SUTTER CREEK Summerville High School finished second in both the varsity boys' and girls' divisions of a Mother Lode League cross country meet Wednesday at Amador High.

The boys, led by fourth-place Bryce Spitze, had 45 points to come in eight behind Calaveras (37). Bret Harte had 53 and Linden 89.

Spitze covered three miles of dry hills, blacktop, steep ramps, grass and a narrow bridge in 17 minutes, 21 seconds. Travis Ford was seventh for the Bears in 18:21, T.T. Geissler ninth in 18:40, Matt Welch 10th in 18:45 and Adam Ferguson 23rd in 23:51.

"The varsity boys had an outstanding performance," Summerville coach Wayne DeGennaro said.

The Bears were without two of their top five (Marc Pruitt and Ryan Drewery) and DeGennaro moved up sophomores Welch and Ferguson to take up the slack.

For the girls, Lauren Daniels bounced back from a did-not-finish last week at Linden to come in sixth in 22:05 as Summerville was outpointed by Bret Harte, 24-32.

"That's a nice score," DeGennaro said, noting that his Bears are gaining on the archrival Bullfrogs.

Rachel Young was seventh in 22:49, Courtney Welch eighth in 22:54, Jennifer Baker 11th in 2:55 and Kellie Pierce 12th in 24:08.

Linden rounded out the scoring with 76 points.

Summerville is entered in the Nevada Union Invitational on Saturday in Grass Valley. After that are in MLL meet next Wednesday at Frogtown in Angels Camp and the Frogtown Invitational the following Saturday on the same course.

The Bears have withdrawn from the Stanford Invitational, the date of which has been changed and now conflicts with Frogtown.
