In its final meet of the season, Cedarcrest High School’s cross-country squads earned the honor of being undefeated this year. Both the boys and girls teams won the team competition against South Whidbey and Kings at South Whidbey High School Wednesday, Oct. 11

“We had a good day of racing today,” said Cedarcrest head coach Bruce McDowell. “From our veterans to our rookies, we probably had our best overall race in a couple weeks.”

The girls team won the team event by only three points, with eight runners placing in the top 14 of the race. The boys won handily, with 11 runners in the top 13, McDowell said.

Athletes of the meet were Kelly Hall, Katelyn Wells, Austin Ward, Ryan LaTurner, Sawyer Swart, and Daniel Murphy.

The team runs again Thursday, Oct. 19 in the Cascade Conference Cross Country Championships, on their home course at the Blue Heron Golf Course in Carnation. The girls race starts at 4 p.m., the boys at 4:45 p.m.

“Based upon our races this year, we are hoping to win both team titles,” McDowell said. “The boys are looking to win their third consecutive conference championship and their sixth in the last eight years. The girls are looking to win their 10th consecutive conference championship.
