High school 5A state cross-country: Springville, Mountain View boys win

With about 250 meters left in the 5A girls state cross-country race, Springville coach Samantha Smith got the attention of her fifth runner, Adri Bird, and pointed at a runner a bit in front of her and said, “That’s state.”

Now granted, Smith didn’t know exactly how many places Bird needed to make up during the long home stretch of the course at the Regional Athletic Complex in Salt Lake City, but she knew the race for the team title was going to be extremely tight and every position mattered.

So that’s exactly what Bird did, she caught and passed a few runners during those final 250 meters, and her reward was the satisfaction of clinching Springville its fifth straight 5A state title.

“No. 5 is always the stressor, cause that person is the one that can score the most points and make or break it, and our No. 5 this year has been hurt most of the season,” said Smith. “It’s been a really rocky season for us, and so to have her come and watch her just step up (was great).”

Bird ended up finishing in 26th place, but that proved to be the difference as Springville finished with 78 team points to edge Timpanogos, which finished with 83 points.

“Each team comes with different challenges and different opportunities, and each team chooses to want it, and the nice thing is they build off of each other,” said Smith, who said this year’s team title chase was much closer than the previous four years.

While Springville needed every point to claim its team title, Mountain View boys dominated en route to their second-straight 5A title on Tuesday.

Mountain View’s top five runners all placed in the top 15 as it tallied 48 team points, plenty of cushion to beat Orem, which finished second with 104 points.

The main drama in 5A was the individual state title, which for 2 1/2 miles was very much up in the air between a pair of seniors, Orem’s Tayson Echohawk and Mountain View’s Liam Heninger. Echohawk started to pull away late, finishing with a time of 14:53.7, with Heninger crossing in 15:05.2.

“Mentally, everywhere, my brain was telling me, ‘You’re too tired, you’re done,’ but I’ve been talking to all my family and just learning from experience. I just trained my mind to beat those times and that’s what I used in the last half-mile to gain the lead and cruise it on home for the win,” said Echohawk.

A year ago it was Echohawk who faded in the final mile as he settled for a runner-up finish. On Tuesday, he blocked out the pain to finish under 15 minutes in a great performance in his final cross-country race in Utah.

The 5A boys field was stacked with outstanding talent, with Orem’s Austin Westfall, Olympus’ JoJo Jourdon, Northridge’s Will Luoma and Park City’s Chris Henry rounding out the top six.

“It was a really hard race, I knew it was going to be hard, but if you want to win you’ve got to fight, so that’s what I did,” said Echohawk.

Timpview sophomore Jane Hedengren enjoyed a similar second-to-first jump at state this year.

After running on the hip of Mountain View’s Mari Konold virtually the entire race, Hedengren made her move in the final 250 meters, and her long stride allowed her to pull away for the individual state title and finishing runner-up a year ago.

She finished with a time of 17:25.4, the best time of the entire day in all six classifications, while Konold crossed in second place with a time of 17:37.6.

“My plan today was to hold and try and pull away with a half-mile left. I’ve had some trouble this season with injury, so I was just trying to give it my best shot today and pull away with the win,” said Hedengren.

Orem’s Lydia Beus, Lehi’s Graysen Lanenga and Springville’s Sarah Galbraith rounded out the top five.

Galbraith’s performance was critical in Springville’s chase for five.

“Sarah Galbraith ran out of her mind, she did amazing. She finished fifth overall, and she normally has been running side by side with her sister Savannah,” said Smith.

She challenged her senior to step out of her comfort zone and chase with the lead pack, and that proved to be valuable as she placed in the top five.
