Molalla boys place 10th at unique state run
In a makeshift state cross country meet, the Molalla Indians boys team snagged 10th place finish at the April 10 race.
The meet, created by coaches across the Class 4A ranks and held at Marist High School, provided a nice finish to a very different season. While not officially sanctioned by the OSAA, for all intents and purposes it was the state championship race for 2021.
Molalla's scored 252 points to finish in 10th.
Riley Reynolds led the Molalla effort with a 42nd place finish in a time of 18 minutes, 23.2 seconds. Right behind him in 43rd position was Noah Roth (18:25.6). They were followed by Clay Sperl (60th, 19:16.2) and Kadyn Eaves (61st, 19:27.8) and Colten Strohmeyer (69th, 19:49.4) as point scorers. Also competing were Osten Terry (84th, 21:22.7) and Clayton Huitt (85th, 21:29.7).
Siuslaw would claim the boy's team title with 70 points, followed by Philomath (77) and Sisters (81).
