Coed Varsity Cross Country · XC runners have excellent day in Connell


I was astounded by how hard our runners worked today on a challenging Connell 5k race course. Our legs were tired coming into the races today after competing in Zillah on Thursday, but regardless, our runners showed heart and grit.

One of our many notable performers was senior Dallin Hawkins, who has been battling asthma inflammation all week. He set the tone for the whole team on the bus, during warm-up and throughout the race, as he cruised to a lifetime personal record. Over half our team had all-time personal record performances today, including all three Hawkins brothers (Dallin(12), Conner(11) & Isaiah(9)).

The girls team were short one runner today to earn a team score, but regardless, they had breakout performances. Freshman, Alexis Fadness had the biggest improvement of time by over a minute better than her previous mark. This girls team is young, but have so much fun together and have tremendous potential
