Whitehorse cross country runs well at Four Corners Classic
Whitehorse High School cross country runners joined San Juan, Monticello, and several Colorado teams as they competed at the Four Corners Classic in Durango this past Friday, October 1.
Competing on a fairly flat 5K course, both the girls and boys teams saw amazing races. Officials used the top five runners to calculate team scores at the event.
Since the Raiders only had four boys and one girl competing, neither team was able to put up a team score at this particular race. That didn’t stop any of the Whitehorse runners from putting up excellent performances however.
On the boys side, senior Weston Manygoats, who has been a consistent leader for the boys team this year, once again finished first for the Raiders. He crossed the line in 22nd, posting a time of 19:36.
Manygoats was followed by two fellow seniors. Keeyah Begay, less than a minute behind, finished the race in 33rd with a 20:28 time. Following Begay was Nicholas Pelt who finished in 75th with a 26:12.
Rounding out the runners for the Raiders was Robryan Tapaha, a sophomore, who finished in 84th with a time of 28:49.
In the girls race, Heidi Thomas represented Whitehorse well, crossing the finish line in 21st with a time of 23:44. Thomas, a senior, was the only female runner competing at the Durango meet for the Raiders.
