Girls: Placer 19, Colfax 64, Lincoln 82, Bear River 89, Center 115
From Auburn Journal
The best way to open the Pioneer Valley League cross country season is to remember the lollipop, so Colfax coach Shana Brown made it easy for varsity runners by passing them out Wednesday.
Placerâs boys missed their second turn into the lollipop-shaped portion of the Colfax cross country course last year, so Brown distributed ceremonial lollipops to avoid another disqualification in 2016.
With the course layout fresh in their minds, Placer boys and girls sped to remarkable times on the 5-kilometer course.
Placer girls outscored second-place Colfax 19-64, while Lincoln scored 82 and Bear River 89. The Hillmen boys beat runner-up Colfax 25-62, while Center (79), Bear River (93) and Lincoln (116) followed in succession.
Placerâs varsity girls landed every score in the top six, including first-place Marin Chamberlin (20:55), Skyler Bray (third, 21:26), Elana Muzzy (fourth, 21:26), Delaney Garcia (fifth, 22:09) and Lisa Vaughan (sixth, 22:11).
âIâm very happy with PVL No. 1,â Placer coach Randall Fee said. âItâs the first time you get to see all the new faces and you never know who you will match up with.
âNow that No. 1 is under your belt you have more confidence for No. 2.â
