After solid showing at relays, Demon harriers set for regionals

The Glenwood Springs High School cross country team had a solid showing in its final prep for this weekend’s regional meet in Delta.

Alex Tiernan led the Demons to a third-place finish at the Montrose Relays with a 5-kilometer time of 16 minutes, 44 seconds. Tory Garling and Zac Winstead both finished under 19 minutes with times of 18:23 and 18:57, respectively.

On the girls’ side, Amanda Alberico had the fastest time for the Demons, finishing with a 5K time of 20:33. Sabrina Rice finished in 21:23, while Abbey Walters put up a time of 21:54.

The Demons trained hard last week and are recovering and storing for Saturday’s regional meet in Delta, according to head coach Joe Mollica.

Seven members of the boys team and seven of the girls will compete in the meet. Glenwood has a young squad with all the qualifiers being freshmen or sophomores except two.

Tiernan, the lone junior boy leads the boys squad, while freshman Tory Garling and sophomore Zac Winstead could also compete for a state meet berth.

Alberico, a freshman, is the best hope for the girls team. Sophomores Sabrina Rice and Cassidy Willey, along with junior Abbey Walters, have also had solid seasons.
