Oak Ridge girls 2nd at league meet

FOLSOM — Delta River League cross country held its league championships Saturday on the Willow Hills course on the edge of the Folsom High campus.

The Oak Ridge varsity girls, led by Rachel Peterson, took second place to finish second in the league standings. Peterson was fourth with a time of 19.36, her best this season on the challenging 5,000 meter course.

“I tried to go out fast with the lead pack,” Peterson said. “Although I slowed down on the second lap I tried to keep pushing things. We were hoping for second (as a team) and want to be top three at sections.”

The top three girls teams from the Sac-Joaquin Section will qualify for the season-ending state tournament Nov. 30 at Woodward Park in Fresno. Next up is this weekend’s Sub-Sections at Angels Camp in Calaveras County.

The top 10 won All League honors at an awards ceremony follwing the race. Peterson was joined by Briana Dulgar, seventh place, and Arial Hendrickson, eighth. Team-wise, St. Francis was first, Sheldon, third, Pleasant Grove, fourth, Folsom, fifth, and Ponderosa, sixth — the exact order they finished in the standings.

The Lady Bruins were led by Hannah O’Donnell who finished 23rd and Brittany Anselmo who crossed in 27th.

“I wanted to go out hard like I normally do and keep a good pace,” O’Donnell said. “I was proud of my race but I could have given more at the end.”

Despite a 32-second improvement on the Willow Hills course, Trojan Alex Merry’s 11th place finish in the varsity boys race left him shy of the top 10.

“I was hoping to beat 17 minutes but didn’t … and wanted to medal but I didn’t,” Merry said. “I felt pretty good on the hills but in general didn’t feel great and could have done better.”

Oak Ridge was fourth. Jesuit and Sheldon harriers flooded the top and thus, the top two places in the standings while Folsom was third. Trojan Patrick Irwin (17) and Colin Pilcher (19) were each in the top 20. In all, seven Trojans had personal best times for the course.

Ponderosa was led by Josh Boiler (21) and David Duncan (27).

In the frosh/soph boys race, Oak Ridge, behind Austin Streetman (2) and Luke Bricca (4), was second, just six points behind Jesuit.

The Bruins were third as Shane Marshall finished one second (11.34-11.35) behind Streetman. With several varsity races under his belt, Marshall will move up for the postseason for Ponderosa.

“I was trying to stay with the leader but after the first mile he went really fast and at the end I tried to catch the second guy,” said Marshall whose teammate, Nathan Kohl, was 10th.

The Lady Bruins frosh/soph team finished fourth. Claire Hoffman (5) and Casey Halkett (9) were top 10. Oak Ridge’s lone runner, Katie Sanfelice, was 18th after topping her personal best on a 3,400 meter course by 51 seconds.
