Sun Advocate sports reporter

Oct. 13 was Carbon cross country's third time running on the Soldier Hollow course in Heber City. It was a tough meet for the Carbon High runners. Many were battling the effects of flu and other respiratory illnesses that had kept them from practicing. Near the end of the girls varsity race the wind and rain started to fall. For the entire boy's varsity race it was snowing and raining. However, both the girls and boys teams ran well enough to continue onto the state tournament.

Regan Powell was first for Carbon girls and ran a new personal best for that course. Freshman Austin Pullan lead the boys and edged out teammate Justin Hepworth by only a 10th of a second.

The team then headed to the state meet set on Oct. 21. The weather was much better for the state meet.

Powell put herself in the top 30 overall in the girl's race and remained there the entire race. She finished 27th overall.

Diana Olsen was second for Carbon and ran a great solid race. She was followed by Rachel Goodrich who has continued to improve throughout the season. Karissa Nelson, and Sierra Williams ran steady and wrapped up Carbon's scoring five. That gave the Lady Dinos an eight place finish out of 18 teams in 3A.

"The girls ran well as a team and had some stand out performances. Kayla Petersen and Lacey Strong were our sixth and seventh for the team. All but one of these girls will be returning next year. Finishing eighth this year, next year as they all improve we will be a team to be reckoned with," said coach Telisse Allen about the girl's performance.

The boys took 11th in the state for 3A. Cody Hunt was first for Carbon boys. Austin Pullan, Luke Olsen, Kaleb Kulow, and Justin Hepworth were part of the top five for Carbon. The boys that ran the course last year improved and had personal bests.

Skylar Larsen and Carson Tatton finished sixth and seventh to wrap us the varsity runners for the Dinos.

"The athletes are now preparing to attend the Footlocker Regional Championships in Walnut, California in December where they will represent Utah and race against the western United States. The team had a great overall season. I am looking forward to watching this group of athletes in outdoor track," said Allen.
