Over 1,400 runners from 47 different teams converged on the Valley Complex in Taylorsville on Saturday for the Border Wars cross county meet.
It was wet and chilly at times, but it was a great chance for many of the runners to simulate the conditions they’ll potentially face next month at the Utah high school state meets.
In the featured races of the morning, it was Mountain Ridge’s girls and Riverton’s boys who ended up claiming the team titles in what proved to be competitive races throughout.
On the boys side, Riverton finished first with 80 points, followed by Farmington in second with 105 points and Desert Hills in third with 135 points.
Farmington’s Spencer Bradshaw finished first with a time of 15:24.84, followed closely by Andrew Jensen of Bountiful in 15:26.12.
Mountain Ridge’s girls won the team title scoring 56 points, with Springville in second with 76 points.
Westlake’s Shelby Jensen won the individual title finishing in 18:15.48, with Bonneville’s Sienna Barton in second with a time of 18:24.94.
