HOLLADAY -- The rest of Region 11 was overwhelmed by a wave of orange on Wednesday at the region cross country championships at Cottonwood Complex.
"I'm almost embarrassed by how well we did," said Ogden coach Don Hall, who guideded his 40th and 41st region titles in his 20 seasons. "Still, winning region never gets old."
The Ogden girls ran 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 to sweep the league championships, while the Ogden boys outdueled defending state 3-A champion Bear River for the region title.
Hall was just as pleased that his junior varsity teams were also dominant in the early races, as well as the runs of medalists Jamie Stokes and Jordan Cross.
In the girls race, Stokes, Ogden's only senior, outran her teammates by 30 seconds on the 2.9-mile course.
"I felt really good about my race, something I really needed going into state," Stokes said. "I was sick in our last big race, but I think this shows I'm prepared for state.
"And we're really proud of the boys team and how focused they are."
Following Stokes (17:24.6) was Sara Feeny, Melissa Garrett, Sara Mathewson, Jessica Sams, Aubrey Barton and Sierra Lawrence.
Stansbury was second overall, with Grantsville third, followed by Bear River, Morgan and Ben Lomond.
Morgan's Andrea Millburn finished eighth overall, with Ben Lomond's Majerle Zundel 12th and Bear River's Katelyn Cunning 14th to lead their respective schools.
On the boys side, Jordan Cross and Mike Buckley ran 1-2 as Ogden tallied 28 points to edge Bear River with 43.
Stansbury and Grantsville ran third and fourth, followed by Ben Lomond, Morgan and Tooele.
"I only had a five-second lead for much of the race, but I put the hammer down in the final mile," Cross said. "We knew Bear River is a strong team, but we are focused as a team right now."
Cross ran in 15:11.5, with Buckley at 15:37.5.
Bear River's Brackon Rawlinson, Tanner Anderson and Spencer Stamps race fourth, fifth and six, but Ogden's Dayton Wright and Carson Garner were right behind them. Justin Sheets finished 10th to cap the scoring, with teammate Pedro DeLeon 11th.
Ben Lomond's Sterling Brandley led the Scots with a ninth-place run. Morgan's top runner was Jackson Ward at No. 25.
Region 5 championships
Bonneville used a strong team effort to claim the hotly-contested Region 5 cross country championships on Wednesday evening at American West Heritage Center.
The Lakers edged Sky View, with Mountain Crest and Box Elder in the mix as well. Logan and Roy rounded out the order of finish under perfect crisp running conditions in Cache Valley.
Mountain Crest ran past Box Elder and the rest of the region for the girls title. Sky View finished third, followed by Roy, Logan and Bonneville.
Box Elder's Adam Hendrickson won the boys 3-mile race in 15:39, edging Logan's Jerrell Mock and a pair of Sky View runners.
But Bonneville's Abe Weeks, Colby Wayment, Andrew Penman and Colby Myers run 5-6-7-8 to push the Lakers to the team title.
On the girls side, Box Elder's Kelsey Braithwaite matched Hendrickson with the individual title. She ran in 17:39, with three Mountain Crest runners in her dust behind her.
Box Elder's Hannah Malone finished eight overall.
The top runners and teams will now prepare for the state cross country championships, set for next Wednesday at Sugarhouse Park and Highland High School.
