Truckee cross country: Wolverines finish ahead of the pack at home meet
Special to the Sun
The Truckee High School cross-country squads dominated in their first home meet in recent years, the Truckee Invitational, held at the Alder Creek Adventure Center last Saturday.
“The Truckee Invitational was a huge success,” Coach Rob McClendon said. “The course really showed Truckee’s talent with high elevation running and a hilly 5k course. Truckee finished first in all the races.”
The girls varsity team won and placed five runners in the top seven spots: Brenna Wapstra-Scott in first (22 minutes, 44 seconds), Carrie Bradley in third (23:10), Claire Lang-Ree in fourth (23:12), Syra Fillat in sixth (23:29) and Lily Robertson in seventh (23:29).
The boys varsity team was one short of fielding a team, but dominated nonetheless, with Ian Smith taking the win in 19:12, nearly a minute and a half ahead of the field. Teammate Tyler Ferrera finished in third (21:26), followed by Jordan Guldman in seventh (21:57) and David Dalicandro in eighth (22:23).
In JV action, freshman Isabella Terrazas won the girls race by an astounding three-minute margin in 23:15. A trio of Truckee sophomores finished 1-2-3 in the JV boys race: Calin Laine in first (19:50), Ids Propstra in second (20:34) and KC Larkins in third (21:01).
Truckee will compete in two of the largest and most competitive meets in California over the next two weeks, the Stanford Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 1, and the Clovis Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 8, as the Wolverines look prepare for regionals at month’s end.
