Three Forks High School cross country head coach Tara Forsberg was plenty pleased with the way her team competed at last Saturday's Headwaters Invitational.
"Our athletes came to run. We had many PRs (personal record)," she said. "Our boys team is running really well right now. They are training smart and working hard. Our ladies all had great races, they are in a tough field against Townsend and Manhattan."
Leading the way for the boys was Garret Golding who finished sixth with a time of 18:10.07. Beau Johnson was also in the top ten with a time of 18:30.8. Others competing in the varsity race for the Wolves were Bryon Fanning (18:43.5), Gabe Hungerford (19:23.2), Anthony Derian (19:34.8), Jaron Berg (19:54.9), and Rhett Violet.
Trace Hay finished second in the junior high race with a time of 21:23, and Noah Hegar was fourth with a time of 21:52.2.
