Cross country

While Bozeman ran away with the Capital City 7-of-7 Cross Country Meet in Helena, some area racers finished well in the unique meet.

In the No. 1's race — the meet is divided into seven races with team's No. 1 runners racing against other No. 1's, team's No. 2's racing against other No. 2's and so on — Kalispell Flathead's Ben Perrin was the West's top finisher in third. Perrin crossed the finish line at 16 minutes, 12 seconds, and was 14 seconds faster than Missoula Hellgate's Isaac Schmidt in fourth. Corvallis' Anders Watt cracked the Top 7 with a time of 16:42.

Hellgate's Ian Curtis placed second in the boys' No. 2's race, while Missoula Sentinel added a pair of placers in the boys' No. 3 and No. 4 races. The Spartans' Owen Smith took third in the 3's; Jesse Dimich-Louvet placed second in the 4's.

The West was well represented in the girls' No. 1's race, despite Bozeman's Camila Noe taking top honors at 17:49. Bigfork's Bryn Morley finished second, Hellgate's Ella DeGrandpre placed third. Hamilton's Lyric DeVries was fourth. Missoula Sentinel's Jaylyn Hallgrimson took fifth, while Flathead's Kaitlin Wride brought home seventh.
