Draper’s Cooper Hurl helped his 9-10-year-old team to a fourth-place finish at the USATF Junior Olympics National Championships in College Station, Texas, Dec. 10. He finished the 3,000 meter course in 190th place out of 308 runners which was fifth-best on the Wolfpack Running Club Utah squad. Sydney Glod, of Draper, was part of the 9-10-year-old girls team that came in seventh place, just 20 points behind the top team. She finished 74th among 283 runners, good for third out of the seven Wolfpack RC Utah runners. Other Draper participants at nationals for the Wolfpack program were Lucia Martinez (54th, 11-12-year-olds), Gabe Martinez (176th, 8U), Hunter Hurl (195th, 13-14-year-olds), Orissa Lujan (231st, 11-12-year-olds) and Brody Meier (355th, 13-14-year-olds).
