The weather was near perfect on Saturday for the Wyoming State High School Cross-Country Championships at the Veteran Affairs Hospital Grounds in Sheridan.
The starting gun sounded across the grounds as the day began with the 2A girls race at 10:30 a.m. Mia Vrooman ran her best race of the season, crossing the finish line in 25:50. She took 35th out of 46 runners. Iris Reyes was right with her entering the chute in 26:03 to take 37th. Hannah Schadewald took 39th in 26:31. Maren Glasser stopped the watch at 27:43 in 43rd to help the Lady Panthers take seventh.
Later in the day, the 2A boys toed the starting line and ran their final race of the season. As he did all year, senior Jayden Vasquez led the Panthers. He ran a personal best of 18:36 and took 14th out of 60 runners. Jacob Goodrich paced his first mile conservatively at 6:46 toward the back of the field but gained ground, moving up in position during the second mile and surged ahead to set a personal best of 20:22 in 38th. Luis Navarro took 40th in 20:34. Preston Seamands met goal of finishing under the 21-minute mark and earned a personal best of 20:55 in 42nd. Right with Seamands was Hunter Ferguson in 43rd at 20:58, which was also a personal best. Wright’s other senior, Kc Krieter, concluded his high school cross-country career with a PR of 21:27 in 47th. Alex Knight also snagged a PR, improving his time by a minute at 21:31 in 48th. The Panthers finished the season with an eighth place finish.
