boys side, Bird finished 11th with a time of 17:30, McNicol finished 19th (17:47), and Miller was in 20th (17:52).

The Bulldogs' next meet will be in Grand Junction on Friday.
