Cedarcrest cross country team speeds up at Lake Sammish invite

The Cedarcrest High School cross country team put in a strong performance Saturday, Sept. 24, at their biggest meet of the season at Lake Sammamish State Park.

Tough competition and a sandy stretch made for a challenge, but up-and-coming Red Wolves made some team gains at the lake. Logan Orndorf and Mitchell Montgomery took second and third on the Cedarcrest top 10 list for this invite, while Amelia Anderson and Diana Carr are now sixth and tenth on the girls list.  Orndorf and Montgomery are the second and third boys on the team to run under 17 minutes and Anderson is only the seventh girl to break the 20-minute mark.

Among other highlights, Gage Catherman, Quinn Radbourne and Olivia Waterman made gains on the course over last year. Kayla Nelson ran three minutes faster than two weeks ago on a similar course, and Justin Mendoza and Dallin Candland also made gains.

The Red Wolves run this weekend at the 13-school Sunfair Invite in Yakima.
