Roundup: Girls use home advantage to score at regionals

Taking advantage of running on their home course, Boulder City High School girls cross-country team placed second at the 3A southern region championship held Saturday, Nov. 2.

Running at Veterans’ Memorial Park, the Lady Eagles finished with a score of 45, behind rival Moapa Valley (41).

“A few of the girls had a tough day while others ran really well,” head coach Staci Selinger said. “Second obviously wasn’t the goal, but we’re happy to have made state.”

The team’s three seasoned stars, sophomore Mary Henderson (20:51), senior Audrey Selinger (22:01) and junior Sophie Dickerman (22:20), finished second, third and fourth, respectively.

“That was huge and exactly where we wanted them,” Staci Selinger said.

Running among 62 competitors, junior Chloe Payne (25:03) and freshman Callie Torgesen (25:48) finished 17th and 23rd to round out the Lady Eagles’ efforts.

The Lady Eagles will now turn their attention to Saturday’s 3A state meet at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno, Nevada.

“We are continuing to train and focus on our goals for state,” Staci Selinger said. “The northern teams are always tough, so we have to be ready to bring our best on Saturday in Reno.”

The boys team failed to qualify for state after placing seventh at regionals. The team’s top runners, juniors Ethan Porter (19:19) and Sean White (19:29) finished 20th and 22nd, respectively.
