What a fantastic day for the Eagle runners who were flying high recording personal record after personal record! The weather cooperated which made for a fast course. The competition was incredible with countless top 10 Washington state ranked teams from all classifications. In addition, there were teams from California, Utah and Hawaii.
The Eagles started the day with the Frosh/Soph Boys team finishing 3rd out of 22 teams led by freshman Jerry Imai-Takemura’s (17:17) 4th place finish. All Issaquah runners had PRs in this race.
Next up were the “Fast” JV Girls who placed 4th out of 12 teams. Swathi Padmanabhan (20:54) was our top finisher in 9th and led 5 of the 7 runners to lifetime personal records.
The “Fast” JV Boys race had our top team finish of the day. They placed 2nd out of 28 teams. Seven of the nine boys had lifetime PRs. The team was led by Torin Carmichael who finished 5th in 17:08.
Both the boys and girls varsity teams were entered in the fast division. The boys team placed 13th out of 38 and was led by Sam Griffith’s 34th place in a time of 15:55. Five of the seven boys had personal records and Sam tied his from the Bellevue Invite.
For the varsity girls team that finished 5th out of 40 schools, six of the seven runners had lifetime PRs. Julia David-Smith was the overall winner in a new course record time of 17:16!
