SH's Tanner Sayers fifth at state 4A cross-country championships
November 8, 2017
Tanner Sayers' big goal, entering his junior cross-country season this year, was simply to make it to the state meet.
Saturday, he was pretty happy with a fifth-place finish at state.
Sayers ran 16:49 on a soggy course at Lane Community College to edge Tyler Anderson of Madras in a photo finish. Anderson was accorded the same time, but ruled as having finished just behind Sayers.
They finished behind winner John Kavulich of Scappoose (16:23), who led wire to wire, Jordan Pollard of Sisters (16:34), Robby Vos of Phoenix (16:47) and Matthew Frazeur of Stayton (16:47), also a junior.
