Star Valley claims 1st annual “Dairy-Air” Mud Run

Star Valley claims 1st annual “Dairy-Air” Mud Run

There were ninja turtles, super heroes and even twin saviors of a galaxy far, far away. And mud. Plenty of mud.

If the pictures are to be trusted, the first annual Dairy-Air Mud Run hosted by the Star Valley High School Cross-Country team was more than a success, it was a life-long memory.

The Soda Springs girls took the team race with three of the top seven racers led by Kadee Simmons who placed fourth. Hannah Demler, a.k.a. Princess Leia,  was second overall for Star Valley who had two of the top eight. Karli Piaia of Rock Springs barreled through the course for first place overall but the Tigers had to settle for fourth in the team race.

The Braves had four of the top ten times including the first two racers to cross the line. Senior, Nic Demler, decked out in Luke Skywalker attire, won the race and freshman, Shane Henderson was second. They both finished in under 20 minutes. Kade Smith was fifth overall and Wyatt Peck was ninth in a great Star Valley showing of 30 boys.

The Dairy-air Milk Can Trophy went to Star Valley  with the lowest combined score of 94. Soda Springs was second with 121. Teton rounded out the top three with 144.

The SVXC teams will shed the alter-egos this weekend as they run in the Cardinal Classic in Soda Springs on Saturday.
