TCS home meet Thursday

While Wood River thinclads will go to the American Falls Invitational today, Wednesday, coach Rick Kapala's Community School Cutthroats plan to host a small school meet on the 3.1-mile Sagewillow Farms course Thursday, Oct. 8.

The middle school boys begin at 4 p.m. followed by the middle school girls at 4:15 p.m. Varsity and junior varsity girls start their event at 4:30 p.m. and varsity/JV boys 5:15 p.m. on the hilly Elkhorn course.

Cutthroat runners traveled to the Challis Mile High Classic 5-kilometer footrace last Saturday on a two-loop course at Challis Hot Springs. Challis won the boys' team race 42-47 over Teton of Driggs. West Jefferson of Terreton captured the girls' title 56-69 over Firth.

Medalists were Caden Portela of Firth 17:29 and Alice Keller of Salmon 20:11.

Remarking about his team's results at Challis and also at Twin Falls last Wednesday, coach Kapala said, "I think everyone set a personal record at some point this past week."

Here are the Cutthroat placings and times in the field of 57 boys and 54 girls at Challis: Zana Davey 25th in 25:09, Gray Reidinger 27th in 21:07, Morgan Atkinson 30th in 26:10, Katie Dumke 36th in 27:51, Eric Griffith 40th in 23:03 and Sophia DeWolfe 45th in 29:38.
