FOLSOM — Excellent weather and great course conditions was the consensus before, during and after the Delta River League held its varsity 5k Cross Country finals Saturday morning at Willow Hills in Folsom.

Jesuit won boys race while S. Francis was first in the girls race. Oak Ridge was second in both while Ponderosa was fourth in the girls run and its boys were sixth. Each program had hoped for better results.

“It was a good overall effort by our girls but I’m sure the boys are very disappointed. I know how competitive they are and they’ll use this as motivation at subs to qualify for sections,” said Trojan coach Rob Fairley about next weekend’s race at Angels Camp.

While Fairley highlighted the fact Rachel Peterson “ran the race of her life” in improving her PR (personal record) on the course by a whopping 45 seconds, he lamented that his No. 1 boys runner (Dusty Armstrong) was fifth amongst the top Oak Ridge boys.

“It’s just one of things where you’re not going to win them all,” Fairley said.

Jake Zeltner’s seventh place finish was the highest for a local runner and he improved his course PR by 18 seconds. Marcos Conde was ninth with a course PR of nine seconds. Zach Thornton and Evan Baxter were 16-17 and Dusty Armstrong-Jordan Hordesky came in 19-20.

After Peterson was Briana Dulgar (13th), Ellie Velez (15) and Maddie Dezordo-Whitney Wilhelmy-Samantha Kilcollins (18-20).

Injuries and ACT test commitments interfered with the Bruins’ ability to place higher.

“Overall it wasn’t good and a rough go (team-wise) but the kids that raced did well and there were a lot of PRs,” Ponderosa coach Karen Norwood said. “We’re looking forward to Saturday.”

Top performers for the Bruins were Christine Redor (10th), Hannah O’Donnell (17), freshman Claire Hoffman (22), Nicholas Prete (26), Josh Bolier (28) and Brittany Anselmo (29).

Peterson, Redor, Zeltner and Conde were named All League.

Oak Ridge’s frosh/soph boys, led by first-place finisher Alex Merry, placed first while its girls were third. Ponderosa’s girls were fifth and boys sixth.
