The Lincoln High cross-country team ran in last weekend’s Hornet Jamboree at California State University Sacramento that included schools from all divisions. The Fighting Zebras’ Maya Peterson came in No. 25 in the girls frosh/soph race of 2 miles. Her time of 15:10.9 was less than two minutes behind the winning time turned in by Oak Ridge’s Briana Dulgar. Peterson was followed by teammates Haley Higgins, Alex Ceja, Annika Lehenbauer, and Kayla Kotecki. The varsity boys ran solidly as a group separated by a little more than three minutes. Cross country team scoring is the total of the top five runners. The closer they finish to one another the better the team score. The Zebras’ Jacob Edwards came in with a time of 19:26.6. The best Pioneer Valley League time was 17:20.9 recorded by Greg Snelson of Center. Lincoln’s Pasqual Marquez was the top PVL runner for boys frosh/soph turning in a time of 14:37.3; just 10 seconds behind him was Daniel Hagge. Aaron Jackson trailed Marquez by only 35 seconds. For the varsity girls, the team was led by Kali Federwisch who ran just 45 seconds behind the top PVL runner from Colfax. Federwisch’s time over the 5,000 meters course at Granite Regional Park was 22:49.2. Katy Mercier was about 35 seconds behind Federwisch and separated by eight other runners. The varsity girls had only three athletes in the race. The team will head for San Francisco this weekend for the Lowell Invitational at Golden Gate Park. They will return for the PVL’s first meet to be held at Gibson Ranch, Sacramento Sept. 19.
