Cross Country

Bandon took the team titles in the Cinnamon Roll Invitational cross country meet at Pacific High School on Monday.

Gold Beach had both individual winners, with Brycen Pitchford taking the boys title and Bethy Myers winning for the girls.

Pitchford covered the 2.5-mile boys course in 13 minutes and 48 seconds.

Bandon’s top seniors did not compete and the other top varsity boys ran together, with Isaac Cutler finishing second in 14:02, followed by Aero Franklin in 14:04 and Jared Duval in 14:14. Pacific’s Devon Richard (14:18) and Layne Converse (14:19) were next.

For the girls, Myers finished in 16:54, followed by teammate Anna McCann in 17:00 and Reedsport’s Ashley Schuttpelz in 18:31. They were followed by six Bandon runners, led by Shelby Waterman in 18:35. Isabella Bean was fifth in 19:23, just in front of Hannah Wayne (19:25).

The cross country season is winding down. Saturday’s Myrtle Point Invitational and next Wednesday’s Country Fair Classic are the only two remaining big events involving South Coast teams before the district meets, which for Bandon, Reedsport and Gold Beach will be Oct. 26 at Rogue River. Pacific is in a separate district, with its district meet the same day in Eugene.
