The Taft 7-12 cross country team turned in some quick times at their final meet before Districts during a two mile jaunt around the Lincoln City campus.

Oct. 23 was senior night for the Taft harriers as they welcomed county foe Toledo for a two-mile duel meet.

The Tigers had four girls runners take to the course last Wednesday including senior winner Autumn Ellis, who clocked a quick time of 13:17. In second was fellow senior Brooke Orendorff at 14:50. Finishing fourth was sophomore Kaydince Beach and fifth place went to senior Alani Cabal.

As a group the Lady Tigers beat out the Boomers to claim a first place plaque.

In the boys race, senior Lucas Hindman nearly broke the 11 minute mark at 11:11 to claim first place. Hindman was followed by junior Rafael Perez Del Valle at 11:35 and sophomore Brayan Mateo at 12:05, as Taft took the top three spots.

In fifth place was freshman Eli Jones at 13:20 and fellow freshman Angelo Cruz Garcia finished sixth at 13:42.

Taft collectively scored 17 points beating out Toledo’s 38 points to claim first at the dual meet.

Taft now preps for the District 2 Championships on Oct. 31 at Cheadle Lake Park in Lebanon.
