Success and Disappointment at the District Meet

Mohamud continued his winning ways at the West Central District meet, winning by :09. He is the Seamount League Champ, the Sub-District Champ, and the West Central District champ. Great job Mo!

The boys team took second place in the meet, qualifying for the state meet. Our boys team has qualified for state eight years in a row, and 10 of the past 11 years.

The girls team just missed a state berth, finishing in 6th place (the top 5 qualify). Two of our girls qualified individually, however. Thuong ran an impressive race, finishing 7th. Christine also ran a very strong 21st place finish.

The state meet is this coming Saturday in Pasco.

We Ran Fast At The Twilight Invite

Our boys varsity took first place and our girls took fourth at the Twilight Invitational yesterday. This was our best race of the season so far. Of the 28 team members who competed, 24 of them ran their lifetime PR, and two of them ran their season PR. Christine and Ashley each improved by more than a minute on the girls team, while Dupree, Will, Ramsey, Yaphet, Stepen, Matt, Jayden, Joey, and Dominic all improved boy more than a minute for the boys.

Thuong moved up to 14th on the Lindbergh All-Time list. Cindy and Christine are 22nd and 23rd on the list.

Great job everyone. We have a few more weeks to keep improving.

Fun and Fast Racing at Mt. Baker Invite

We had a great weekend in Bellingham and Silver Lake! We had fun team bonding and created some good memories. Everyone ran very well–our best team effort of the season so far. The girls varsity once again had the race of the day. They finished 4th with Thuong ending up 12th and Cindy 20th. The boys finished 5th (with Omeylan it would have been 4th). Mohamud took 6th place.

Some notable performances: Joey improved over 2:00 from a year ago, while Ismael, Titus, Evan, and David each improved around 1:30. Stassney knocked off almost 2:30, while Thuong took off over a minute and Cindy just under a minute.

Great job everyone.

Strong Showing at Fort Steilacoom

The majority of our team members ran either a life-time PR or their very first 5K race ever last Saturday at Fort Steilacoom Invite. We had great weather, a competitive race, and a fun day. Mohamud Abdi moved up to #4 on our All-Time List, and Thuong Nguyen moved up to #18 on the girls All-Time List. The girl’s team finished third in the Small Schools division (2A and smaller), while the boys finished second place.

We have a lot of work to do to get to where we want to be as a team, but we off to a great start.

Pictures will be posted soon.

Success at the 2012 Seamount League Class Meet!

The first race of the season is now in the books! For some team members, this was their first cross country season of their lives. For the seniors this was the last Class Meet they will ever run. Overall we had lots of positives to celebrate. Six girls finished in the top ten of their races. Nine boys finished in the top ten in their races. Mohumud had the fastest time of the day on the boy’s side, and Ariel had the second fastest time of the day in the girl’s races.

Everyone made huge improvements in their times over last year. Giselle had the most improvement, dropping her time 4:18 over the 2 mile course! Ashley P improved 2:35, Cindy improved 1:34, and Titus improved 1:03. Most others improved closer to :45.

If the meet would have been scored, Lindbergh would have easily won both the boys and the girls races. We have lots of work to do, however, to continue to improve.

On To State!

Both the boys and the girls teams qualified for the state meet this weekend. The girls finished in 4th place (the top 5 go to state), and were only 17 points out of first place. The boys finished in first place to become the West Central District Champions for the second year in a row. The boys ran without Mohamud, who was resting a sore back. Colton ran a great race as the alternate.

This is the third year in a row that both the boys and the girls teams qualified for state.

The Season Gets Started with a Successful Class Meet

We had a great meet today in the heat at the 2011 Seamount League class meet. We had several race winners (Omelyan, Luke, Mohamud, Sarah) and lots of top-10 finishers. Additionally, almost everyone made huge improvements over last year’s times. And we had new team members compete very well.

Pictures from the meet will be posted in the Photo Gallery soon.
