Baker’s Nic Maszk successfully defended his Greater Oregon League district championship, and the Baker boys claimed the team title as well Saturday at the district cross country meet at Eastern Oregon University at La Grande.

Maszk ran away from the boys field to claim the district crown with a time of 15:59.3, 28 seconds faster than the second-place runner.

“Nic put his stamp on the race right from the gun and his lead only got bigger as the race went on,” said Baker coach Mike Knutson.

The Baker boys topped Crook County 40-43 to win their second team title in three years. The Bulldogs last won the team championship in 2010.

“Most of our kids ran season bests,” Knutson said.

“A great accomplishment considering the wet, cold conditions. The boys ran aggressive and Ian Kron stepped up big time to help clinch the team title.”

Krohn placed 12th with a time of 17:50.7.

Evan Krohn was fifth with a time of 16:58.5, Connor Yates 13th (17:52.3), Nate Baeth 16th (18:06.8), Tyler Gassin 23rd (18:42.2), and Collin Hessel 25th (18:49.7).

TheBaker girls placed fifth in their half of the meet with 98 points. Crook County won the girls team title with 44 points.

Baker’s top individual girl was Sarah Spaugh, 10th with a time of 21:30.7.

“Sarah Spaugh was only a few positions away from earning a trip to state,” Knutson said.

“I expect her to return next year and lead this young girls team to state provided they put in the work over the summer.”

Kim Pettit was 24th (23:56.0), Katie Sandefur 27th (24:26.4), Charlie Carpenter 29th (24:51.7), Madeline Owen 31st (25:08.1), Anna Payton 33rd (25:43.5), and Mairyn Owen 34th (25:47.4).

Baker’s Cody Gyllenberg won the boys JV title with a time of 18:55.7.

Baker’s other JV runners were Micah Grammon fifth (19:23.6), Franklin Bowers seventh (20:04.9), Jacob Baxter ninth (20:41.0), Levi Farber 10th (20:52.4), Nick Anderson 12th (21:05.9), and Bryan Ames 13th (21:09.9).

The Baker varsity boys will compete at the Class 4A state meet Saturday at Lane Community College at Eugene.

The 4A boys race is scheduled to start at 11:50 a.m.

Spectator admission is $8 adults and $5 students.
