There was good news and bad news at last weekend’s Richland Invitational cross country meet.
The good news is that Mead’s girls were team winners and the boys finished second ahead of Ferris. Bad news for the boys is that three Saxon runners finished in front of Mead’s first placer. In a dual meet, that assures a team victory.
The two teams race for the Greater Spokane League title next Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at Whitworth College.
Stephanie Goaslind finished fifth overall in 19:07 during the girls race, and Lynde Johnson placed 11th in 19:35.2.
Mead’s boys placed between 17th and 40th overall, with David Green running 16:18, Ryan Wiser 16:22, Jason Fayant 16:23 and Mark Mohrlang 16:28.
Riverside’s Jon Ashcraft was 26th in 16:25, and Nick Barth ran 16:29.
