Enterprise The Stanfield boys and Union girls turned in strong performances Tuesday at the Enterprise Invitational cross country meet at the Alpine Meadows Golf Course.

Behind winner Troy Blackburn, Stanfield threw its hat into the ring as a contender for the district title later this month.

Stanfield won pretty easily, Enterprise coach Dan Moody said. They looked real strong.

Blackburn won the 5,000-meter race in 17 minutes, 25 seconds, more than a half-minute ahead of Union freshman Billy Garrison, who turned in a solid time of his own at 18 minutes flat.

Enterprises Austin Himes was third at 18:03 and Wallowas Patrick Smergut was fourth at 18:20.

The Union girls, fresh off a breakthrough showing Saturday in Richland, Wash., took advantage of a sickness-weakened girls field and had three of the top four runners. Stephanie Upshaw won in 20:42, with Shannon Mitchell second at 20:58 and Ashley Sharratt fourth at 22:20.

Union is just as strong as ever, Moody said.

Wallowas Larae Guillory was third at 21:59.

Enterprise was second in the boys race, with Wallowa third and Union fourth among the four complete teams. Garrisons performance Tuesday gives Union a boost in the race for the top two spots at district, both of which qualify for next months state meet.

Weve got our work cut out for us, Moody said.

Enterprise hosts the pre-district meet Oct. 19 at McKay Park in Pendleton. All area teams except La Grande are scheduled to compete. The Tigers are scheduled to compete Friday in Pendleton.
