Cedarcrest HS Cross Country – Regular Season Highlights

  • Written by By Bruce McDowell, Head Coach
The 2018 season was going to be a season of change for the Cedarcrest High School cross country team.  Both the boys’ and girls’ squads finished in the top 10 at state in 2017.  However, four of the top five girls graduated and six of the top eight boys graduated or moved.  The team had also moved from being a member of the 2A/1A Cascade Conference to the 4A/3A/2A WESCO Conference.  It would be a step up in competition while trying to rebuild a team with many new members to the varsity squad.
 
The first invite of the season was the Tahoma Co-ed Relays held at Lake Wilderness Park in Maple Valley.  “The A-Team” of Brennan LeBlanc, Cade LaTurner, Lauren Krause, Sonja Blycker and Ryan LaTurner ran super and finished 9th overall.  It was a good promising start to the season.

Cedarcrest cross country runners do well at State

  • Written by Bruce McDowell, Coach

Saturday, the CXC squad competed at the WIAA State Championship meet. The meet was held at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco where it has been held for 20+ years. Besides the fact that it is the state meet, it is a big day of racing as all five classification races are held for both genders. For those who don’t pay attention to such things, Cedarcrest is a 2A school which is the middle classification for this meet.

Cedarcrest Cross Country results Oct. 29

Today [Saturday, October 29] the CXC squad competed at the Northwest District 1 Championships held at South Whidbey H.S.  It is always easy and fun to write meet reports when the races went well and we met our goals.  Writing these reports when we didn’t accomplish everything we had hoped for is not as easy.  First off the weather and course report.  For those not in the area on Saturday, it pretty much rained for most of Saturday morning.  That brought lots of mud and wet ground.  Eventually the sun came out but by then the damage was done.  Even dry, this course isn’t the easiest or fastest course around.  Of course, since districts is the state qualifying meet, the meet is all about placing well.  For both the boys and girls races, it would be top 3 teams and top 21 individuals.

Thursday, Oct. 6, the CXC squad competed at a Cascade Conference meet at South Whidbey H.S.  

This course is the same course that we will run in 3 weeks for the District Championship meet. So, it was a good opportunity to preview the course for our District squad. Some of our top runners went out a little conservative for the first mile but after that it was game on. Even with that restriction, almost all of our district returners from last year ran about the same time today that they did at last year’s district meet.  In other words, we ran super!
