Kingman Academy runners take on the Laughlin hills

Today’s News-Herald

Despite runners complaining about the hills - and the repetition of the scenery - local cross country coaches said their athletes turned in some of the best performances of the season during the Laughlin Cross Country Invitational at Mountain View Park on Saturday.

For the girls, it was Lake Havasu City Lady Knights second with 69 points and the Bullhead City Mohave Lady Thunderbirds sixth with 154 in the large school division.

The Kingman Academy Lady Tigers were fifth with 113 and the Laughlin Lady Cougars were sixth with 114 in small school racing.

Parker Laughlin and Kingman Academy scored three medalists between the two schools.

Laughlin's Joslyn Rea was 16th in 26:35.7, Kingman Academy's Lily Young was 17th (26:42.2) and Allison Finkbeiner was 19th (26:46.9).

"Considering this was our first meet of the year, we did well today," said KAHS head coach Heather Amenhauser. "With this level of competition at this event, it was good eye-opening experience for my runners. And to have two girls and three boys medal is a good showing."

For the boys, the T-birds finished third with 84 points and the Fighting Knights fifth with 97 points in large school competition.

Mohave had four runners medal - Joseph Perez in 11th in 18:28.8, Pedro Quintero in 16th in 19:26.5, Jesus Lozoya in 19th in 19:36.9 and Brady Renner in 20th in 19:37.2.

The River Valley Dust Devils took third with 92 points, the Parker Broncs fifth with 132 and the Kingman Academy Tigers sixth with 141 in the small school race. Laughlin did not qualify for a team score.

River Valley's top finisher was Ryan Wright in seventh for small school in 18:19.7. Parker¹s Aaron Herder was 12th in 19:06.6, Kingman Academy¹s Thomas Easter was 14th in 19:39.1 and River Valley's Isai Lamas was 18th in 20:37.4. Tanner Hessom was 19th in 20:40.2 and Brandon Clevinger was 21st in 20:49.5.

Laughlin's top boys runner was Josh Yepez in 32nd in 22:32.2.

Mohave, Parker and River Valley will join Kingman and Lake Havasu for the Windsor Beach Multi at Lake Havasu State Park on Wednesday.
