Alpine Christian advance 7 runners to state meet

ASPEN – The Alpine Christian Academy girls cross-country team qualified for this week’s Class 3A state meet in Colorado Springs and finished in a first-place tie in the team standings at Saturday’s regional meet.

Ashley Eaton, a Basalt High School senior, had the best time among the Alpine Christian girls. Her 21 minutes, 39 second finish earned Eaton third place.

Freshman Amy Lund was eighth at 22:36. Kate Wilson finished 11th, Sofie Stenstadvold was 18th. Whitney Lund came in 23rd place.

Alpine Christian and Gunnison tied for first in the team standings with 40 points each. The Cowboys were given the team title on a higher finish by their fifth runner.

In the boys division, Alpine Christian finished sixth in the team standings and had two runners advance to state.

Sophomore Collin Stewart, a student at Roaring Fork High, took fourth place in 18:46. Teammate Keane Karnan, a senior at Basalt, finished 15th.

Eaton, Wilson, Stenstadvold, Steward and Karnan run for Alpine Christian because their respective schools do not field cross-country teams.
