Canby boys, led by Maddox Oliver, finished third at the TRL championship race, punching their state ticket

The best of the Three Rivers League gathered at Oregon City High School to race for placings and state qualifications Oct. 27. When the mud had dried, the Canby Cougars boys team was one of the top dogs.

The Cougars qualified as a team by scoring 82 points, good enough for third behind Lakeridge (48) and Tualatin (73). The top three teams punch their ticket to Lane Community College on Nov. 6 for the state meet.

Leading the way for the Cougars was Maddox Oliver, who traversed the 5,000-meter course in 17 minutes, 0.11 seconds, good enough for sixth place overall.

He was followed through the chute by Tommy O'Neil in 12th place (17:21.94), Joel Ibarra in 17th (17:43.96), Jack Joyce in 19th (17:49.76) and Andrew Dewar in 28th (18:08.91) to round out the team scorers.

Rhett Smith would clock a time of 18:34.60, good enough for 38th place, and Ryan Petterson would round out the Canby contingent with a 45th place finish in 19:00.87.

The Canby girls fielded a full scoring team in the meet, finishing eighth with 242 points. Leading the way was Kali Lucas in 42nd position with a time of 22:20.28. She was followed by Kaitlyn Doman in 47th (22:49.58), Lexy Perez (50th, 24:45.53), Laela Wood (24:56.56), Melia Stoddart (52nd, 25:46.83), and Rashlee Bael (53rd, 25:58.22). "It was a solid team effort," coach Tom Millbrooke said in the aftermath of the races. "We competed well in all races with 11 of our JV boys and girls running season's bests in less than ideal weather conditions. I'm proud of the runners for hanging in throughout the season, working hard and improving."
