XC: Race Recap

By Taylor Eldridge

I haven’t really looked around too much, but I did just get the El Dorado Invitational results. And boy, was it one heck of a meet. I wish I could have been there.

To recap, Maki pulled out the same strategy as last week and edged Balch by a second with a strong kick at the end. Goddard girls ran a great race and finished 3rd with Carroll 2nd. Derby was 5th but ran without Amber Green.

In the boys race, the Porter-Sprague-Metler showdown lived up to the hype. Porter ran a 15:38, beating Sprague by a second and Metler by four. My story from Thursday, home-schooled John Murphy III, placed 5th with a 16:22 beating some good runners.

I’m writing a lot more now, but just wanted to get that out there.
