Highlights

Colorado State Championships (CO): (released on ColoradotrackXC) 5A Boys Championship: If there were any doubters left, the Regis Jesuit boys put the doubts to rest with a very convincing run through the 5A boys field. Coronado was definitely impacted by a tough race for Dusty Solis, but even if Solis had come through in first, Coronado could not have overtaken Regis. Regis's fifth, Ryan Van Portfliet, finished in 17:01 to seal the victory for the Raiders. Two top-ten finishes from Danny Nicolls (15:56) and Brian Sokas (16:17) certainly didn't hurt the cause. Walter Schafer won the individual title, but not until after seeing a sizable lead at 2.1 miles shrink over the final mile and Connor Winter and Danny Nicolls closed the gap. 5A Girls Championship: Fort Collins continues to march on. All season long, no 5A girls team has been able to answer the Lambkins' strength all the way through the scoring five. State was no exception. Boulder's Kelsey Lakowske had a brilliant run to finish first (17:28). Teammate Sam Lewis was strong in fourth. Highlands Ranch put four girls in the top 17, but nobody could match the overall team balance of Fort Collins, who repeats as 5A girls state champions. Incidentally, the entire margin of victory for Fort Collins over second-place Boulder, was accounted for in the scores of the fifth runners for each team. The surprise of the top ten was probably Loveland's Kailie Hartman in fifth with a time of 18:32. 4A Boys Championship: Greeley West entered the season as the 4A favorite, but the season did not start especially well for the Spartans. As one might expect from Spartans, however, the team kept fighting back and that refusal to quit earned them the schools second state championship in the last three years. Kody Leach was the top finisher for West (8th, 16:26), but it was the 24-36-37 at 2-3-4 for the Spartans that brought the trophy back to Greeley. No other school had that kind of strength in the middle portion of their scoring lineup. 4A Girls Championship: One of the other big feel-good stories of the weekend focuses on 4A girls. I have no idea how much longer Larry Zaragoza intends to keep coaching, but he just added a huge milestone to his already-impressive list of accomplishments--winning boys and girls state titles at two different schools. The girls state championship was a first-ever for the Alamosa program and was earned against a strong field comprised of teams from Thompson Valley, Cheyenne Mountain, Evergreen, and Mullen. Nikki DeSouchet led the way for the Mean Moose with a third in 18:54. While Alamosa was cleaning up in the team competition, an incredible individual battle was waged up front between Highway 34 rivals Allie Parks of Greeley Central and Becky Schmitt of Thompson Valley. Once again, Parks had the answers, separating ever-so-slightly from Schmitt at the very end to take an 18:17 to 18:19 win. 3A Boys Championship: It will take a while for the glow to leave Salida. And that's the way it should be. Forgive me while I edge a little bit toward the personal here. Losing is always a test of inner strength and will, but I could not pick a finer program to lose to than Salida. Coach Wilcox and his assistants have very nicely demonstrated what investing time, love, and enthusiasm in youth can produce. Salida was very much a struggling cross country program going nowhere three years ago. A first state cross country title for a program that has had some very good individuals in years past, but never a team like this. Job well done, Spartans! 3A Girls Championship: For the girls, it was an up-front performance for the TCA Titans. After Kaitlin Hanenburg turned back the early challenge from Middle Park's Sam Berggren, it was all maroon up front as Hanenburg, Emily LaValley, and Shelby Stableford grabbed the top three places. Two more Titans finished in the top ten. Kaiti Davis of Salida (again--demonstrating that Salida's success is definitely not restricted to the boys' team) put in the surprise finish of the top 10, finishing 7th in 19:19. In a bit of a role reversal from last year, Estes Park edged Salida for second. Colorado Springs Christian was the overachiever among 3A girls, finishing seventh as a team and well above their ranking.

 Meet Summary:  There was no particular point that La Salle sophomore Molly Keating felt she had the race won during the Rhode Island Interscholastic Leagues State Cross-Country Championships on Sunday. It wasnt until she broke the tape a winner, that her mind was at ease.

