Melba Cross Country 

The Melba cross country team participated in the Bob Firman Invitational last week.  Bob Firman is one of the largest meets in the Northwest with schools from seven states and British Columbia in attendance.  Melba had a great showing with most of the team setting PRs for the season.  The girl’s team finished fifth place in their division out of 20 schools and just 18 points behind 4A Emmett who took home the third place trophy.  Individually, Sierra and Anysja Manzer finished 10th and 20th respectively to take home medals.  The boy’s team was 22nd in their race but they continue to get better.  Many of the boys are new to the sport and are improving every week.

The Mustangs ran a meet at Mt. Home on Friday.  The girl’s team took home the first place trophy in the small school division.  They took first, third, fourth, fifth and seventh to beat conference rivals, Nampa Christian.  The boy’s team is continuing to improve on their times in hopes of competing for a state birth at the District meet.
