Senior Micah McLeish finished 27th and junior Lucas Hindman 34th Saturday to pace Taft High to an eighth-place finish in the Class 3A OSAA State Cross Country Championships at Lane Community College in Eugene.

“This team has laughed and held each other up throughout the season and continue to impress me,” Taft coach Mandy Weiss said. “I’m so proud of each runner and the hard work and dedication they put into the season even before it started.”

Burns, behind individual champion Emmett Klus, won the team title by two points over Enterprise.

Taft senior Clayton Helfrich placed 47th, junior Eli DeMello 52nd, junior Hunter Lundstedt 57th, freshman Austin Winters 64th and junior Joram Hoff 65th.
