BEAR RIVER HIGH - By Tate Atkin, Headliner Sports Editor, September 7, 2022
Bear River High's cross-country team has already competed in three pre-season races this year starting with a rare home meet where they hosted Region 11's Ridgeline High and Logan High on August 31, at the Garland City Park. Scores and times for that meet were unavailable by press time.
Following last week's home meet, the team took on the 2022 Cardinal Classic on September 3, held at the Kelly Park Nordic Ski Trails in Soda Springs, Idaho. The meet brought together 32 teams from across Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming and a big way to start the 2022 season.
The Bear River boys' team was impressive as they had an overall team score of 238, which was good enough to capture 8th place out of the 32 teams that competed. They were just once point shy of 7th place.
