Quick turnaround for San Juan Broncos at unique Hideout meet
The Bronco harriers didn’t have to travel far for their last race of the regular season. Monticello high school hosted the Milk Jug Scramble at the Hideout Golf Course on Monday, October 11.
This, however, was no ordinary meet. Monticello coach Jeff Hunt switched up the usual format of each school competing against each other, and instead assembled unique teams comprised of runners from various schools according to their rankings.
Although they weren’t competing as a team and they were running on tired legs from the Chicken Creek Challenge in Mancos, CO only two days before, several San Juan runners had great races.
On the boys side, Edward Lyman was the first finisher from San Juan. He came in second place overall and completed the race only 11 seconds behind the first-place finisher from Whitehorse.
Five other San Juan runners also finished in the top ten: Spencer Jensen (fourth), Abe Lyman (fifth), Logan Keith (seventh), Ryan McCullough (ninth), and Toby Ward (tenth). Daniel Jolley wasn’t far behind Ward with an impressive 11th place finish.
On the girls side, Ella Lyman was the third female to cross the finish line. Like the boys team, she was joined in the top ten by several other San Juan runners.
Sofie Hook was next to come in after Lyman with a sixth-place finish. She was followed closely by Saylor Perkins who posted a ninth-place result.
In 11th, 12th, and 13th and rounding out the female runners from San Juan were Taryn Nielson, Megan Black, and Nadia Armajo.
Next up for the Broncos is their region meet this Thursday, October 21 in Mt. Carmel, UT. The Broncos return to the Thunderbird Golf Course hoping to qualify for the 2A State Championship on Wednesday, October 27.
