The Carbon High cross country team traveled to North Sanpete last Wednesday to compete in an invitational meet. The Dinos had a great performance as the girls took home sixth place honors and the boys captured the fourth place finish overall.

Melanie Madsen led the girls by placing third in a field of 103 competitors. Madsen was in fifth place with 300 yards to go to the finish line. She then started to kick up her speed at 200 yards out and just missed finishing in second place by 100 of a second.

The second place runner for Carbon was Ashley Rowley and was followed by Elizabeth Brooks, Brittany Horrocks, and Jana Burrows.

The boys team finished in fourth place out of the 16 total teams that competed in the invitational meet. Scott Terry placed fourth overall, followed in fifth place by Isaac Goodrich. Not bad considering that there was 81 boys in the race.

The Dinos third runner to cross the finish line was Joe Palmer who was followed by David Goodrich and Chris Cook.

The course was covered with water and mud due to the large amount of rain which fell prior to the event. Many of the athletes in the race ended up slipping and falling into some of these mud holes, taking a realistic mud bath.

The Dinos continue to improve on a daily basis. The team will take these newly developed skills to their next meet which will take place Sept. 18 at 4 p.m. in Ferron.
