Kanab hosted the Region 13 Cross Country Meet last Thursday and several of the Cowboys did very well.

Senior Yanni Gallagher finished in first place in the boys race, setting a new course record of 15:53. Teamwise, Parowan took first place, as the young Cowboy squad came in fifth over the 3.1 mile course.

Junior Mariah Clayson ended up second in the girls race. She covered the 3.1 miles in 20:05. Enterprise claimed the top spot for the girls.

Cross Country coach Kevin Orton was high on his young team, saying they had a lot of freshmen and sophomores, so the future looked good for Kanab Cross Country.

Coach Orton accompanied Gallagher and Clayson as they left Tuesday for the State Meet at Sugerhouse Park in Salt Lake City on Wednesday. Good luck to Yanni and Mariah!
