The long distance runners of Saratoga Middle/High School returned to Colorado over the weekend to compete in the John Martin Invitational in Fort Collins on Friday, Sept. 14. Runners Kaitlyn Campbell and Shianne Baker competed in the women's junior varsity race instead of the varsity. Campbell placed 100th out of 170 runners and Baker placed 130th.

The men's varsity saw a shake-up this weekend as Jarom Herring, who usually leads the Panther sprinters, was outran by Joey Gonzales and Logan Seahorn. Out of 80 runners, Gonzales placed 28th with a time of 19:04 and Seahorn placed 47th with a time of 19:58.

Herring, meanwhile, followed seven spots behind Seahorn, placing 54th with a time of 20:17. Following Herring were Jeremiah Debar, who placed 59th with a time of 20:29, and Kelton Johnson, who placed 64th with a time of 21:01.

The SMHS Cross Country team will get a chance to run for the hometown crowd on Friday, Sept. 21 as they host the Shana Ward Memorial Invite which will take place at the Saratoga Hot Springs Resort Golf Course.

The junior varsity and varsity girls will begin at 1:50 p.m. and the junior varsity and varsity boys will begin at 2:30 p.m.