Truth be told, the diminutive harrier essentially sewed up the title by the first mile. Taking a sizable cushion at that checkpoint, Keating was never seriously challenged the remainder of the way, capturing the individual crown with a time of 18 minutes, 28.01 seconds for the five-kilometer distance at Ponaganset High.

As far as the team crown, it was Keating and La Salle that took home the plaque for the second straight year holding off a determined Barrington squad, 42-49.

In the boys meet, Bishop Hendricken senior Jake Sienko claimed the top prize with a time of 15:56.92. Sienko and the Hawks earned the team hardware, copping their seventh title since 2000 with a convincing 49-91 triumph over runner-up Barrington.

Keating, who finished 12th as a ninth-grader at last years state meet, went though her first mile in 5:47. She gradually pulled away from her competitors and finished more than 100 meters ahead of second-place finisher Abigail Jones of Barrington. Jones recorded a time of 18:54.38.

I always try to take out the first mile fast. I was just worried about the second and the third mile and trying to keep it up, Keating said. But it wasnt until I crossed the finish line that I felt I won. I wasnt sure how close anyone was.

Keating gained confidence for the states a week earlier when she posted a nearly 50-second win at the Class A Championships, which she won in 18:46.97.

I thought before the class meet that maybe Id have shot, Keating said. When I won the class meet, it got my hopes up a little. I really tried to win today.

Sienkos win was just another impressive performance by the talented harrier, a seventh-place finisher at last years meet. He was third at the Great American Cross-Country Festival in North Carolina on Oct. 3, just seven seconds off the pace with his 15:20 clocking for the 5K race. The splendid senior was also second at the Manchester (N.H.) Invitational on Sept. 26 and had a sixth-place showing at the Manhattan (N.Y.) Invitational on Oct. 10.

An Indian Summer with the temperature above 60 degrees greeted runners for Sundays race.

I felt good the whole way and the weather was perfect, Sienko said. 

The race was without East Greenwich Nick Ross, who is nursing an injury. Back in August, Ross was one of the pre-race favorites to win this years state meet. He was sixth last year.

Sienko still had some stiff competition, most notably Cranston West junior Robert Allen. Allen, a fifth-place finisher in 2008, battled Sienko for two-thirds of the race. He eventually claimed the runner-up spot with his time of 16:10.48.

He hung with me for two miles and then I was able to pull away, Sienko said. I was just pushing it.

Virginia State Championships (VA):  Complete Coverage Article | Very poor and muddy course conditions, which got progressively worse as the day went on. The largest classification Group AAA were the last races of the day. Times slowed by at least 15-20 seconds if not more based off last year's results in ideal course conditions. Temperature was ideal in the 50s with cloud cover, except for the last half of the Group AA girls when the sun came out and several runners struggled to get to the line including two of Blacksburg's key scorers.

Course record by Kathleen Stevens (17:34) of Blacksburg. Previous record 17:38 set last by Megan Marsico (2008 Foot Locker South runner-up). Twin sister Joanna Stevens was second in the Group AA girls race in 17:39.

Midlothian girls streak of 4 AAA state titles and Blacksburg girls streak of 3 AA titles are snapped by Lake Braddock and Hidden Valley respectively. Lake Braddock was the major upset of the day as their freshmen Sophie Chase led the charge literally with a hot pace to put herself in front and held on for a third place finish as Lake Braddock added a ninth state title to their rich history of state championship excellence. Hidden Valley had a slower team average than Blacksburg by 17 seconds, yet still found a way to win with five runners among the top 25.

No drama to determine boys team champions as Mountain View (AAA), Blacksburg (AA), and Clarke County (A) dominate their respective classifications with Mountain View posting a team average of 16:33.

Ted Richardson of James River won in a well packed AAA boys race till late with the day's fastest performance in 15:34 as Western Branch's Blake Theroux had made the move to break up the pack with 1200 meters to go and finished runner-up with a time of 15:38.

A thrilling finish for Group AA boys as early race leader Colin Mearns of Jamestown collapsed in the final 150 meters and Kyle King of Grafton seized upon the opportunity as the 16:01 winner.
