Baker girls take first among GOL teams at Ontario meet

Bulldog boys finished second among league rivals

The Baker girls finished second and the boys third Thursday at the Glen Crosby Invitational cross country meet in Ontario.

Among the Greater Oregon League teams competing in the race, Baker’s girls were first and the boys second.

Times were fairly slow atop the rolling, soft, long grass, said Suzy Cole, cross country coach at Baker High School.

Trevor Freese was the first Baker boy across the finish line. His 18:04 time was good enough for third place.

Melissa Clarke of Baker placed fourth in the girls race. Her time was 23:03.

The Baker girls’ score of 34 was 9 points better than GOL rival Ontario and 18 points better than La Grande. All five of  Baker’s scoring runners placed in the top 10.

The Baker boys’ total of 45 was 21 points behind La Grande’s, but 26 points ahead of host Ontario. Matt Rankin of Ontario won the race in 16:40.

Cole said her squad “still has some work to do” as it prepares for the district meet at La Grande later this month.

“This is the second phase of our season. We’ve been in school for a while, and it’s time to give it that extra push,” Cole said. “We’re going to work on our speed more.”

The Bulldogs’ next meet is Saturday, Oct. 11, in Richland, Wash. It’s a meet the team looks forward to, Cole said.



Baker girls: 4, Melissa Clarke, 23:03; 6, Felicia Schneider, 23:25; 7, Kori Rayborn, 24:27; 8, Annika Yates, 24:41; 9, Haley Adams, 25:26; 12, Charlotte Bowers, 26:14; 14, Leah Gerber, 26:456.

Baker boys: 3, Trevor Freese, 18:04; 8, Jake Sandefur, 19:18; 10, Kristian Krohn, 20:04; 11, Brandon Lowery, 20:06; 13, Jacob Payton, 20:11; 14, Skyler Young, 10:52; 15, Joe Anderson, 20:55.
