Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it. As per my last column (“Next generations resetting our world,” Tribune, Sept. 15), I reported on the idea that as certain society systems collapse, the next generations will step forward and “reset” our trajectory. (See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)

Forget running with the bulls. For those interested in doing something really scary, something that will get the heart pumping and leave you breathless try running with the Mountain Lions. Few dare to try and even fewer succeed. The Mountain Ridge High School has had one of the top girls cross country programs in the state for the last decade. Region championships have been an annual right of passage and top 10 finishes at the 5A state meet have been almost a given. Despite all their success, including a third-place finish at last year's 5A Div-I state meet, this year's Mountain Lions squad opened the 2007 season by doing something no other Mountain Ridge team has done. At Saturday's Peaks Invitational in Flagstaff, the kickoff to the cross country season for many programs, Mountain Ridge raced to the team title at Buffalo Park. "I thought it was realistic that we could win it, but it's still a great accomplishment," said Mountain Ridge coach Don Tate, whose team took third at the event last year. "The fact that we were able to beat Chinle, Flagstaff and Page, three teams that were ranked ahead of us in the preseason coach's poll, was encouraging." Tate said solid training this summer allowed his team to overcome the 7,000-foot elevation that Chinle, Flagstaff and Page train in regularly. "The girls really prepared well and it showed," he said. "I think it also helped that we went up the night before, let the girls get acclimated a little bit. I know some teams drove up that morning, which had to be tough. Leading the way for Mountain Ridge in the 21-team Summit Division was defending state champion Nadya Bishton who raced around the 5K course in a winning time of 19:43.7., besting the field of 144. Tate said the race was decided early. "After the first 100 meters, Nadya was in the lead to stay.They have a narrow starting line at the event and Nastia (Bishton) got boxed in early. She came out of it after maybe 400 meters and started chasing Nadya, but she was already quite a ways behind." While the Bishton sisters finished 1-2, with Nastia finishing in a time of 19:55.9, it was more than a sister act for the Mountain Lions. All five Mountain Lions finished in the top 30 with senior Kateli Radosevich finishing 24th, in a time of 22:59.8. Marina Trent, another senior, crossed the finish line in 23:11.9 and sophomore Frani Catania claimed 29th by posting a time of 23:18.8 to give the Mountain Lions a winning team total of 78, 19 points better than second place Chinle, which finished with 97 points. The highlights didn't end there. In the open race, Mountain Ridge placed four runners in the top 10, including a second-place showing from freshman Nathalie Nguyen, a time that would have been good enough to finish 21st in the summit race. "Since she's a freshman I thought this would be a good opportunity for her to get some confidence, but if she keeps running that way certainly she'll run in our top 7," Tate said. Mountain Ridge's coach said the team's goal is a top two finish at state, tabbing Xavier as the toughest challenger. He said this year's team is driven by last year's third-place showing which the team felt could have been stronger if not for an injury and an illness at the state meet. "That has certainly motivated the girls," he said. "I don't know if this will turn out to be the best team we've had at Mountain Ridge but I already know it's the deepest." Among the other Northwest Valley teams that competed in Flagstaff, the Centennial boys, led by senior Jared Penner, finished 17th out of 21 teams for the boys in the summit race. Penner finished 50th out of 136 runners. The Centennial girls finished 21 out of 21 in the summit race. Their best finisher was junior Bianca Miano who finished in a time of 25:21.1 to take 83rd place. In the ascent race, s the Mountain Ridge boys placed second in an 18-team field led by sophomore Cameron Sullivan, whose time of 18:56.4 was good for sixth place, more than 32 seconds off the winning time of Arcadia's Brenden Hernandez. From the Desert West Region, the Ironwood Eagles finished ninth while the Sunrise Mountain Mustangs were 17th. The Eagles top finisher was senior Coury Nathan who took 22nd (20:25.0), while Mustangs senior Paul Chagolla finished 32nd. In the girl's ascent race, Ironwood finished fifth out of 11 schools, led by the senior-freshman duo of Dahlia Strack and Kelly Kobashigawa who finished 17th (24:28.3) and 18th (24:29.4).
