Sammamish and Liberty dominated in the lady's side of the

Note: In last week's summary of the Mount Si, Newport and
Mercer Island meet, the Valley Record inadvertently left out Payton
Thompson's name. Thompson finished second with a time of 17:10 for the
three-mile course. Our congratulations to him, and apologies for the oversight.
