Heritage High School's Friday Liberty Bell Invitational saw a fine finish for Bulldog boys, who were second overall within their division. Riley Allen placed sixth out of 197 runenrs at a time of 17 minutes, 24 seconds, followed by Connor Scranton in 11th, Carter Severson 14th, Brandon Beason 22nd and Hayden's Chris Carrouth 26th in the points tabulation.

The course that cuts through suburban areas is somewhat unusual compared to most seen during the season, Scranton said.

"All the courses are different, so you can't get too made with your time," he said. "It's pretty quick, pretty different, a lot of road, some trail."

Also running for MCHS boys were Tyler Driggs, Garrett Flint, Nick Pugh, AJ Barber, Colin Jensen and Wilson Eike.

Liberty Hippely and Hayden’s Makenna Knez were seconds behind as 35th and 38th, while Kaylee Durham, Alyssa Chavez and Allison Villard stayed the course within the top half of the 157 girls who ran.

With many runners resetting their season bests, coach Todd Trapp expects still better things to come.

"I feel like our training is really coming along," he said.

MCHS and Craig Middle School cross country will each compete in the Eagle Valley Invitational Sept. 17 in Gypsum.
