Red Wolves compete in state championship

A thundering herd of 3A, 2A and 4A thinclads took to Sun Willows

Golf Course on Saturday, Nov. 6, for this year's cross country state

championships. When the dust had settled and the final times were

tallied, Cedarcrest's James Conrick and Kelly Ramirez had finished in the top 40

of their respective events.

The two were the only Valley representatives at this year's

season-ending meet. In the boys' race, Conrick finished the 3.1-mile course with

a time of 16:31, good for 21st place. Ramirez recorded a 20:22, giving

her 34th place.

Peter Furia of Lakeside High School won the 3A men's event

with a 15:51, leading his school to the team championship over Seattle

Prep, Eastmont, Cheney and Bellevue.

As expected, in the girls' competition, Newport High School came

in first, in front of Eastmont, Mercer Island, Stanwood and Blanchet.

However, Seattle Prep's Megan Johnson won the race with a time of

18:27. Newport's ace, Jodee Adams-Moore, placed second by a margin of five
