What an amazing day of racing on a beautiful spring day! Although it was very different from what a cross country final normally looks like the vibe and results felt familiar, teams competing, fans cheering and athletes putting on their best effort to work as a team.
Individual titles were won by Viking runners in both the Girls Varsity and Boys Varsity races by freshman Ella Budden and sophomore Jacob Schutt, respectively. Ella ran a PR for the distance and set a new Inglemoor girls 9th grade record of 19:19.9; and Jacob perservered in a very close race by one second 17:37.2! Both of these athletes put in a tremendous amount of time from last fall and through the winter to realize these accomplishments, and well deserved wins.
On the team competition a big shout out to our Varsity Girls coming in 2nd and beating WHS by one point. It came down to our #5 runner, freshman Lily Bailey who stayed ahead of their #5 runner to give us the lower score.
In the JV Girls race neither Bothell nor NC had enough girls to score but the Vikings beat the WHS Falcons by two points. Our team was led by sophomore Josephine Anderson and senior Kaitlin Angeles tying at the line! Sophomore Ali Snowden, followed by veteran seniors Jessica Carbaugh, Gillian Sparks and Lydia Morgan came next. Junior Sophie Delaney rounded out the top 7.
Our Boys JV also finished second in the four-team competition placing Joel Pratt (9th gr), Riley Heike (11th gr), Caden Whitmire (9th gr), Max Wang (12th gr), Liam Gould (9th gr) in our scoring positions and Kazuki Steinmetz (12th gr) and Xavier Dussart (9th gr) rounding out the top 7. Great showing for the freshman boys!
There were many personal and season best times run on Saturday. Since we had run this same course on March 17 it was very easy to see how big of an improvement the runners had made. It was great to see all the hard work of training pay off. All the results can be found on Track & Field, Cross Country Results, Statistics (athletic.net)
Thank you to all the parents and fans who came out to cheer on our athletes, we could not be more appreciative of all the support.
