Springville’s Red Devil runners have had the best start to this season in school history.  It started when the boys and girls varsity teams broke the school records in a fundraiser event called the 4-hour relay.  In this relay each member of the team takes turns running a mile and they see how many miles they can run in a four hour span.  They boys team ran about 600m over the school record, and the girls demolished the old school record by setting the third all-time record over all past boys and girls results.

The team had their first official race, The Grass Relays, on August 29, in American Fork.   This course ranges two miles including jumping over hay bales.  In the boys varsity relay, Springville team placed twelfth overall; third in the 4A state division.  The girls team placed ninth overall, third in the 4A state division. The varsity boys top finisher was Grant Gardner who placed eleventh overall with a time of 10:21.  The girls top finisher was Julie Sumsion who placed fourth overall with a time of 11:56 which is the eleventh fastest time run on this course.

Haden Penrod said, “The race was very hot and fun at the same time.”

Brandon Garnica also said the weather was hot and that he was pleased with his performance.

Julie Sumsion said that she had fun running in the race.

Sumsion said, “The team has improved a lot since she got here, and it’s really fun to watch.”

Megan Skinner adds that she had fun at the race and she really enjoyed watching her younger sister and teammate Mariah Skinner run.

Head Coach Sam Smith was pleased with how the team performed at the meet. 

Smith said, “The team has tripled in talent since I came here.  The team is doing great; and I believe that this is the best boys and girls team in school history.

Smith said that the team’s goals are to sweep regions for boys and girls and come home with a pair of state trophies.

The cross country team will represent Springville High at the BYU Autumn Classic on September 5 in which the boys are pre-ranked sixth and the girls are pre-ranked third. The cross country team is ready and eager to perform and represent the Red Devils.
