Selsor gets preview of 4A West regional championship course
PALISADE – A little knowledge could be all Katrina Selsor needs to become the individual girls division champion at this week’s Class 4A West regional cross country meet.”The first mile you think is easy, then it gets harder,” the Glenwood Springs High School freshman said of the Riverbend Park course.Odd – she didn’t seem to have too much trouble running the course on Friday.In her first meet on the course, Selsor took second place, completing her run in 19 minutes, 49 seconds. Her time was 12 seconds back of overall girls winner Erika Ghent from Battle Mountain.”I thought that I could stay up with (Ghent) in the second mile,” said Selsor. “But it just didn’t quite work out.”Considering the third-place Demons and the girls meet-champion Huskies return this week, it makes for an interesting showdown.Battle Mountain earned their team title when four of their runners finished 14th place or higher, good for a division-best score of 37. Glenwood, who totaled 96 points, had three other runners complete the course among the top 25 times.Amanda Alberico took 11th place in 21:18. Sharaya Selsor, Katrina’s older sister, came in at 21:49 to finish 19th. Whitney Setterberg followed with a 21st-place mark of 21:54.Glenwood’s Ryan Ward had the fastest time among the Demons boys with a 25th place time of 18:34.Area schools Basalt and Grand Valley, who are involved with the Class 3A regionals Saturday in Aspen, also had a presence at Friday’s meet.The Longhorns finished second as a team in the girls meet and were fourth in the boys meet.Basalt runners Amy Lund (20:38) and Collin Stewart (17:16) both placed fifth individually, in their respective meets.Grand Valley’s Katie Bryan (21:30) was 13th in the girls meet.
