Wolverine cross country team takes Incline Invitational

The Wolverine boys’ cross country team collected their first invitational win of the season last Friday at Incline High School.

Finishing ahead of South Tahoe, third-place North Tahoe and fourth-place Manogue, TNT collected much-needed league points as the regular season wraps up in two weeks.

Graham Herr led the Wolverines with a third-place finish in a time of 17:15. On his heels was teammate Iran Manzano in fourth place at 17:16. Andrew Van Blarigan raced in for fifth place with a 17:31 performance and David Desantes ran a speedy 17:41 for seventh place.

Rounding out the Truckee team were Victor Diez in 21st place with a 19:41 finish and David Cox in 26th at 20:02. Every member of the team medaled in the race, collecting enough team points to clench the top spot in a tough invitational.

“This was how we need to run to win. Every runner placed near the top and ran very hard. We are looking really strong for post-season races,” said Head Coach Mark Brady.

The ladies’ team finished in fifth place overall with Betsy Van Blarigan claiming second with a 19:32 run. Kayla Evans was the next Wolverine to cross the line in 14th place with a time of 22:35 while Whitney Prosser, Katie Clark and Alex Prodaniuk finished in 19th, 28th and 29th place respectively.

“All the runners are working really hard and the improvement from the beginning of the season is evident,” said Brady.

The harriers will travel to Fernley tomorrow for a 5 p.m. invitational start.
