Speedy Dutton wins time trial

Heather Dutton doesn’t even warm-up at half-speed.
The Fort Frances Muskie cross-country runner set the table for a winning weekend by breaking the tape first to win the senior girls’ division of the SSSAA time trial last Wednesday (Sept. 24) in Thunder Bay.
The victory served as foreshadowing for Dutton, who went on to team with Aracelli Vasquez to capture the team relay competition at the 21st-annual Walker North Country Marathon/Team Relay/10-km event in Walker, Mn. this past Saturday.
Muskie Sandy Elliott finished fifth in the same division while black-and-gold’s other runners all placed in the top 15 at the season’s first meet (official results were not available at press time).
The next cross-country competition is scheduled Oct. 8, with the NWOSSAA finals slated Oct. 17.
