Senior Paul Knight at Durango High School, and Alamosa’s Joshua Medina sprinted to the finish line after 5 kilometers of racing at the 4-Corners Cross Country Classic. Medina came flying up behind Knight after the final turn, and it was an all-out race across the line. Knight came through first in 16 minutes, 32 seconds, two seconds in front of Medina. He collapsed to the ground in victory after a difficult, hot day on soft grass.

Aiden Quayle gave DHS another in the top five. He finished in 17:13. Damian Frausto of DHS finished eighth in 17:55, one spot ahead of Montezuma-Cortez’s top runner John Whyte, who crossed the line in 18:14. Edgar Martinez of Mancos placed 11th in 18:43.

The result capped off a strong day for the Durango High School boys team, which won the meet with 33 points. Alamosa was second with 44, and Pagosa Springs placed fourth with 86. Meet host Bayfield placed fifth with 122 points, seven in front of sixth-place Montezuma-Cortez. Dolores was seventh with 165 points, and Ignacio rounded out the nine-team field with 172 points.

It was a similar tune for the Durango High girls, who won the meet with 20 points. Alamosa finished with 73, two points clear of Pagosa Springs. Ignacio placed fifth with 99 points, and Mancos was sixth with 123.

It was a thrilling finale between Alamosa freshman Sarah DeLaCerda and Durango junior Angela McManus. DeLaCerda would take the win in 20:25, while McManus was second in 20:33. Flint called it McManus’ best run of the season.
