Theisen, Calvert win Salmon Run race #1

A pair of Kenai Central High cross-country leaders prevailed on the first night of the Salmon Run Series in Soldotna.

Jordan Theisen, a 2015 KCHS graduate, won the five-kilometer race over the field of 136 runners held on the Tsalteshi Trails with a fast time of 17 minutes, 24 seconds, while incoming Kenai senior Jaycie Calvert crossed the line as the women’s winner in 21:50, taking sixth overall.

Theisen currently attends Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota, with brother, Jonah, and cruised to Wednesday’s win under sunny skies over second-place Bradley Walters, who finished in 19:08. Mike Crawford took third in 20:38.

Calvert beat women’s runner-up Brooke Satathite by 1:15, with third-place Gabriel Juliussen another six seconds back in 23:11.

The five-race series continues next Wednesday with race day registration at 5 p.m. and races at 6 p.m. The series runs each Wednesday night until Aug. 8 at the Tsalteshi Trails behind Skyview Middle School.
