SHERIDAN — Sheridan High School’s boy’s cross country team placed eighth out of 11 at the Wayne Chaney Memorial Cross Country Invitational in Gillette Friday. First place went to Laramie High School.
The fastest Bronc finisher in the varsity 5K race was Taylor Bruso, who finished fifth overall in 17:20.84.
“He was the star of the show for us,” said coach Art Baures. “It was a good performance for all the kids. Their times were all faster from a year ago.”
“With our boys team, we’re young , but we’re starting to work together in the races. We’re getting better all the time.
Bauers said he is encouraged by the team’s efforts and attitude.
The girls did not have enough varsity runners to qualify for a team score. Janika Sweeney led the Lady Broncs in the varsity 5K with a time of 22:14.50.
Bauers explained most of SHS runners are freshmen and sophomores who competed at the junior varsity level.
“We’re having them gain experience and confidence at the JV level. We’ll move them up to the varsity level, but that’s a process.”
Xiomara Robinson placed 5th out of 148 in the girls’ junior varsity 5K race. Her time was 22:42.83.
