Mountain View's girls team made it 10 straight titles and the boys stretched their city streak to eight Friday after winning the annual Mesa cross country city meet at Red Mountain Park.

Mountain View's girls (32 points) topped Dobson (84) for the top spot.

The race of the day was the sophomore girls in which Red Mountain's Alyssa Freeman edged Mountain View's Jayleen Robinson by a fraction of a second. Both were timed in 19 minutes, 54 seconds over the 3-mile course.

The fastest girls time of the meet came in the senior race with Mountain View's Caitlin Porter covering the distance in 19:49. Mountain View's Hailey Hanna won the junior race (20:13).

The Toros' boys won in equally impressive fashion, finishing with 31 points to top Red Mountain (106). The fastest boys time of the meet came in the sophomore race where Mountain View's D.J. Robinson finished in 15:55.

The junior race went to Red Mountain's Tyler Ross (16:14) and the senior champ was Mountain View's Dave Deaton (16:09). Mountain View finished 1-2-3 in the senior race, the only class of either gender to record that finish.

The city meet format allows for three races — sophomore, junior and senior — and the top three finishers from each school in each race add up to the team's final score.


The Saguaro girls placed six runners in the top 10 to run away with the Scottsdale District cross country meet on Friday at Eldorado Park. The Sabercats scored 29 points, well ahead of second-place Chaparral (52) and Desert Mountain (74).

On the boys side, Desert Mountain won with 42 points, followed by Chaparral (54) and Saguaro (72).

Individually, Desert Mountain's Nicole Riley won the girls race, finishing the 3.28-mile course in 19 minutes, 21 seconds. Chaparral's Madison Pohle was second in 19:58 and Saguaro's Alex Hibert was third in 20:06. Other Sabercats in the top 10 were Loren Wynn, Megan Light, Callie Decker, Carolyn Brown and Allie Herriot, who finished fifth through ninth, respectively, with just 36 seconds separating them.

Arcadia's Reed Blochberger was the boys champion, winning in 16:15. Desert Mountain's Alex Mason was second (16:33), followed by Coronado's Kyle Waites (16:48) and Chaparral's Jay Kornreich (17:00).
