The girls team from Barranca Mesa finished with a near-perfect score at Friday’s Elementary School Mile Run.
The run is held annually in conjunction with the Los Alamos Invitational cross country meet. Any elementary school student is eligible to compete in the run.
Zoe Challacombe, a sixth-grader at Barranca Mesa, led a group of sixth graders from her school to the near-perfect finish. Only Aspen’s Maria Sandoval broke up the perfect score bid in the race, edging out Kenidee Hatler, Barranca’s fifth runner.
Following Challacombe, who finished the race in a time of 6 minutes, 43 seconds, Rachel Thoma, Sienna Ahlers and Emily Mercer, all of Barranca Mesa, took the next four spots.
In the boys competition, Chamisa held on to beat Aspen. Chamisa finished with 64 points, 15 points better than Aspen.
Chamisa’s team was paced by Brandon Bao, who was the seventh-place finisher overall.
Individually, Ben Rees of Piñon took top honors. He finished with a time of 6:35 to win.
