The Boulder City boys and girls cross-country team prepped for today’s Southern Region Championship meet by turning in several personal best efforts in Saturday’s Divisionals Meet at Foothill.
Despite the name “divisional,” the meet was the regular season’s final big meet and has no bearing on the Southern Region meet today at Sunset Park.
The Lady Eagles, led by Sierra Selinger, who finished second in her division, continued to run well and improve times.
“The girls ran well again,” cross-country coach Canaan Petersen said. “Sierra cut more than 1 minute off of her time from a previous performance on the same course and she placed second. She was only 4 seconds behind the leader in her race and it was a good performance to build on heading into the region race.”
Jessica Embro placed third, while Camille Torgeson was fourth and Emma Torgeson finished seventh.
“We beat our next-closest competitor by 13 points,” Petersen said. “Heading into the region meet, we will try to build off our recent success and run a good race. If the team has five good performances in the region, we will definitely have a shot to not just go to the state meet, but to also win the region championship. That would be a big accomplishment.”
Tyler Campbell and Joren Selinger led the Eagles runners. Campbell had another good race and placed fifth; Selinger finished seventh.
Senior Victor Andrades scored two goals to help the Eagles tie visiting Moapa Valley 3-3 on Oct. 23. Justin Fox had one goal and one assist for Boulder City.
