The Reno boys and McQueen girls stole the spotlight at the annual Reed Invitational Cross Country meet Friday afternoon.

The Reno boys put four finishers in the Top 10 to win the boys team title, scoring 40 points to best second-place Douglas and its 64 points. On the girls’ side, McQueen saw its top three runners finish in the Top 8 en route to ending with 39 points, 14 points better than second-place Damonte Ranch (53).

Reno’s Jordan Cardenas blew away the boys field, posting a time of 16:18. Second-place runner Andrew Cobourn of Douglas was 30 seconds behind.

Reed wrapped a fifth-place finish among nine boys teams competing Friday. Spanish Springs did not field a complete team. Schools must field five participants to compete as a team.

Cody Forman paced the Reed contingent, running to a time of 18:14 on the 5K course. He finished seventh overall. The rest of the Raiders’ team finished as follows: Brandon Robbins (12 - 18:34), Ben Stevens (31 - 19:44), Blake Campbell (53 - 21:21) and Matt Cain (54 - 21:22). Shane Goodson (56 - 21:25) and Wyatt Williams (62 - 22:07) were Reed’s sixth and seventh runners, whose times did not count toward the RHS team total

Spanish Springs’ Jacob Fleming was the top male finisher from a Sparks school. He ran to a fifth-place effort thanks to a time of 17:54. Herbert Melendez (60 - 22:01) and Kris Harrell (70 - 23:49) also finished for Spanish Springs.

In the girls’ race, Douglas’ Lindsey Adams cruised to the individual win. She put up a time of 19:42 to beat the rest of the field. Spanish Springs junior Katie Peters was second overall at 20:17.

Neither Spanish Springs nor Reed fielded complete girls teams. Spanish Springs had two other runners while Reed had two total.

After Peters, Spanish Springs had the ninth and 10th place runners respectively in Angela Dela Cruz (21:33) and Madison McHenry (21:44).

Reed’s two runners were Emily Carr (31 - 23:44) and Ellen Wilson (38 - 25:19).
