Carla Stoloski finished 11th overall in 23:02. She was the fifth girl to finish individually, not counting the Maple Grove runners, who won sectionals and had six of the top 10 runners. Stoloski would have qualified for the state meet if it wasn’t cancelled.

Barker took first place with 69 points as Clymer/Sherman/Panama was second with 75 and Maple Grove third with 85.

The Raiders had their top five runners all finish in the top 21 as Robert Mason was 8th, Dawson Donovan 10th, Logan Harris 13th, Mason Allee-Castro 17th and Evan Taylor 21st.

“They really pulled it together,” said Coach Paul DeSarkissian whose Raiders captured the sectional title for the 10th time in the last 20 years.

The Barker girls finished third behind first place Maple Grove and second place Clymer/Sherman/Panama. Carla Stoloski placed 11th to lead the Lady Raiders.
