FARMINGTON The Summerville High School boys' and girls' cross country teams finished a distant third and fourth, respectively, at a Mother Lode League meet hosted by Linden at Orvis Ranch yesterday.

"While our times continue to improve and our team running is developing," Summerville coach Wayne DeGennaro said, "we have a ways to go to challenge Calaveras and Bret Harte."

For the third-place boys' team, Arthur Crist's 14th-place finish (20 minutes, 35 seconds) led a tightly-packed group of Bears in the 27-runner race. Also scoring points for Summerville were Ryan Drewery (No. 17, 21:16), Marty Reid (No. 18, 21:35), Thomas Salado-Poor (No. 19, 21:47) and Adam Ferguson (21:55).

With 72 team points, Summerville finished behind Calaveras (25) and Bret Harte (31).

In the girls' race, Lauren Daniels paced the Bears with an 11th-place finish (25:05) Rounding out Summerville's top-five finishers in the 31-runner race were Sara LaTorre (No. 21, 28:20), Cayli Wehmeyer (No. 22, 28:21), Tracy Albuera (No. 24, 29:43) and Rebecca Geissler (No. 27, 30:48).

With 92 team points, Summerville trailed Bret Harte (29), Calaveras (34) and Linden (67).

Frosh-Soph Lauren Daniels (No. 7, 16:13) and Emma Serianni (No. 8, 16:40) posted top-10 finishes in the girls' race as Summerville (54 points) sandwiched a second-place finish between Bret Harte (15) and Linden (68). Also scoring for the Bearcubs were Jenny Brown (No. 13, 17:49), Natalie Rhorer (No. 15, 18:18) and Stephanie Wurz (No. 18, 18:38).
