     It was a perfect fall day for running, and the results were pretty decent as well for Wood River High School and Community School cross country teams Wednesday afternoon.

     The Wood River Wolverine boys (44 points) placed second to Twin Falls (32) in the Great Basin Conference 3.1-mile meet at College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, and the Wolverine girls were third behind Twin Falls and Jerome.

     Finishing that high as teams meant Wood River qualified both its boys’ and girls’ squads for the State 4A cross country meet Oct. 30 in Soda Springs.

     Coach Monte Brothwell’s Wolverines placed four boys in the top 10: Andrew Pfeiffer (17:18) in third place, Alec England (17:35) in fifth, Ben Stout (17:39) in eighth and Chase England (17:50) in ninth. Corrine Smith (21:33) was sixth overall among the girls.

     The 4th District 3A/2A/1A footrace was staged Wednesday at the Gooding Golf Course. There, the Community School put three boys and three girls in the top 13 of the 2A/1A competition and qualified both its boys’ and girls’ teams for state, also to be held at Soda Springs.

     Fastest runners for the Cutthroat boys were Max Christman (18:01) in fourth place, Zach Lindahl (18:57) in 11th and Gray Riedinger (19:00) in 13th. Leading the girls were Annie Pokorny (20:23) in fourth place, Maranda Stopol (22:03) in eighth and Morgan Atkinson (23:08) in 13th. Emily Williams (24:20) also finished in 17th.

     In the team standings at Gooding, Declo (27) won the boys’ race over Gooding (47) and third-place Community School (70). The Cutthroat girls (51) were a close second to Gooding (33) in the final ranks.
