The team took home multiple first place honors in both the boys’ and girls’ varsity races, winning both the individual and team awards for each. Davis runners also claimed the top four individual positions in both races.
“It was a perfect day for us at the Region Championships,” said Davis High cross country coach Corbin Talley. “The weather was ideal, and we took advantage of it, having our best race of the season and one of the best meets in Davis cross country history.”
Shea Martinez took home the first place individual gold in the girls’ race with a time of 18:07, narrowly missing the course record she set at last year’s Region 1 championships.
Madison Garlock finished second on the girls’ side with a time of 18:39, and Joanna Boyd took third with a time of 18:52.
In the boys’ race, Davis runners actually took the top seven positions, with Brad Nye coming in first with a time of 15:18. Brayden Cromar took second with a time of 15:30, while Preston Johnson ran into third place with a time of 15:34.
“It was an incredible sight,” said Talley. “We shattered the team time record by running 1:05 faster than we did a year ago for our top five runners.”
The state championships were to be held Wednesday, Oct. 19, after the paper went to press.
