Road work is part of the training regiment for the Carbon High cross country team. It also describes their season as well, because they only have one home meet each year. Wednesday afternoon was that luxury for the Dinos and they took full advantage of it with both the boy's and the girl's teams garnering first place out of seven teams. For the Dinos, the sweetest part of the victory was edging out region rival Wasatch.

In the girl's race, Carbon's Regan Powell finished first with a substantial lead over her next competitor. Coming in in a clump was Diane Olsen, Karissa Nelson, Sierra Williams and Kayclia Ivory in sixth through ninth. That group secured the win for the Lady Dinos.

For the boy's, Kaleb Kulow finished third followed by Luke Olsen at fifth, Justin Hepworth in sixth, Austin Pullman in seventh and Cody Hunt in eighth. Again it was the tight finish for the Carbon boys that secured their victory over Wasatch.

Eleven girls and 13 boys competed for Carbon in this race. Coach Telisse Allen was pleased with the performance of all the Carbon kids that ran. Many improved their times. She also wants to thank all those who helped put the meet on.

It takes a lot of volunteers to stage a cross country race. There are people staged at each turn on the course to guide the runners the right direction and make sure they don't get lost. Volunteers stop traffic as the runners cross the road. There are also starters and timers and stat keeper as well as many others who help the race go smoothly.

The teams will be back on the road heading to Orem on Saturday, Sept 26. Those results will be posted as soon as they are available.
