NC’s Knight, Shadle Park among runners-up
PASCO – Gold was a little hard to come by for area girls at the state cross country meet at Sun Willows Golf Course – Riverside won the 1A championship – but there were plenty of outstanding performances, including a couple of amazing records.
Riverside scored 80 points to beat King’s by 20 points.
“Trees are full of leaves and as the season progresses there’s only a few left,” third-place finisher Jess Mildes said, pointing to a preserved leaf she and her teammates pinned to their warmups. “That’s how runners are, you want to be the last runner on the tree. All runners go through hard things, then you have to hold on.”
“A lot of their success is because they do it for each other,” Riverside coach Tim Hart said. “We’ve had a lot of girls with injuries, one since July, and the reason she kept going is the fact is it’s not for her, it’s for her team. That’s the attitude of all seven girls. It’s something pretty special.”
For silver there was North Central’s Katie Knight in the 3A race joined by the Shadle Park team; Cheney in the 2A; and Colfax’s Morgan Willson and Northwest Christian in the 2B/1B.
That doesn’t include two amazing performances.
Running alone to win by 1 minute, 50 seconds, Maddie Meyers of Northwest shaved 1 second off the course record of Mt. Spokane’s Megan O’Reilly, who was there to watch. Meyers won her third straight 1A title in 17:34.
But unlike O’Reilly, who held her record for five years, Meyers’ lasted for 1 hour, 59 minutes and 58 seconds. With Knight pushing her, Glacier Peak’s Amy-Eloise Neale won the 3A race in 17:31.8.
