Huskies roll at regionals
DELTA ” The Huskies cross country team is returning to its home away from home.
The Battle Mountain boys’ team thoroughly dominated Saturday’s regional meet at Delta, finishing 1-2-3-4-6, winning its third consecutive regional title, while the girls pulled an upset of Glenwood Springs and Moffat County to finish second.
Both teams qualified for next week’s state meet at Harrison High School in Colorado Springs ” the girls for the fourth year in a row and the boys for the third.
While the boys were prohibitive favorites and followed through with flying colors Saturday, the girls were the big surprise. The Huskies had hoped to squeeze into what they thought would be the third and final team spot for state. Instead, Huskies finished second with plenty of room to spare.
Summit won the girls’ meet with 30 points, followed by the Huskies with 68, Glenwood (73) and Moffat County (74).

The boys simply crushed the competition. Jonny Stevens won the individual regional title with a time of 15 minutes, 58 seconds. He broke his own school mark and is the first Battle Mountain athlete to break 16 minutes. John O’Neill came in second with a 16:06, which also would have broken Steven’s old school record.
