Peterson shines in Canby XC four-way
Though the Canby girls cross country team didn't score in Wednesday's Three Rivers League four-way meet at Tualatin High, they did get the highest finisher of the day.
Ashley Peterson snagged an individual second place finish over the 5,000 meter course, clocking a time of 20 minutes, 12 seconds.
"Ashley Peterson had a tremendous race," said head coach Tom Millbrooke.
She would be the only Cougar girl to compete in the varsity race.
On the boys side, the team race was a close one with Tualatin winning at 45 points, followed by Oregon City with 52 and Canby at 53. Lake Oswego was a distant fourth with 72 points.
Maddox Oliver led the way for the boys, finishing sixth overall in a time of 17:27. He as followed across the finish line by Joel Ibarra (9th, 17:39), Matthew Dewar (11th, 18:02), Tommy O'Neil (13th, 18:24), Jack Joyce (14th, 18:27), Jared Moon (17th, 18:38), and Rhett Smith (20th, 18:55).
"The boys depth was excellent. Maddox Oliver had his best race," said Millbrooke.
There were some other high points, including freshman Alex Smith winning the co-ed 3,000 meter race in 12:57.
At this point, Canby goes into its spring break with plans for a Three Rivers League district meet on March 31.
