ShareCedarcrest was able to host our only home meet of the year at the Carnation Golf Course. We had a special visitor with the boys squad from Iolani HS (Honolulu) over for a mainland visit. A flat course combined with quality competition led to some very fast times.
Top to bottom, it was our best performance of the year. Not just fast times. I was really pleased with our overall competitive drive. That was the piece that brought along our fast times. We are over two thirds of the season and now that we are finally in shape, it is starting to pay off.
Individually, we had great running up front (as has been the case all year). Mitchell Montgomery and Logan Orndorf ran 1-2 as we put five boys in the top 11. Diana Carr and Amelia Anderson finished 3-4 as we put five girls in the top 11.
In both team races, it was a very similar story. The top three girls teams and the top two boys teams in the conference were competing. Halfway through the races, it was a tight battle with us slightly ahead. But our number five through seven runners ran solid last miles and helped push us to victory.
We were able to put our number sixes and sevens in front of their number fives. The girls scored 34 to beat King’s by 15. The boys scored 26 to beat Lakewood by 25.
Our athletes of the meet were Cody Wanichek, Zach Wyakos, Miranda Vergillo and Madison Smith. Congrats to them and everyone else on the team for running solid races.
Thanks to the Tachells and everyone else at the Carnation Golf Course for letting us having the “Nation” as our home course.
