We are still waiting for some results to be uploaded into athletic.net so stay tuned. The Freshman Boys race is not yet posted. This year's Invite had an additional 1600 athletes which presented some problems on the course and with results. It is estimated that there were over 3000 athletes participating in the meet. We entered a Varsity Boys Team and Varsity Girls Team in the Gold Division (top competitive division). The JV Boys team and JV Girls team along with a team of 5 freshman boys were also entered. Both JV teams placed 4th. The boys were led by Ian Streams and Torin Carmichael who placed 22nd and 23rd respectively. The girls top finisher was Swathi Padmanabhan in 14th. The Varsity Gold Division featured some of the top teams and athletes in the state. The boys varsity was led by Sam Griffith's 16th place as the team finished 12th out of 24. Julia David-Smith won the race leading the girls team to a 3rd place finish out of 16 teams. Results will continue to be uploaded into athletic.net. Congratulations to all the athletes who competed very well in a huge meet. Thanks to all the fans and family who made their way down to Tacoma to cheer on the Eagles!

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.
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.
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!
In addition to the two varsity team championships yesterday at Kingco, the JV Girls finished 2nd to Inglemoor by two points and the JV Boys team won beating Skyline by one point!
What a great way to finish the season!
Results are now posted for both meets on athletic.net.
Congratulations to the boys varsity team who started the day by winning the Kingco 4A League Championships followed an hour later with the girls varsity team winning the 4A Girls League Championship title.
In addition to winning league championships, both varsity teams earned the regular season dual meet titles. Congratulations on showing great consistency throughout the season!
All-Kingco First Team Honors went to Luke George and Sam Griffith for the boys team.

A great day of racing in the mud and rain for the entire team!
