The Carbon High Cross Country teams are finding success as their season is solidly underway. The boys team tied for second with Wasatch in the Union Classic at Roosevelt's golf course last Wednesday Sept 2.They ended up in third as the tie breaker depended on the finish time of the sixth place finisher for each time. They brought home a first place finish in Moab on September 5. The girls team was the top finisher at both the meets and remain undefeated in their season.

The Union course was a tough 3.11 course with a one mile gradual uphill. Uintah won the meet. It was a very tight region meet with very competitive teams. Cody Hunt was Carbon's first finisher, followed by Kaleb Kulow. Justin Hepworth, Luke Olsen and Austin Pullan were the other top Carbon runners. Skylar Larsen and Isaac Morley placed six and seventh.

The girls took on the same teams and once again came out on top. They finished first overall Regan Powell was second overall in the race. The top five Carbon girls all finished in the top 15 once again. Diana Olsen completed the race fourth overall followed by Sierra Williams. Karissa Nelson and Kayla Petersen rounded up the top five for Carbon.

"The girls are competing very well and are improving each race," said Coach Telisse Allen.

On Saturday, Sept 5 Carbon went to Moab. Grand has a new home course. This was a great course and both Carbon boys and girls brought home a first place finish. The competition included Grand, Monticello, San Juan, Monument Valley, and White horse.

San Juan had two boys finish in front of Carbon's first runner; however the Dinos finished 41 points ahead of San Juan for the win. Justin Hepworth was fourth overall, Cody Hunt was fifth. Austin Pullan finished seventh and Luke Olsen was eight. Carson Tatton secured the win for Carbon by finishing 14th. Freshman Isaac Morley finished sixth for Carbon and was in the top 25 for the meet.

The Lady Dino's toughest competition was also San Juan. The final score was Carbon 24, San Juan 31. Regan Powell ran a tactful, strong race and finished second overall. Karissa Nelson, Diana Olsen, Kacylia Ivory, and Sierra Williams finished forth, fifth, sixth and seventh respectively. The girls had some great competition and ran some new personal bests. Along with Ivory, Kristen Jewkes and Joelle Brunvand joined the team for the weekend meet. They all play other fall sports. Lacey Strong and Erica Mantz both set new personal bests and continue to improve as the season progresses.

The Dino cross country team will meet up with some bigger schools on Saturday, Sept 12 as they compete in the Wasatch Invitational at the Soldier Hollow golf course.
