Scottsbluff boys have perfect district meet

In cross country the lowest score wins the meet. A pefect score for five runners would be 10-points, and that is exactly what the Scottsbluff Bearcats did Thursday at the B-4 District Meet at the West Wind Golf Course in Ogallala.

Jim Barker's crew, which finished second at state last season and won it all in 2011, had the top five finishers, paced by last year's individual champ Matthew Barraza. He was followed across the finish line by Anthony Parra, Ben Willis-Teff, Shane Burkey and Brendan Taedter.

Lexington runners took the next three spots on the way to a second place team finish. Gering took third to qualify for next week's state meet in Kearney.

Steven Jaurez and Jacey Shaul placed in the top 15 to pace the Bulldogs.

Gering and Scottsbluff tied for the top spot in the girls division. The Bulldogs got the first place trophy with a better fifth place runner finish than the Bearcats.

Scottsbluff did have the meet medalist in Taylor Muncie. She was one of three Bearcat runners in the top ten. Shayleigh James was seventh and Claire Holsinger finished ninth.

Gering also had three runners in the top ten, and four in the top 15.
Rebekah Rawlings led the way for the Bulldogs with a fifth place finish. Kali Rimington was sixth and Jerilyn Laws was 10th. Hadley Kirk was 14th.
