Lady Cats second in Sandia meet

CNJ staff

ALBUQUERQUE — Clovis High’s girls finished second on a tiebreaker in Saturday’s Michael Prentice Memorial Invitational cross country meet.

The Lady Wildcats and host Sandia tied for first with 46 points in the 10-school event, but the Matadors earned the team title with a better sixth-place finish. Freshman Caitlin Waters and eighth-grader Michelle Schenk finished 2-3 for the Lady Cats.

“The girls competed very well,” CHS coach Brian Stacy said. “This is a tough course. I told the girls, ‘I don’t care what the times are, I just want to compete,’ and that’s what they did.”

Clovis boys finished ninth with 220 poits. Sandia also took that team title with a score of 30.
