All results

TOO MANY IMPROVEMENTS from last year to count! We are all SO excited to see how you guys improve throughout the season. If you weren’t happy with how you raced, remember that there’s a whole season of training and racing and getting stronger to come…and you’ll always have teammates to be excited for who were happy with their races. Keep working hard, believing in yourselves, and having fun with each other!

Special thanks to upperclassmen for leading the young ones through warm-ups and showing them the ropes. We LOVE to see that. Keep up the great leadership.

Girls Team finishes 3rd and Boys Team 6th at 2017 State XC Championships

On a typical rainless day in Pasco, the two Issaquah teams came to do their best at the 2017 state meet. It was a little chilly but dry day and the course was in excellent shape.

Podium girls

The girls ran first finishing third behind Lewis and Clark and Camas. Led by the All-State finishes of Kenna Clawson (8th)  and Sami Corman (9th), the girls had solid races. As defending state champions, they experienced the feeling of having a “target” on their backs. They raced well and look forward to next week’s Nike Cross Regional Northwest 2017 race in Boise.

Issaquah Boys at state

The boys ran the final race of the day and saved their best performance of the year for this meet. Led by Luke George’s All-State 9th place finish, the team placed 6th out of the 16 qualifying teams, an improvement over their 2016 9th place finish. Five of the seven runners had lifetime personal records. As a team, it does not get much better than that! A shout-out to Sam Griffith who broke 16:00 for the first time placing 26th. The boys team will also be competing next weekend in Boise.

Good luck to both teams next week!
