Chase England

Wood River High School runners gave strong performances at the state 4A cross-country competition Saturday, Oct. 27, at Hells Gate State Park in Lewiston but did not come away with any titles.

Senior Chase England was the top boys finisher, taking 11th place in rainy conditions at the course along the Snake River. The top finisher among girls was Janel Passey, who secured 44th place.

Other boys who competed include Wilt Ketchum (36th), Ty Reinemann (73rd), Cameron Bingham (76th), Jimmy Holcomb (101st), Patrick Schneider (103rd) and Connor Hayes (110th). Among girls, other competitors were Mariah Stout (74th), Amanda Passey (76th), Grace Gorham (90th), Brooke Lawrence (94th), Avery Closser (99th) and Hallie McPherson (98th).

Coach Monte Brothwell’s Wood River team earned an automatic team berth to the meet after taking third place in qualifying earlier this month in Sun Valley. Coach Heather Miller’s girls team earned a berth after they put five runners in the top 20 in qualifying to clinch third over Canyon Ridge. Last year, the Hailey girls were fourth, missing state 76-85 behind Canyon Ridge.
