Tooele High School Cross Country 2019

Tooele County harriers put themselves on the map during the 2019 high school cross-country season, as the Stansbury boys won their second Class 4A team state championship in the past three seasons — and that was only part of it.

Stansbury senior Carson Belnap was Class 4A’s individual boys champion, as he won last week’s championship race at Salt Lake City’s Sugar House Park in dominant fashion. Meanwhile, Grantsville senior Porter Whitworth brought home his second consecutive Class 3A  individual championship, holding off a late charge to cap his high school career in style.

The Grantsville boys and girls teams each finished fifth overall, with the girls earning academic state champion status. Stansbury’s girls and Tooele’s boys and girls all performed well in their final races of the season at the state meet as well.
