Redskins Run at Rim Rock

KSCB News - September 28, 2015 6:51 am

The Liberal Redskin cross country teams traveled to Lawrence, Kansas Saturday to compete at

the Rim Rock Classic. With over 150 schools from 9 different states competing in three different

divisions the Redskins were not only challenged by the competition but by a course known for its beauty

and its many tough hills for the runners. Both Redskin teams ran in the Crimson division which is

intended for most large size schools, good medium size schools, and strong small schools.

The girl’s team competed in a field of 40 teams. Camryn Slatten got off to a slow start but

quickly started making her way through the crowd as she ran her way to a podium finish with a time of

20:11 in 10


place. Saw Ahmara was the next Redskin to cross the line with a time of 21:30 in 53



Yanelly Jurado was the 100


runner to complete the course in a time of 22:24. While eight seconds

behind Jurado was Kelsey Ramsey in 110


place. Chloe Alling took the last scoring position for the

Redskins in a time of 23:17 in 152


place. Tania Minjarez was the 177


runner with a time of 23:49,

while teammate Karen Hernandez finished in 25:26 in 218


place. The Redskins ended the meet with

403 points in 13


place. The top three teams were Rodgers Arkansas with 127 points, Stillwell-Blue

Valley was 2


with 155 points, and Herculaneum Missouri was third with 162 points. The Redskins also

took their top three JV runners Reyn Slatten, Sarah Arriaga, and Kayla Gokey to the race. Reyn Slatten

was the lone medalist finishing in 20


place with a 4K time of 19:21. Arriaga and Gokey placed 89





with times of 20:53 and 20:55, respectively.

The boy’s team had 51 schools in their division. Edgar Moreno, Emilio Tovilla, and Greg McClurg

packed together to place 66


, 71


, and 85


with times of 17:43, 17:49, and 17:54, respectively. Alex

Chance completed the course in 18:10 in 114


place, while Ryan Doll finished in 162


with his time of

18:36. Antonio Borunda who was running on the course for the first time placed 180


in 18:49. Juan

Beltran’s time of 19:25 was good enough for 223


place. The Redskins finished with 472 points and

finished in 20


place. The top three teams were all Kansas schools as Dodge City took the championship

with 171 points, Olathe-South was second with 180 points, and Maize South was third with 187 points.

Joel Obando, Javier Carillo, and Josh Diazdeleon also ran in the JV race. Obando finished in 23


place to

make it to the podium with a time of 19:06. Carillo’s time of 19:28 was good enough for 43


place, and

Diazdeleon was the 102
