Kaitlyn Hutchinson’s seventh place individual finish helped her Robertson Lady Cardinals finish fifth among Class 3A girls’ teams in this past Saturday’s state cross country championships.

 

Hutchinson finished her final race of her senior season in 20 minutes, 59 seconds. Only two girls broke the 20-minute threshold — winner Kate Norskog of St. Mike’s (a runaway 19:21) and Leanne Lee of Zuni (19:47). 

 

Wingate was the girls’ team champ with 52 team points, followed by Zuni (63), St. Mike’s (93), Shiprock (100), RHS and Santa Fe Indian (each with 154), Silver (161), Socorro (218), West Las Vegas (234), Taos (263), Hope Christian (264) and Cobre (323).

 

Jordan Lopez led the WLV boys’ squad by finishing 22nd; the Dons ran 11th as a team.

 

Santa Fe Indian led by individual victor Santiago Pasquale (16:17) won the boys’ run, beating Shiprock, Pojoaque, Zuni and St. Mike’s in the top five.
