Boys Cross Country Top Ten at State

By Tyler Ercanbrack, Team Captain
State XC 2012 Boys State

Springville High’s Boys Cross Country finished another successful season by placing 10th at the State Championships on October 19th. Leading the team was junior Owen Gardner who finished 16th overall and senior Tyler Ercanbrack who was 27th.

This was one of the fastest years ever at the very demanding three mile course at Sugar House Park in Salt Lake City. Owen’s time of 16:09 would have placed in the top five any other year and was the fourth fastest time run by a SHS runner.

This was the team’s seventh appearance in the last eight years at state. Other members of the team competing included senior Jantzen Dalley, juniors Griffin Park, Helaman Burrows, Brenn Manwaring, and sophomore Stephen Dangerfield. Eight of the top ten runners from this year’s
team will be returning next season.
