It was a fast-pace weekend for 22 varsity Coconino High School runners, who headed to the Woodbridge Invitational in California for a chance to run on the nation’s fastest cross country course.

More than 300 teams consisting of 15,000 athletes traveled from around the country to participate in the 37th annual cross country classic. 

The Coconino Panthers girls team performed well, tying for third and fourth place down to the sixth runner, with Woodlyn Smith and her 5K time of 17.52 leading the way. She was followed by her fellow Panthers Kaelyn Ashley, Hope Saxton, Lilia Tassenari, Jordan Brockman, Stephanie Harkins and Kyra Crank.

The boys team finished eighth overall, supported by Sam Lasley’s 16:00.3 and close finishes from Taylor Taliman, Alex Petersen, John Ulibarri, Adam Petersen, Cameron Toothaker and Shane Charlie.

Overall, the Panthers improved their times on this new, flat and fast course.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
