PORTLAND — Crater sophomore Josiah Tostenson solely ran the primary mile of Thursday evening’s 5,000-meter run on the Crater Twilight as a result of what he had going the subsequent day.
With a fast turnaround and a visit as much as Portland, Tostenson confirmed no ailing results.
Tostenson positioned sixth with a time of 16 minutes, 5.5 seconds in a deep area on the second annual Rose Metropolis Championship Invitational at Rose Metropolis Golf Course on Friday afternoon.
Milwaukie senior Logan Legislation — who completed in fifth, three spots behind Tostenson, finally 12 months’s Class 5A state cross-country meet — gained the race in 15:17.2. Legislation simply edged out Lincoln senior Samy Anderson (15:17.5), whereas West Salem junior Jack Meier (15:42.4) and Central Catholic senior Wesley Shipsey (15:53.8) had been third and fourth, respectively.
Tostenson was the lone Crater runner to compete in Friday’s race.
Thursday evening’s mile-long run was Tostenson’s first aggressive outing in almost a month. The plan entering into was all the time for him to run the primary mile alongside senior teammate Tyrone Gorze, who was trying to turn into simply the ninth ever highschool runner to run a sub-14-minunte time in a 5,000-meter race.
Tostenson ran simply in entrance of Gorze for just about all the mile earlier than pulling off to the correct down the backstretch as he ended his run.
In Friday’s race, Tostenson completed only a tenth of a second forward of Central Catholic senior Charlie Black, who completed in 16:05.6. Tostenson was three seconds forward of Black on the 3-mile cut up, and held him off down the ultimate stretch to safe sixth place.
