Jason Blasco, Leader

Polson High School cross country runner Bea Frissell and Ronan High School boy’s cross country runner James Normandeau have well-established reputations of being elite runners in the Mission Valley.

Both of them got a chance to showcase their talent Friday afternoon at the Ronan Canal Bank run.

Normandeau bested Frenchtown’s Luke Lutz by seconds. Lutz recorded a time of 17 minutes, 21 seconds, to finish a respectable second in the race.

Normandeua’s teammate Brant Heiner finished eighth in the race recording a time of 18 minutes, 43 seconds. Other boy’s runners that finished in the top ten include Mason Sloan, who finished fifth with a time of 18 minutes, 16 seconds and Quin Stewart finished seventh with a time of 18 minutes, 34 seconds.

Bozeman sweeps Capital City 7 of 7 cross country; Lady Hawks edge Hellgate by point

HELENA — The Bozeman High cross country teams swept the 13th annual Capital City 7 of 7 Cross Country Meet on a wet, rainy Thursday at Bill Roberts Golf Course. The the girls championship, however, was decided by a single point.

The Lady Hawks edged Missoula Hellgate — which has beaten Bozeman twice this year — 11-12, followed by Helena in third place with 44 points.

The Bozeman boys also scored 11 points for their crown, compared to runners-up Hellgate and Missoula Sentinel, who tied at 35 each. Helena finished fifth with 61 points.

Capital's boys placed seventh with 72 points, and the Lady Bruins were 12th at 110.

The individual championships were captured by Billings Senior's Tiahna Vladic and Ben Perrin of Flathead. Vladic was clocked in at 17 minutes, 35 seconds over the 5K course, while Perrin posted a 15:43.

"We've been battling with Hellgate all year, they have a phenomenal team, and it was an exciting day of competition," Bozeman coach Casey Jermyn said. "We're very equal, and it comes down to who has the better day."

Both schools won three races apiece, and in all seven races contested, Bozeman and Hellgate were just one place apart.

"We're definitely pushing each other, we're looking to keep our streak alive (of 11 successive state championships), and I know (Hellgate) wants to break it," Jermyn said.

The Hawks coach said his boys, which have garnered 10 AA titles in a row, had a very impressive day, winning five of the seven races.

The State Meet takes place Oct. 20 in Missoula.

Vladic led the girls race from wire-to-wire, while achieving a PR and finished ahead of runner-up Terra Trom of Bozeman, who clocked an 18:15, by 40 seconds.

"I went out with the boys and was 5:10 for the first mile, and was worried that it was too fast, but I decided to keep it going and got a PR," Vladic said. "It was a lot of fun."

Perrin was pushed to the wire by Laurel's Levi Taylor, who was just 8 seconds back at 15:51.

"There were a bunch of us changing the lead at the start, and then I went in front after the first hill (about quarter mile)," Perrin said. "I held the lead the rest of the way, but Levi was so close I could hear him breathing the whole way until the very end. It was a good way to get a good time because he was pushing me."

Helena's girls, who posted their first top-three placing in coach Linda Paull's 12-years at the helm, were led by Kylie Hartnett and Kylee Wetzel. The two freshmen posted PRs and both placed fourth, Hartnett (18:39) in the No. 1 race, and Wetzel (19:59) in the No. 3.

Teammates Katelyn McKay (20:29) was eighth in the No. 2, freshman Rylie Schoenfeld (20:04) was third in the No. 4 and Jasmine Wilkerson (20:18) placed third in the No. 5.

"We had a great day with our top five under 20:35 with Kylie and Kylee both having amazing races," Paull said. "They're just a group of awesome young ladies."

Helena's boys were paced by Jonah Fisher, 10th in the No. 1 in 16:45. Zane Rousch, eighth in the No. 2, and Clayton Ryerson, fourth in the No. 3, both ran 17:04s. Trystan Brewer (17:06) finished third in the No. 4.

Jesse McMurtrey sparked the Bruins with a seventh-place showing in the No. 1, with a time of 16:38. He was followed by Peter Lund (17:23) in 18th in the No. 2, and Danny Leas (17:45) at 13th in the No. 3.

