EUGENE — Wallowa freshman Hayley Oveson was trying to get out fast at the start of the Class 2A/1A state cross country championships Saturday.

Her strategy worked as she finished second in 19 minutes, 31 seconds.

"I was really excited," she said. "I was very excited. I was happy to be where I was."

Oveson said she was nervous and intimidated, but it was nice to warm up with a full team around her and to have people who had been there before, such as teammate Larae Guillory.

Guillory ended her fourth trip to state in 12th place (21:19). Wallowa finished sixth overall.

A train of cars led Wallowa's two vans back into town Sunday, Oveson said, and it was really nice to have that kind of community support.

Meanwhile, a strong Union girls' team won its seventh state title.

"It feels absolutely awesome," junior Ashley Sharratt said. She finished seventh (20:29). "I'm very excited we won."

Sharratt said it was extremely competitive because six teams wanted the title.

"All of them had a chance to win," she said. "We got it."

Junior Shannon Mitchell, Sharratt's teammate, said the feeling she got was so great because everyone had the opportunity to wear a medal for winning that championship. She finished fifth (20:12).

After the race, Mitchell said she and Sharratt told a reporter that Union had heart and ran like a team because everyone on the team counts and that is what makes a state champion team.

Union's third, fourth and fifth runners had good races, coach Steve Sheehy said.

Sophomore Kara Baxter was 43rd (22:44), sophomore Krystal Papineau 44th (22:44) and senior Jill Vorderstrasse was 47th (22:54).

Enterprise's freshman Julie Vernarsky was 31st (22:12) and sophomore Nicole Anderson 45th (22:48).
