Baker edged Ontario 27-30 to claim the boys team championship at the Baker Invitational cross country meet Thusday at Quail Ridge Golf Course.

Burns was third with an incomplete team.

Evan Krohn placed second to lead the Bulldogs with a time of 17:55, four seconds behind individual champion Rigo Sanchez of Ontario.

Baker’s other boys finishers were Ian Krohn (18:08) fourth, Taylor Hawes (19:03) seventh, Nate Baeth (19:50) ninth, Ben Spaugh (19:57) 10th, Cody Gyllenberg (20:07) 11th, and Franklin Bowers (21:16) 18th.

Baker also won the girls team title, running with the only complete squad at the meet.

Sarah Spaugh was Baker’s top finisher, placing third with a time of 23:17.

Other Baker girls finishers were Matea Huggins (23:23) fourth, Anna Payton (24:56) sixth, Grace Huggins (25:11) ninth, Josie Stearns (26:48) 10th and Katie Sandefur (27:16) 11th.

“Given the meet’s small size we really approached this meet as a workout,” said Baker coach Mike Knutson.

“You can’t race at a top level every week of the season so this was a good opportunity to run a low-key meet the week before the district championships. 

“We have many athletes on both the girl’s and boy’s teams fighting injury and illness so hopefully an easy week will help us to get healthy before next Saturday,” Knutson said.

The district meet is Oct. 26 at Milton-Freewater.
