The cross-country team was a a bit off its game during its meet at Granite Regional Park, Oct. 12.
However, in their 5K races sophomore Elinor Hilton finished despite being stung five times by hornets, and freshman Jaelan Trapp achieved his fastest time of the year. Hilton managed to cross the finish line in 30:32, and Trapp earned a personal record of 23:39.
Sophomores Adam Ketchum and Hilton said that they did okay in their individual races, but that they could have done better overall.
The next cross-country meet will be on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Willow Hills Reservoir in Folsom.
The boys’ soccer team lost to Faith Christian, 4-1, on Oct. 11, after tying their last match.
This was the team’s first league game loss, bringing the record to 4-1-1.
Junior Ethan Ham scored the Cavs’ only goal.
The team was missing seniors Patrick Talamantes, who will be out for the rest of the season due to injury, and Eric Hilton, who was attending a state journalism convention.
“Patrick’s a huge part of our defense, and because he’s out for the season (Faith Christian players) easily got through our defense,” freshman Christian Van Vleck said.
The boys will play Lutheran at home on Tuesday, Oct. 15. They will play Buckingham on Homecoming, Friday, Oct. 18. The Cavs have beaten the Knights twice this season.
