Ethan Danforth is a junior runner for Canyon’s boys track and field team. He came in fourth place in the 3200-meter race at the CIF State Finals Meet at Buchanan High School last Saturday, logging a time of nine minutes, .30 seconds. The time marked a new record for Danforth, who beat his previous fastest time by three seconds.
Canyon Track and Field coach Paul Broneer commented on his additional achievements:
“Ethan was also the CIF Division 2 Cross Country Champion this fall, and his XC team finished 7th in the State Meet this year. He will lead next year’s team with six varsity runners returning. Ethan finished this season strong, setting five (personal records) in his last six races. He fell just .3 seconds short of his goal to break the nine minute barrier. Very few juniors achieve this feat.”
