Steamboat cross-country tackles challenging course at invitational
September 11, 2011
Times were expected to be slower at the Husky Cross-Country Invitational at Beaver Creek.
With a course that featured plenty of uphill, Steamboat Springs High School coach Andy Reust encouraged his runners to run for place and not time.
"It was a very, very tough course," he said. "The first mile was uphill, and it was a long singletrack, too."
Despite falling in the first mile, Asher Rohde paced the Sailors in fifth place. Scott Powers was ninth, and Colton Lewer was 20th. On the girls side, Meg O'Connell was 31st, and Bailey Pugh was 33rd.
The team next competes at the Liberty Bell Invitational at Heritage High School on Friday.
