After a late night at the first football game, Paradise senior Hannah Beth Pearson admittedly was running on fumes Saturday morning at the Boyd Invitational.

It didn’t show as Pearson zoomed through the 3,200-meter course to finish fourth in 13:09.

“I only had six hours of sleep and was not mentally here. I just ran,” Pearson said.

Behind Pearson, Paradise finished second with 71 points. District 8-3A rival Holliday won the meet with 63. The two teams will meet again Oct. 12 on the course in the 8-3A championships.

“It was good to get practice in and learn the hills on the course,” Pearson said.

Valley View’s Sydney Reynolds won the race in 12:08 – 19 seconds ahead of Allison Hedrick of Lindsay. Holliday’s Leah Bullinger was fourth in 12:32.

Including Pearson, Paradise placed four runners in the top 19. Maddie Mitschke finished seventh in 13:20. Kaycee Martin ran 13:31 for 12th and Allyson Black 13:46 for 19th. Emersen Adams crossed the finish line in 14:32 in 40th as the Lady Panthers’ fifth runner.

“They all work hard every day. They just have to get after it and compete,” said Paradise coach Karin Essig.

Bridgeport finished fifth with 159 points. Marisol Fraga led the Sissies, taking fifth in 13:14. Kristen Grooms finished in 14 minutes for 27th. Tariana Cervantes was 30th in 14:08 and Karen Ibarra 50th in 14:54. Lexi Shield finished 69th in 15:37.

Boyd took seventh with 188 points. Carrie Schwartz ran 13:35 for 15th. Kristain Bowen was 28th in 14:03, Georgie Tullos 43rd in 14:39, Abby Hays 59th in 15:15 and Emma Clark 74th in 15:47.
