PMG PHOTO: RALEIGH EMERSON - Molalla harrier Anika Jenson placed sixth overall the 3A/2A/1A state championship meet.

Molalla's girls team finished 11th overall with a team total of 217 points and a team average time of 22:44. Anika Jenson led the team with a top 10 finish, snagging sixth with a time of 20:01.7. Twin sister Annalyse Jenson finished 14th overall with a time of 20:37.1.

"My game plan was to try and take first because I know my PR is good enough for that, but I didn't execute it well this time," Anika said. "I'm very happy — I'm hard on myself all the time because I want to be first, but I'm happy."
