Runners gather at Jerome’s Crossroads Point

Montgomery captures third race win

    Winning a girls’ 5-kilometer footrace for the third time in four events this fall, Wood River High School senior Haley Montgomery clocked a season-best time of 21 minutes and 54 seconds in capturing the Cross-roads Point Challenge prep cross-country race Friday.
    Montgomery finished the 3.1-mile test 15 seconds ahead of Jerome senior Kayla Green and 40 seconds faster than Twin Falls senior Alyssa Brann in the 44-runner girls’ varsity class on the Jerome course.
    Two other Wood River sen-iors, Janel Passey and Mariah Stout, clocked 23:01 and 23:16 in placing fourth and eighth re-spectively. The speedy trio sparked the Wolverines (42 points) to first place in the team standings among six schools.
    Bouncing back from injury, Wolverine junior Alexis Gon-zalez (18:44) placed eighth of 68 boys’ varsity runners.
    There were 145 varsity and JV boys in the new event hosted by Jerome High School, plus 122 varsity/JV girls and another 88 in a 3k middle school race.
    Wood River High had 33 fin-ishers and the Community School of Sun Valley sent seven across the finish line. Commu-nity School junior Tara Burchmore (24:17) placed 14th among varsity girls.
