The HRVHS Cross Country team opened its season with the Mt. Hood Conference Relays at Sandy on Wednesday and came away with valuable experience for the rest of the season. The squad ran two teams on the mile course and Coach Kristen Uhler felt that the team performed well in its first competition of the season.
For the first team, Melissa Kauffman ran a 5:48, Catherine Kiyokawa ran 6:39, Jennifer Lucas 6:19 and Erin Jones 5:41.
In the second group, Hilary Hilden ran 6:30, Alisa Logsdon 6:45, Ana Calderon 6:53 and Kelsey Griffith 6:46. The team’s next meet is the Skip Sparks Invitational in Hood River on Sept. 13.
