September 7: The Conference Preview saw Madi
Shinn the individual winner and the girls' squad finished first in the
team score. Five girls finished in the top 10. On the boys'
side, Grant Van Valkenburg was the
individual winner and the boys' squad finished first in the team race.
September 10: The Tahoma Relays, a co-ed event, saw "The
A-Team" finish in the top ten. In running order, the squad of
Grant Van Valkenburg, Ian Fay, Ben Benson,
Alicia Krivanek and Madi
Shinn finished sixth overall against a very stellar field. Athletes of
the meet were Ryan LaTurner, Bennett Smith,
Katelyn Wells and Helen Lutzenhiser.
September 17: The
Apple Ridge Invite, in an
apple orchard, west of Yakima.
In Race One, a relatively
flat course, our two highest placers for both genders were Ben Benson
(2nd), Justin Young (13th), Lily Krueger (2nd) and Elsie Dombek (4th).
In Race Two, building in a
couple uphill climbs, we scored with Grant Van Valkenburg
(1st), Daniel Murphy (8th), Madi Shinn (2nd)
and Kate Vergillo (7th). Race Three has one
of the those uphill climbs for the second
race. But at two miles, there is a long 600m climb that is not for the
faint of heart. Our top scorers were Ian Fay (2nd), Emmett Klaiber (5th), Alicia Krivanek
(3rd) and Megan Reid (6th). Athletes of the Meet were Ben Benson,
Daniel Murphy, Alex Perry, Lily Krueger and Elsie Dombek.
September 24: The Bellevue Invite, held at Lake Sammamish State
Park. With 40+ teams at this meet, we were hoping for top 10
performances by the different squads. The kids more than exceeded that.
Our Open Boys finished 8th. Our J.V. Girls finished 9th. Then our
Varsity kids really took it to another level with both finishing
5th. The only teams that beat us were 4A schools and for both
genders, three of the four teams that beat us are ranked 4A schools.
Our Athletes of the Meet were Austin Ward, Gideon Bender, Kaden
Overman, Kelly Hall, Alison Swift and Sama
October 1: The Sunfair Invite in
Yakima. This course is a totally different course and quite simply,
there is not a lot of flat. This meet has quite a few class and JV
races before Varsity flight races. First race started at 9:30.
Last race went at 3:30. In the non-varsity races, we had 9 boys (out of
16) and 6 girls (out of 7) come away with top-50 ribbons. For the
varsity races, it is seven flights and all seven flights are scored.
For these races, the top 15 gets medals. We came away with all
seven boys and five girls placing in the top 15.
Our Athletes of the Meet were Ian Fay, Alicia Krivanek, Chase Bolin, Emmett Klaiber
and Brady Shaw. Also in the running were Kelly Hall, Elsie Dombeck, Alison Swift and Connor Eck. For this
meet, all schools that are 2A (our classification) and smaller are
lumped together in the battle for trophies for the top three teams. The
boys finished first amongst the "small schools" while the
girls finished second. Both squads were 9th overall.
October 6: Cedarcrest vs. South Whidbey High School. The girls ran first
and finished first in the team race. We were led at the front by
Alicia Krivanek (1st), Madi
Shinn (2nd) and Lily Krueger (3rd). Rounding out our scoring five were
Kelly Hall (5th) and Mary Cate Babcock (6th). The boys ran second and
also finished first overall. We were led at the front by Ian Fay
(1st), Grant Van Valkenburg (2nd) and Ben
Benson (3rd). Rounding out our scoring five were Emmett Klaiber (8th) and Chase Bolin (10th).
Athletes of the Meet were
Patrick McCabe, Briggs Hansen, Connor Eck, Cecelia Kiesow,
Anna Christensen and Anna Parker.
13: The CXC squad
finished up the regular season with a meet at King's HS with South
Whidbey in attendance as well. The course was an unusual distance of
2.4 miles and was ran on the bark trails running through the woods
surrounding the King's campus.
For the girls
squad, we finished first in the meet and finished the season
undefeated. Alicia Krivanek was the overall
winner with Madi Shinn the runner-up. The
meet was another good show of our overall depth. Six of the girls
finished in the top 10 and we put ten girls in the first 18. The boys
squad also finished first in the meet and also finished the season
undefeated. Ben Benson was the overall winner with Grant Van Valkenburg the runner-up. Similar to the girls race, we had some nice depth to our finish.
Six of the boys finished in the top 10 and we put eleven boys in the
Our Athletes of the Meet were Jackson Frank, Brodie Robertson, Jake
Ward, Mary Cate Babcock, Ginger Van Valkenburg
