Glenwood’s Mansfield conquers the field in Cortez
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado
Leading virtually from start to finish, Glenwood Springs’ Andrew Mansfield won Saturday’s Cortez Invitational cross country meet.
The junior clocked in at 17 minutes, 7 seconds at the site of the Oct. 23 Class 4A Region 5 regional meet.
“Andrew had an awesome race,” Demons coach Mike Schneiter said. “He led basically start to finish. He had some guys hanging with him the whole way and then really just left them in the dust at the end. He did a great job.”
Mansfield had high-finishing company in the form of teammate Ryan Buchanan, who took sixth in 17:59. Vinson Marr placed 13th (18:28), Ian Edquist 26th (19:05) and Colton Witherell 38th (19:57).
As a team, the Glenwood boys nabbed third place behind second-place Delta and meet champ Piedra Vista (N.M.).
On the girls side, Jenna Brown paced the Demons with a sixth-place finish. She finished up with a time of 21:53. McKenzie Hill took eighth (21:57), Lily Thorsen 13th (22:41), Michelle Thrun 29th (24:19) and Rebecca Carcaterra 31st (24:30). Cari Barber finished close behind with a time of 24:44.
“Those are great results for the girls,” Schneiter said. “Those top three girls have been running fast all year.”
