Once again Spokane area runners were outstanding at the state cross country meet.
There were eight team trophies for the boys, highlighted by championships for North Central (the Indians fifth straight) and Lakeside, and five for the girls, with Riverside winning 1A.
As for individuals, Greater Spokane League runners were 1-2 in 4A (Lewis and Clark’s Kenji Bierig/Mead’s Andrew Gardner) and 3A (Shadle Park’s Nathan Weitz/NC’s Vince Hamilton) and second in 3A (NC’s Katie Knight) and B girls (Colfax’s Morgan Willson) and third in 2A (Cheney’s Sanne Holland) and 1A (Riverside’s Jess Mildes).
Andrew Gardner (above in a great Chris Anderson photo) is one of many outstanding young distance runners in Spokane that should make for an interesting - and successful - cross country season. However, the Mead sophomore’s story is quite different from most. Gardner was the subject of our GSL cross country preview feature that ran on Tuesday.
