     Wood River’s boys ended up with 29 team points for 10th place of 16 schools Thursday. The Hailey girls had 22 points for 11th place of 14 girls’ teams.

     Coach J.C. Nemecek said, “The teams had good performances and 18 personal records were set.”

     Camas County senior Stephanie Moore accounted for the lion’s share of Fairfield’s 19 team points by finishing second in the long jump (16-2.5) and fifth in the triple jump (31-2). Musher senior Colton Rasmussen placed fourth in triple jump (37-4) for the Fairfield boys.
