Community School senior Mali Noyes is the new Fourth District 2A girls cross country champion.

Running shoulder-to-shoulder with Valley High School's Lisa Romer for the first portion of Wednesday's state-qualifying run, Noyes accelerated into another gear and won the 3.1-mile race at Gooding Golf Course with a finishing time of 20:25.

It was her first district victory.

Romer, who was last year's State 2A champion, finished second 19 seconds later with a time of 20:44. Nineteen runners competed in the event.

Meanwhile, Cutthroat senior Mike Matteson finished a strong second to Oakley High School's Ryan Kingsland in the 2A boys' competition on the Gooding course. Thirty-seven runners competed.

Noyes, Matteson and two other Cutthroats, Sam Farnham and Max Durtschi, qualified for the State 2A cross country footrace set for Saturday, Oct. 28, in Lewiston.

The Cutthroats came within a single point of qualifying their entire five-runner boys' team for the state trip.
