Everyone except Jamie and Taylir will return next year.

The boys took off at 4 PM. Literally.
The Cavemen picked up their third straight 5A crown, scoring 25 points to 33 for Davis. Cavemen and Darts took 10 of the top 12 places. The Cavemen ran a team time of 78:17, #2 all-time behind our 78:01 record from last year. Davis' team time was #3 all-time.

It was an Epic dual meet battle between the two nationally ranked teams.

Mack Morrison set the 5A record of 15:22.4, passing Brad Nye of Davis in the last 25 meters.
Clayton Young placed 3rd in 15:31, with Brayden McLellend right behind him in 15:33. Davis' Brayden Cromar came in 5th, followed by our friend Haven Shelton from PG. Connor McMillan took 7th, passing about 6 guys in the last mile.His time of 15:47  just missed Clayton's 5A Soph record by 4 seconds. He was followed 3 more Davis boys in 8th-Preston Johnson, 10th-Logan Wood, and 11th-Skylar Williams. Tyson Green took 12th in 16:03 to finish the scoring. Zac Jacklin placed 15th in 16:09, which set a new 5A Frosh record by 4 seconds. Dallas Griswold placed 35th in 16:50. The boys' times ended up 1st, 5th, 7th, 9th, 16th, and 19th on the all-time Caveman list.

We'd like to thank all the students, parents, alumni, and fans for coming to Sugarhouse Park to support the team. We would also like to thank the AF Fire Department for the fire engine escort through town on the way back to school. That was AWESOME!

Running The Edge

Friends of Caveman Cross-Country, Olympian Adam Goucher and Teacher and Coach Tim Catalano, have written a book called "Running The Edge". It is about striving for excellence in both running and in life. Copies of the book can be purchased from their website: Run The Edge.

Tim and Adam have announced that for every book sold on their website between now and October 5th, Run the Edge will donate $3.00 to Runners with a Reason,  a non-profit charity started by Britt Ehlers and his wife to raise money to remove the reasons people find not to run.  Britt's first thought was to provide shoes to addicts who wanted to use running to fight their addictions.  This idea got the ball rolling and soon Runners with a Reason was helping runners in a variety of ways.  They have collected over 1000 shoes for One World Running , provide support and scholarships for the Girls on the Run program, and created a winter running club for students at low income schools in their area.  In the first year of that program, 3 kids finished the Lincoln half marathon and earned $250 scholarships for college.  It is not much but a gentle push in the right direction can have a tremendous trans-formative influence on a young person’s life.
