Marshfield’s cross country teams swept the titles in the Cinnamon Roll Run at Port Orford on Tuesday.
The Pirates were competing against eight other teams, though only four boys squads and two girls teams were complete with five scoring runners.
And Bandon, which figured to be the biggest competition, raced its runners in pairs, with the faster runners matched up with slower teammates in the buddy running system, so the Tigers were not able to match the Pirates. Brookings-Harbor was second in the boys team race and Bandon second for the girls.
Marshfield had both winners of the individual races.
