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!

Congratulations to the boys and girls that qualified to the penultimate event of their high school careers. It is a significant accomplishment since qualifying meant that they had to be finish in the top two in the finals of the district meet or achieve a qualifying standard for their event.
