Boys and girls cross country team took first in pre-region, and the girls finished 1st in region over the weekend, while boys finished 2nd behind Spanish Fork.
After being asked what his plan was going into a race, Garrett Faragher, a senior at MV, responded "I just wanted to hang onto the front pack for as long as I could."
Faragher and Spencer Standing, a Mountain View sophomore, led the Pre-region race up until the last half mile. Ryan Raff, a nationally ranked runner from Lehi, took first at pre-region, and faragher and standing followed.
The Lady Bruins also did well, with 7 girls finishing in the to 10.
Alissa Fielding said, "The team plan going into pre-region was to get into a good pace first mile then stat to pick up pace and start to pass people in mile 2 and 3."
Whether it was the plan that worked, or it all just working out, in the end, it was a success.
Winning state for the boys team may not be an easy task with Stansbury High School and Hurricane High School in the way, and the girls will have to face down pine view, but with state creeping closer, the ruins are hoping to come home with some new hardware to put in the trophy case
