LAYTON—Farmington’s girls team and Northridge’s boys team took titles at the annual Davis District cross country championships held Sept. 28 at Layton Commons Park. While several top runners skipped the meet in preparation for region and state races later this month, there were great individual performances by local harriers.

Layton’s Hailey Low continued to show that she’s one of the state’s best runners, as she broke free early and coasted to the girls’ title in a time of 16:37.28 over the 2.75 mile course. Teammate Carli Nelson was second, followed by Viewmont’s Brynn Rees and Naomi Egnew. Skye Siddoway of Farmington was fifth, helping lead the Phoenix to the team title with 46 points in the lowest-score-wins competition.

Northridge’s Will Luoma and Bountiful’s Andrew Jensen were neck and neck most of the way in the boys’ varsity race, with Luoma taking the title at 13:52.77. Jensen finished at 13:59.15. Gabe Hooper of Viewmont was third and Davis’ Isaac Lundberg was fourth.

Northridge also took the team title with 67 points, edging Bountiful, which took second at 69.

Runners will now set their sights on region meets that lead up to the state finals at the Regional Athletic Complex in Rose Park on Oct. 25. λ
