Cross country runs into the limelight


The cross country runners took center stage Saturday at the always exciting Highlander Invitational. Though Mead's boys team is ranked No. 1 in the nation, the Panthers weren't No. 1 in Spokane on Saturday, as Ferris led the way in the senior boys race.

The Panthers and the Saxons, along with North Central, meet this Wednesday. If you like cross country, this is the GSL race to attend this year.

Speaking of cross country, the Bellingham Herald published its preview today.

There were some football games Saturday in the Puget Sound, including Seattle Prep's victory over Port Angeles. There are also some notes on the end of this.

And there was an abundance of soccer, volleyball, cross country and swimming going on in Yakima.

Vancouver Columbian sports editor Greg Jayne deplores the proliferation of national prep sports coverage, fueled, he believes, by our insatiable need to know.
