Wheatridge Middle School seventh grader Mallory Boden set a new school record in the one mile. Her mile run, completed in 6:13 minutes, highlighted the lady Mustangs’ performance at the Celebration Park Cross Country Invitational last week.
Boden’s school record time was good enough for a seventh place medal. Meanwhile, Mitch Lumley placed seventh in the boys’ eighth grade two mile race in a time of 12:25 minutes.
Ashlyn Bell set a one-mile personal best in 6:23 minutes. She was followed by McKenna Ensley, Elexis Herbst, Bethany Stuart, Rachel Stuart, Brendan Calahan, and Elizabeth Noll, who each set personal bests during the event. Lauren Simpson finished the race in 7:06 minutes. Kaeden Elber, Hunter Meyer, and Cole Yokely also competed for WMS in the cross country event.
Eighth grade competitors in the two mile included Shelby Baldwin, Chase Eccles, Jackson Edwards, Triston Gibson and Sebastian Wingfield.
