Twin Falls cross country runner breaks school record
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A Twin Falls High School cross country runner just broke a 10-year school record.
Stockton Stevens ran the Bugtown Invitational in 15.26, eclipsing Eric Harris‘ record by three seconds.
The junior has improved his times over the past few months and increased his training from running 30 miles in a week to now 60.
Currently Stevens’ time is ranked fourth in the 4A classification.
He hopes to earn a Gatorade Runner of the Year award at some point in his career.
“I’ll need to be a state champion, maybe break some records in track this spring and hopefully have some successes as a team too.”
”I know that he’s in a good place, in a good headspace, I’m excited because we get a whole another year with him and our boys team is doing exceptionally well under his leadership,” explained head coach Tonia Burk.
Stevens also ran in the 4A district championship on Thursday at Kasota Park in Heyburn, placing fifth after battling an undisclosed issue on the course.
