The third-ranked 2A Salado boys cross country team outpaced its much bigger competition en route to winning the Georgetown River Run Invitational last weekend.

Competing in the 4A/5A Division, the Eagles topped area 5A competition from Belton, Copperas Cove, Harker Heights and Temple, as well as host Georgetown, which took second.

Leading the charge for Salado was fifth-place individual Alex Cooke (16 minutes, 39.4 seconds), 10th place Robert Pereira (16:56.9) and 13th place Nick Cooke (17:05.3) as all five runners finished among the top 31 with an average time of 1:25:53.

Belton finished fifth as a team, just ahead of sixth-place Harker Heights, which was led by 12th-place individual finisher Scott McEwan (16:58.3)

Copperas Cove took 12th with senior Cameron Woodberry finishing sixth individually (16:42.2) and Leonard Kim finishing ninth (16:54.8).

Also bringing home gold for Salado was Ashley Adams, who won the 1A/3A girls race with a time of 13:10.4, sending the Lady Eagles to a runner-up team finish behind Giddings, with Saxton China coming in third individually (13:26.1).
