The Carson Middle School eighth grade boys cross country team took second place at the TahNeva League Cross Country Championships contested Friday afternoon at Kahle Park in Stateline.
Fifteen Middle Schools from both Nevada and California participated in the event with more than 300 runners competing.

CMS seventh graders win title
The Carson Middle seventh grade girls finished their basketball season undefeated after winning the TahNeva tournament recently. They won the last two games of the tournament by more than 20 points each.
The team was led by Lily Bouza (15 ppg), Lexi Philippi, Bella Kordonowy, and twin towers Gabby Frank, and Olivia Frank.
Mighty Mites win twice
The Carson City Pop Warner Mighty Mites beat Reno, 20-6, and the Sparks Cardinals, 39-6, last week. The team was forced to play on Wednesday and Saturday because of the recent fire/smoke which washed out a weekend of the schedule.
In the win over Reno last Wednesday, Keegan Ferris, Alex Myrehn and Jessie Delgado scored TDs for Carson. Zach Guthrie recovered a fumble, and David Smith, Alex Castillo, Eric Pool, Brandon Bradley and Nathan McKee led the defense.
Against Sparks, Delgado ran for two scores and threw a TD pass to Decarlo Quintana. Guthrie returned a punt for a score and Myrehn ran for a TD. Nick Coughran blocked well, while Danny Alvarado intercepted a pass and Miles Frewert recovered a fumble to lead the defense. Josh White and J.T. Heaton also played well defensively.
