LEBANON — With the boys team missing their top runner and the girls’ team short two runners, Grant Union’s cross country team’s athletes put up some of their best times of the season at the Champs Invite on Friday, Sept. 24.

For the boys team, Sonna Smith, Grant Union’s cross country coach, told the Eagle that junior Quinn Larson led the team with his best time of the season, finishing 33rd out of 155 runners in the 5K run at the Lebanon meet with a time of 19:29. Max Bailey, who also logged his season’s best, finished with a time of 21:14.

The team’s two freshmen, Reid Dole and Logan Randleas finished with times of 23:27 and 23:35 respectively, while sophomores Landon Boyd and Skylor Boyd finished with times of 22:42 and 23:24.

Smith said the girls had a great race. She said because the team was two girls short, the squad ran in the junior varsity race, and instead of a 5K, the girls ran a 3K race.

She said Maddie Bailey placed first, with a time of 13:49, beating out 21 other runners. Finishing third for the Pros was Alici Archibald at 14:10. Riley Robertson finished sixth, with a time of 16.0, followed by Paige Weaver with a time 16:12.

Smith said all four girls set personal records at the race.
