Sep 30, 2014 - Doug Conley Invitaional Results/Recap
It was another hot day in the early fall desert, with temperatures approaching 90 degrees at race time. The open girls section kicked off the meet for Chandler High, as freshman Melanie Hindenes was the schools top finisher on the very challenging course in a time of 25:28.22. Brianna Smith wasn't too far behind as she crossed the line at 25:51.88.
The next race featuring Wolves runners was the Varsity boys section. Senior, Conner Hinsch, ran a great race to set a new 5k PR in a time of 19:15.20. He improved on his time from Ojo Rojo by 40 seconds on a much more difficult course. Jay Depler, sophomore, was the second man for the Chandler squad, as he finished the course in a time of 21:14.54; his second best ever.
The last race of the day for the Chandler Wolves was the prestigious Doug Conley "Elite" Invitational section which features many of the top teams in the state. After their performances the past couple of weeks, the girls team was given the opportunity to test themselves against many of the premier teams in Arizona. It was a very good showing for the girls team in their first big test of the season. They finished in 10th place overall with 5 of the top 6 teams from the state championship race last year finishing ahead of them. They also beat a top 10 team from a year ago as well as several other state championship qualifying teams. Junior, Alexis Nichols, led the way for the Wolves in 14th place with a time of 20:14.59. She was followed closely by teammates Gabby Enns and Ava Hamilton who were 20th and 27th, respectively, in times of 20:27.54 and 20:46.88. Sam Miller and Verenise Munoz rounded out the top 5 for the team score.
Up next for the Wolves will be the Desert Twilight Invitational on Friday, October 3. The meet will feature a number of the top teams in the Southwest. It's a fast course, so be on the look out for some new PR's!
