Boys and Girls Cross Country competes in Evanston
October 6, 2022
The Green River High School boys and girls Cross Country teams competed at the Evanston Invitational this past weekend against teams from Evanston and Lyman and a few competitors from Manila, Utah. There were 33 runners in the girls field and 52 in the boys. Head Cross Country Coach Craig Leavitt noted that Evanston has a large team and he felt the girls "got in there and competed." Leavitt pointed out that Evanston moved from being one of the better 4A teams to now being 3A, so we will be seeing them again soon.
The Coach also pointed out that on the boys side their top runner this season, Nathan Stevenson, went down halfway into the race and turned his ankle, but the Coach expects that he should be back this week in Rock Springs.
The top finisher for the girls was Isabelle Murdock who finished fifth in 22:36.60, followed by Madison Murdock in sixth just one second back in 22:37.60, with Lily Murdock close behind in eighth place at 22:44.0. Following the Murdocks was Jayleigh Wright in 11th in 23:47.00, Meeka Iwen in 12th in 23:50.20, Liliana Adams in 24th in 27:42.80, Pamela Pena Esdcal in 25th at 28:23.90 and Kayla Worden in 32nd in 36:52.10.
For the boys, Hale Iwen came in 16th at 19:55.00, James Harper in 22nd in 20:32.70, Keegan Gailey in 34th in 21:27.30, Marcos Mandujano in 35th in 21:27.30, Christian Oswald in 39th in 21:54.30 and Jordan Andrew in 42nd in 22:16.30.
