Also in the boys race, sophomore Teagan Hansen placed seventh (17:37), Andreas Gilson 33rd (20:53) and Zachary Houghton 40th (24:45, a personal best).
The Falcons travel to Folsom, Calif., this Saturday for the Bella Vista Bronco Invitational.
Sierra Lutheran’s volleyball team improved its Western 1A league record to 11-1 Saturday with a 3-0 win against Whittell. Senior Abby Ferenz and sophomore Ciera Schinzing each had seven kills. Juniors Charis Wheeler and Amanda Almeida had seven and six digs respectively.
