The sun was out in full force to provide a splendid afternoon of racing at Fort Walla Walla. Our Hawks XC runners turned in some excellent performances. I’m continually impressed at each meet by how much more each runner digs deeper to show greater fortitude and stamina.
Our girls started off the racing for the day with personal record performances by Lauren Green, Chloe Svilich, Alexis Fadness and Madison Thompson. This team is young and determined! Keep working hard ladies! You are such a blast to be around!
The boys team raced next and they kept the high level of energy that the girls set for the day. Five boys sets personal records over the 5k course: Cameron Howard, Luke Christensen, Zeke Durand, Aaron Middlemas & Isaac Miller. Overall the boys team inched closer to Connell, but still wound up in 2nd place, but ahead of Naches Valley & Toppenish. The varsity boys were led by freshman Jio Herrera, junior Josh Courtney, seniors Cameron Howard & Dallin Hawkins, and sophomore Jacob Courtney.
Our team travels to Toppenish next Wendesday March 10th to wrap up our regular season racing.
