On Friday at Pine Meadows Golf Course in Lewistown, the Lady Loco cross country team continued their dominance of the Eastern A Conference by winning the Eastern A XC Divisional Fall Classic going away, taking the top four individual spots and five of the top–10 overall. Andria Mourich successfully defended her 2019 Divisional Fall Classic title with a time of 20:24.24.

After taking second behind Custer County in the first meet of the season on August 29, the Laurel girls have won every meet.

Coach James Haskins said, “I was really proud of the way they came out and competed in less than ideal conditions. The girls worked all summer long and thus have been strong all season.”

Carly Cook took 2nd individually with a time of 21:02.24, Grace Timm 3rd with 21:04.17, Ruby Smith 4th with 21:05.55 and Lauren Taylor rounded out the varsity team in 10th place with 21:57.95. All five girls received All–Conference honors.

“They are running with a lot of confidence right now but they have remained humble because they all realize that there is still work to be done. Winning this next race will require everything they have left and I know these girls are willing to lay it all on the line,” Coach Haskins said.

On the boys side, the team took 4th with Dylan Paris finishing in 8th place individually and grabbing All–Conference honors with a time of 17:53.31. Colston Trostle was 13th (18:55.76), Anthony Van Ballegooyen 21st (19.28.24), Owen Foote 24th (19:34.70), Pason Gage 25th (19:43.05), Caleb Trostle 30th (19:57.41) and Ethan Johnson 33rd (20:14.20).

Coach Haskins said, “The boys ran fantastic at Divisionals. Last year they placed 4th and graduated the top two kids from that team. So, to come back the following year and still take 4th says a lot about how hard they have all worked and how promising their future is. The boys are sending three freshmen to state this year.”

The Class A State Championship starts on Friday in Kalispell with the girls at 10:30 a.m. and the boys at 11:30 a.m.
