LITTLETON — The weather was great during the Oct. 11 Jeffco League 4A and 5A races. However, rain and snow during the week left a few damp places on the course.
In the 4A boys race, Green Mountain sophomore Grahm Tuohy-Gaydos won the individual title and Golden edged Littleton for the team crown.
There were two familiar faces to win the 5A and 4A girls races. Lakewood senior Carley Bennett was all smiles as she crossed the finish line to win her third individual league title. Wheat Ridge senior Tiya Chamberlin has been in the mix for four years and won her second straight 4A Jeffco title.
Valor (5A) and D’Evelyn (4A) came away with the girls team titles.
“Every year we are one of the best leagues,” said Chamberlin, who is the daughter of longtime Wheat Ridge coaches Scott and Judy Chamberlin. “I have total respect for these girls and that is what pushed me to that next level. Coming here I knew I was going to face some serious competition.”
The next serious competition will be at regionals next week. Jeffco teams will fan out across the state in an attempt to qualify for the state cross country championships to be held Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Norris Penrose Events Center in Colorado Springs.
