Del Oro’s cross country teams continued to run well last Wednesday in Grass Valley as the Golden Eagles turned in some strong individual and team efforts at the Sierra Foothill League’s No. 2 meet, hosted by Nevada Union. In the boys varsity, Del Oro’s Trevor Stephens checked in with one of his best runs of the season as he mastered the hilly Nevada Union course to take first place honors in a time of 15:55. Del Oro’s boys scored 85 points to finish in third place behind Woodcreek (50) and Rocklin (53). In the girls varsity race, the Lady Eagles showed off their magnificent depth once again as the Black and Gold placed their top six runners over the first 11 places in scoring 36 points to outdistance second place Granite Bay’s 59 markers. Leading Del Oro’s girls efforts were Lizzie Meredith (20:14), who placed fourth; Megan Gentes (20:26), who was sixth; and Ashley Dessert (20:36), who was seventh. Also having a hand in the win for Del Oro were Dominique Tristant (20:42), who placed ninth; Maddy Lyons (20:48), who was 10th; and Maddy Montgomery (20:59), who took 11th. Del Oro’s lower level teams also enjoyed SFL wins as the frosh-soph boys mustered 27 points to easily outdistance second place Woodcreek, with 59 points. The frosh-soph girls tallied 23 points to runaway from second place Rocklin’s 54 markers.
