Westside running star Cameron Davis has his eyes on the prize.
Davis, who won the 5K run at Saturday's Bear Hole Road Race at Twin Falls, is aiming high for this fall's cross country season.
"I want to win a state championship and finish in the top 20 in the Foot Locker regionals," he said.
Davis ran a 16:48 on Saturday, a time that surprised him a little.
"I wasn't expecting to run that fast," he commented. "I expected my time to be around 17:30."
Cool, overcast conditions helped. "I looked at my watch at the half-way point and I thought, this might be better (than I expected)," Davis remarked. "Then I let the hills help me (going downhill)."
Cross country season begins in a few weeks with Westside scrimmaging Wyoming East.
"If I work really hard, I think (the state championship) is obtainable," he commented.
Zane England was second in the 5K at 20:11, and Jeremy Jeffrey took third in 20:30.
Brooke Bias won the women's division in 24:37. Kelly Mann and Renee Ferris took second and third, respectively.
Nick Bias, a former winner of the 10 K run, returned to the top with a 36:22 time, over two minutes ahead of runner-up Nick Whited.
Jenny Flaim won the women's division, followed by Kayla McClung and Jennifer Alvarez.
The one-mile children's fun run was won by Hayden Ferris on the girl's side and Phillip Fox for the boys.
