Lee Williams dominates at boys cross country meet
KINGMAN - Lee Williams High continued its mastery over Colorado River Region teams in boys cross country when the Vols won Wednesday's Kingman High Multi by 40 points.
Lee Williams scored with all five runners in the top 15 at the seven-team event, including Brendon Allred's first-place finish. Allred (18 minutes, 59 seconds) was nearly a minute faster than the second-place runner, his teammate Peyton Cardiff (19:57). Zachary Moyd finished fourth, Cayden Robles was 10th and Zack Tempert finished 15th.
"The kids did a great job," said LWHS cross country coach Joan Abraham. "Brendon is looking forward to the meets over the next two weeks that will have different schools to compete against."
Kingman finished second, Lake Havasu was third and Mohave fourth. Parker came in fifth, Kingman Academy sixth and River Valley rounded out the pack.
Christian Barrios (20:29) led Kingman with a sixth-place finish. Thomas Bigelow (12), Jonathon Hunt (17), Enrique Ayala (18), and Jesse Lopez (19) scored for Kingman.
"We're getting better and that is all I ask," said KHS cross country coach Anne Bathauer. "We're taking our lumps this year. However, we only have one senior making an impact."
Sam Skankey (21:16) led Kingman Academy, finishing ninth.
Havasu won the girls race ahead of Lee Williams, Mohave and Kingman.
Alondra Correa (26:48) led the Lady Vols, finishing third. Kingman Academy's best finisher was Alexis Whalen (27:48) in eighth place, and Celene Lucero White led Kingman (29:11).
All three of the local teams will race at the Mark Weston Invitational at 8 a.m. Saturday in Lake Havasu City.
