FROGTOWN — Eight of the nine El Dorado County cross-country varsity teams running at last Saturday’s subsections at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds qualified for this weekend’s section meet, the gateway to the season-ending state championships at Woodward Park in Fresno.

Area squads competed across five divisions. The top 10 teams and individuals advanced to sections. Oak Ridge, El Dorado and Union Mine sends both its boys and girls teams to Willow Hills; Ponderosa’s girls qualified; along with Golden Sierra’s boys, the Grizzlies only varsity team that raced.

Golden Sierra had the only county winner in Jason Yurgelevic who won the Division V race with a time of 17.27 on the three-mile course. The Grizzly boys team also placed first.

The top boys time belonged to El Dorado’s Boone Bates, 19th out of 820 total runners, who coasted into the finish corral in an impressive 16.40. The Cougar boys and girls both took third place in the D-III race — the girls led by Quig Swain’s 13th place finish.

In the D-IV girls race, Michelle Gonzales came in 5th as Union Mine placed second. On the boys side, D’back Makana Kauhaahaa turned in the area’s third best showing at 17.01. His team was seventh.

Trojan Alex Merry, disappointed with last week’s time of over 17.00, ran under that mark Saturday with a 16.57 to help Oak Ridge to eighth place. The Lady Trojans, paced by Briana Dulgar in 15th, were fifth.

Ponderosa’s girls, led by Brittany Anselmo and Hannah O’Donnell, snuck in with a ninth place standing but the boys, in 12th, missed the cut. Bruin David Duncan and Shane Marshall advance as individuals.

In the sophomore boys race, Oak Ridge finished first.
