The OHS XC teams raced yesterday at the notoriously challenging course at the 16-team El Paso-Gridley Invitational. The girls’ team brought home the third place trophy, with Amelia Kistner (7th), Anna Bieber (18th), and Emma Swartzendruber (20th) finishing in the medals, while Cam Lawson and Kaylie Dare rounded out the top-5 for the team. The boys finished 7th, with Logan Demling (17th) finishing in the medals and Cooper Phillips, Caden Clark, CJ Moore, and Evan Petri filling in the top-5 for the team. At this meet, the coaches choose one girl and one boy for the Gourd Award. This award goes to the athlete that they feel had the best personal race of the day. This year’s Gourd Award recipients were foreign exchange student Irati Zaldua and freshman Paul Yeary.
