3A Girls State Cross Country
The 3A Girls State Championship cross-country race was certainly competitive as Ryann Smith of Rawlins battled it out with Ameya Eddy from Lander.
These were 2 of the strongest runners in 3A not only this season but last season too. Eddy made a charge and took the tape for the state championship in a time of 19:29.21. Smith was 2nd in 19:39.76 with Taylen Stinson of Cody 3rd in 19:47.12. Caprice Winn of Mountain View placed 4th and Zena Tapia of Worland was 5th.
In 2021, Eddy as a freshman placed 4th at the 3A cross country meet and also had a strong State Track meet back in May with a 2nd place finish in the 1600 meter run and a 2nd place finish in the 3200.
Cody repeated as the 3A girl's team champions with 58 points. The Fillies went 3-9-10 with last year's state champion, Ava Stafford in that 10-spot. Evanston was 2nd with 71 points, Powell 3rd with 109. Lander took 4th and Rawlins 5th.
