A fourth-place finish didn’t damper the solid performance Folsom High’s varsity boys’ cross country team put on during the first Delta River League meet on Wednesday at Granite Regional Park. Sammy Scheuer, Aaron Burkhead and Ryley Hoffman posted the three fastest times by a Folsom runner on the course and as the team the Bulldogs had 10 of the fastest 13 times ever run by a Folsom runner. Folsom finished fourth behind Pleasant Grove, Oak Ridge and Jesuit. Scheuer ran seventh to lead the Bulldogs, finishing in 16 minutes, 22 seconds. Burkhead placed 10th in 16:28 and he was followed by Ryley Hoffman (19th, 16:43) Jon Barrows (24th, 16:58) and David Hanson (25th, 17:09). Scheuer and Barrows had personal-best times by more than 20 seconds, while Burkhead and Hoffman posted times more than a minute faster than their previous bests.
