The Carson High boys and girls cross country teams continued to show improvement heading into another high-power meet this weekend.

Carson competed for the second time this year on the Washoe Lake State Park course on Wednesday, covering the 3.1-mile course through the beach and the water. And most of the Senators improved their times from their last effort on the course in a meet with Damonte Ranch and Hug.

The Senator boys beat Hug 17-47 and Damonte Ranch 26-32 while the Carson girls beat Hug 17-46. Damonte’s girls didn’t have a full team.

Carson’s boys weren’t running at full strength Caleb Carter and Nick Schlager were both nursing injuries and just jogged the course. Wade Smith also didn’t run with a hamstring injury.

Richard Shroy won the boys race in 16 minutes, 38 seconds, a 45-second improvement over the last time he ran the course. Logan Philippi continued to show improvement as he’s earning a spot on the varsity. He finished third in 17:36, which was a 50-secod improvement over the last time he ran the course.

“He’s showed great improvement really throughout the whole year,” Carson coach Pete Sinnott said. “He gets better each week.”