CHS's girls were led by No. 1 Emma Rohrer-Fitzhugh, placing 21st in 20:37, and Zoe Wall, who ran a 20:52 and took 13th in the No. 2.

Class B Townsend's girls placed 22nd, paced by Emma Stolte with a 20:41 for 22nd place. The Bulldogs boys were 27th, behind Louis Ingalls, in 28th at 17:58.

Jefferson's top runners were Andy Johnson and Hyram Parke (both 20:04), and Grace Alexander at 22:42.

State Class A

GIRLS

Polson’s Frissell repeats

Polson senior Beatrix Frissell won her second consecutive state title, breaking her own Class A 5K record in the process.

“It means a whole lot to me when I think about all the work I’ve put into it,” Frissell said while wearing sunglasses. “I think that’s for sure the most important thing, just thinking back to all the summer miles and all the miles during the season. It all coming to this is really amazing.”

Frissell finished in 19:02.57, cruising to victory by 21.02 seconds over Hamilton’s Brynnli Poulsen. She had been dealing with a small cold for a few weeks that was still affecting her Saturday, but that couldn’t stop her.

“Last year, I felt like I had quite a bit of girls around me and I had a third-place finish my sophomore year, so I didn’t really have everybody looking at me,” Frissell said. “This year, it was a bit scary because I felt like everybody was looking at me. That definitely made me nervous, but I also felt confident heading into it for sure. I put in a lot of training this year, so that helps.”
Hardin 3-peats

Hardin won its third consecutive state title, edging out Whitefish, 56-73.

“Every title was different and meant something different,” Hardin head coach Cindy Farmer said. “When you get that first one, that means everything. Then you keep working, and we got that second one. This was probably the toughest one for us, more mentally than anything else. They came through. All year, they were a steady pack. They’re there for each other. They love to run. They trust each other and are there for each other.”

Hardin placed three girls in the top nine. Sophomore Khylah Two Leggins was third, sophomore Libby Nedens was fifth and sophomore Marion Hugs was ninth. Junior Journey Erickson placed 16th, and junior Ivery Fritzler was 23rd.

“All year, the expectations were there that they were going to three-peat,” Farmer said. “We had a couple of our runners in the top five last year that got hurt, so we had other people step into those roles and they did an amazing job. The depth and the determination just prevailed.”

Columbia Falls takes team title, Laurel's Taylor breaks record

The Wildcats earned their first team title since 2009 behind Joe Lamb's third-place finish in 16:42.20 and Seth Umbriaco's fourth-place showing in 16:44.99.

Columbia Falls totaled 76 points, which was 31 fewer than second-place Hardin. That was a little surprising considering the teams appeared to be on a collision course at state.

"Hardin is an amazing team and all year watching us and Hardin, it's been a real even season," Wildcats coach Jim Peacock said. "If you took a look, one week one team would do something cool. The next week the other team.

"Hardin is every bit our equal. Really it was whichever team had the better day today. I'm really happy today was our day. These guys are young but very smart."

Columbia Falls had a junior and three sophomores on its list of top four finishers Saturday. The only senior to score finished fifth among Wildcats.

Laurel's Levi Taylor made a big individual splash, repeating as state champion and setting a Class A record in the process in 16:18.24. He shaved about 11 seconds off his state-record time from last October.

"But what I'll definitely remember more than anything is placing third as a team," he said. "That's like the highest placing Laurel has done. We've gotten third before but we tied the highest."

Corvallis junior Will Flowers made the most of the balmy conditions with a fifth-place finish in 16:48.15.

"There couldn't be a better way to end the season," he said. "I'm just ecstatic right now. I was hoping at least top 10 and I got top 5, so I was happy about that. I was trying to run with the Columbia Falls runners. Just staying up with them really helped me out."

Team scores: Columbia Falls 76, Hardin 107, Laurel 110, Lewistown 115, Corvallis 189, Frenchtown 204, Belgrade 205, Hamilton 216, Havre 250, Ronan 262, Polson 274, Whitefish 291, Miles City 310, Livingston 335, Glendive 343, Billings Central 356, Browning 478, Dillon 485, Libby 541, Stevensville 606, Sidney 615.
