North Tahoe cross-country: Lakers competitive at Bella Vista Invite

Up next

North Tahoe will end the regular season at the Mt. SAC Invitational in Walnut, Calif., the world’s largest cross-country meet, on Friday.

With its challenging hills, the Willow Hills Reservoir Course near Folsom High School suited the North Tahoe cross-country team well at the Bella Vista Invitational last Saturday.

North Tahoe’s varsity boys finished ninth in a field of 30 schools in the small-school competition, while junior Quinn Lehmkuhl recorded a seventh-place finish out of 185 runners in the varsity girls race.

Lehmkuhl covered the 5K course in a time of 19:36.79 and was followed by teammates Kaya Williams in 70th (22:25.31) and Xochitl Luna in 86th (22:58.36).

Senior Cam Goldstone led the varsity boys with an 18th-place finish out of 200 runners, posting a time of 17:01.94. Other North Tahoe scorers included Julien Bordes in 28th (17:28.46), Ryan Heisinger in 76th (18:32.34), Alex Whitham in 80th (18:33.76) and Tobin Johnson in 136th (19:48.56).

The Lakers’ underclassmen were equally impressive. 

The frosh/soph girls placed second among 15 schools, with Sophia Sanchez finishing first on the 3,400-meter course (13:21.36), Elan Lindsey finishing third (13:45.11), Ella Carr fourth (13:52.08), Josy Johnson 25th (15:08.64) and Jacs Mellor 47th (15:57.83).

JC Schoonmaker posted a runner-up finish in the frosh/soph boys race (11:45.60), in which the Lakers finished sixth out of 20 schools. He was followed by Jake Inclan in 41st (13:02.25), Jacob Gramanz in 43rd (13:04.23), Riley Hacker in 51st (13:15.56) and Max Roske in 60th (13:32.11).

In the JV boys race, Jackson Shaw was 38th (12:51.56), Andrew Morgan 39th (12:51.93), Alexander Steele 70th (13:20.68), Drew Austin 111th (14:12.21) and Kevin Caravelli 128th (14:43.45).
