Cross Country Kingco Championships
In the first of our 3 post-season meets for our varsity squad, our TEAM showed that they are ready for the competition ahead. Overall, our athletes walked away with 10 All-Kingco individual performances, an individual runner-up finish, a second place team finish and a first place team finish.
Starting with our boys, who took care of business in a big way. Going up against #1 ranked Eastlake, our squad raced, and raced well. The Eagles were led by junior Connor R (2nd, 15:43.2, First Team All-Kingco), senior Brennen R (4th, 15:57.5, First Team All-Kingco), junior Henry T (5th, 15:59.0, First Team All-Kingco), junior Alexander Y (6th, 16:00.8, First Team All-Kingco), junior Robert F (13th, 16:47.6, Second Team All-Kingco) and sophomore Nathaniel L (16:54.0, Second Team All-Kingco) — putting on a show in the team race, scoring 30 points over #4 ranked Redmond’s 53 point effort. This is an incredible way to start the momentum of our post-season, and absolutely something for us to build on top of!
Onto girls, who put up about as good a fight as they could have. Going up against #1 ranked Mt Si, #4 ranked Skyline, and #5 ranked Eastlake, our squad raced well. Led by junior Sena P (5th, 18:35.7, First Team All-Kingco) and senior Jane H (8th, 18:43.7, Second Team All-Kingco) — along with freshman Sally D (12th, 18:54.9, Second Team All-Kingco), junior Riley E (21st, 19:27.6), junior Elena G (22nd, 19:30.4), sophomore Allison H (23rd, 19:31.0, PR), and junior Liv J (24th, 19:33.6) — all running amazing races and finishing a close second place as a team to Mt Si (45-68). While a Kingco trophy didn’t return home with us for the girl’s team, this performance gives us an incredible point to take off from.
