WRHS girls third at Rock Creek Park footrace

Lichtenberg leads the way over 3.1 miles

     Wood River High School senior Sara Lichtenberg led a strong performance by the Hailey girls who placed third among 10 varsity teams during Wednesday’s Canyon Ridge Invitational cross country meet in Twin Falls.

     Lichtenberg (22:24, 61 seconds behind the top girls’ time) clocked her third straight sub-23-minute finish in a southern Idaho 5-kilometer (3.1 mile) prep race.

     Three teammates were also in the top 20—Kirsys Campbell (22:37), Amy Cantrell (23:06) and Amanda Passey (23:31) among 70 girls’ varsity racers. Nampa won the girls’ team event with 34 points and Wood River was third with 84.

     Canyon Ridge and Filer high schools hosted the 22-team meet on a nice day along the Rock Creek Park course. There were 438 finishers including 45 from Wood River High.

     Wood River juniors Ryan Anderson (18:28) and Nelson Cantrell (18:37) followed by senior Sam Burns (18:39) recorded in the top Hailey times in the boys’ varsity 5k race, in 21st, 24th and 26th places respectively.

     Hailey senior Cameron Bingham (18:40) won the 178-racer boys’ junior varsity race by six seconds. Senior Avery Closser (26:36) was the leading Wood River girls’ JV runner.

     A dominant team was Bear River of Garland, Utah, winner of the boys’ varsity and JV team events.

     Wood River competes next at the Minico Invitational on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at Lake Walcott in Rupert.
