Vesma, Hindman lead Taft boys cross country team to State; Ellis paces girls

Seniors Matias Vesma and Lucas Hindman placed fifth and sixth, respectively, Thursday at Cheadle Lake Park in Lebanon to lead the Taft High boys cross country team into next week’s State finals as Class 3A Special District 2 champions.

Senior Autumn Ellis placed fifth in 21:06.70 to qualify individually for State and pace the Taft High girls to 10th place behind champion Central Linn.

Matias, a Finnish foreign exchange student, ran 18:10.90 and Hindman 18:19.10 to spook the field on Halloween behind winner Benjamin Bourne, a freshman from Santiam Christian who finished in 17:26.60.

Taft won the boys title 43-51 over Santiam Christian in preparation for next week’s OSAA State Cross Country Championships at Lane Community College in Eugene, which are scheduled to begin Saturday, Nov. 9, at 10 a.m. for the women and 11:10 a.m. for the men.

“The varsity boys team taking the District title and proceeding to State is a huge achievement considering at the beginning of the season we did not even have enough athletes to make a team,” said Taft coach Eva Ahumada, who was named Coach of the Year.

Junior Rafael Perez Del Valle was 13th, sophomore Brayan Mateo was 15th, senior Hunter Lunstedt was 19th and freshman Cooper Fitch was 27th for the Taft boys.

Sophomore Jordan White of Neah-Kah-Nie ran 19:23.70 to win the girls 5,000-meter crown.

Senior Brooke Orendorff placed 38th, with junior Claira Tolan, sophomore Kaydince Beach and senior Alani Cabal also contributing for the Taft girls.

“The athletes ran their hardest and gave it their all,” Ahmadad said. “I could not be more proud of this team and the gains they have made this season.”
