Spanish Fork Cross Country is the team to watch

r

Spanish Fork High School has had a jump in participation in its Cross Country program over the last two years, and the Dons are off to a great start for this season.

r

On Aug. 20, at the Pre-Region Meet, the Boys Cross Country team finished in second place just eight points behind Salem. The girls finished in fourth place. Top finishers for the boys were Heston Andersen (1st), Joey Buck (4th) and Nate Hanson (5th). Top finishers for the girls were Madeline Stone (6th) and Alivia Evans (7th).

r

On Aug. 25 at the Salem Hills Meet, the Boys Spanish Fork Cross Country team beat Salem Hills For the first time in history. Top finishers for the boys were Heston Andersen (1st), Joey Buck (2nd), Nate Hanson (3rd), Fletcher Stanworth (9th) and Guts Wright (15th). Top finishers for the girls were Madeline Stone (5th), Sam Crockett (6th), Sarah Heaps (10th) and Alivia Evans (11th). 

r

On Sept. 5 at the Utah County Invite the Boys Cross Country team took home a trophy with its second-place finish. The girls team finished in sixth place. Medal winners in the Boys Jr/Sr Race were Heston Andersen (3rd), Joey Buck (8th), Nate Hansen (11th) and Fletcher Stanworth (20th). Medal winner in the Boys Fr/Soph Race was Tanner Olson (16th). Medal winners in the Girls Jr/Sr Race were Madeline Stone (8th), Alivia Evans (18th) and Sam Crockett (19th). Medal winner in the Girls FR/Soph Race was Sarah Heaps(13th)

r

At the Murray XC Invite on Sept. 15, the boys team finished in seventh place. The girls team finished in 17th place. Medal winners were Heston Andersen (10th) and Nate Hanson (21) out of nearly 900 male runners from Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.

r

The boys team continues to be the team to beat this year in our region. While we have had individuals qualify for state in the past two years (Heston Andersen in 2013 and 2014 and Nate Hanson in 2014), the entire team has a team qualification within its reach. The girls are also fighting hard to qualify for state this year. We have several girls that have stopped playing other sports when they realized how great they are at running. We wish the Cross Country Dons good luck in their upcoming meets and at state next month.
