Carter has edge for LTCC home meet at STHS

If any runner has an edge for Lake Tahoe Community College’s home cross country meet on Friday at South Tahoe High, it’s Grant Carter.

After all, Carter competed on the Vikings course throughout his high school career.

“I’m anticipating Grant to win the whole meet, but he has two Butte guys ahead of him. One finished 5 seconds ahead of him and the other 30 at the San Francisco meet,” said LTCC coach Terry Adams-Schmidt. “But I think he can pull it off.”

The Kokanee won’t start a full men’s or women’s team in a meet that will be attended by Butte and Yuba colleges.

The men will compete in a 4-mile race, while the women will stride for 2.3 miles. Racing begins at 3:30 p.m.

The Kokanee, who train on the STHS course every Monday, are one runner short of a full team. While the event doesn’t have the home feel that it had at LTCC, it still gives the Kokanee a chance to run in front of family and friends and compete against foes they routinely travel three or four hours to reach.

“This meet is very important to us,” Adams-Schmidt said. “I wish we would have more spectators come out. I thought about bringing it back on campus, but we have no showers on campus. South Tahoe has such a great course, and it’s important that we have the meet here and draw the community into it. “
