West Central District Meet Info

Seamount League Triple Crown

Today Lindbergh completed the Cross Country Triple Crown, becoming league champions with all three teams:  Girls, Varsity Boys, and JV Boys.  This is the first season we have won all three titles in the same year!  In addition to the team titles, Sarah Rieter became the Seamount League individual champion, winning by 45 seconds.  Also, if our JV boys were allowed to compete in the varsity race, they would have finished 4th place.  This means that they would have qualified for the West Central District meet as a varsity team.  Additionally, our top 3 JV runners (CJ Timm, Alex Nelsen, and Brett Love) all would have qualified individually to compete in the district varsity race.  (James Cornell is getting over a calf injury, so he ran a tempo run in the JV race as a workout–he will be running  varsity at Districts, however).

All-City Champs: JV, Girls, Varsity boys

Today was the best All-City meet Lindbergh has ever had.  Never before have we won all three races like we did today.  The JV boys beat Hazen18 to 42 and Renton 15 to 50.  The girls beat Hazen 27 to 30 and Renton 26 to 30.  The varsity boys beat Hazen 17 to 42 and Renton 15 to 50.  Our JV and Varsity boys both have a 8 – 0 record for the season.  The girls are 7 – 1.  All three teams can be league champs by winning the league meet next Saturday. 

The girls team was particularly impressive today.  We set goals for our top 5 regarding what places they needed to get in the meet for us to have a chance of winning.  Sarah was supposed to win, and she did.  Anna was supposed to beat Renton's #1 and Hazen's #2.  She did.  Jasmine was supposed to beat both team's #3.  She beat their #2s.  Nicolle was supposed to beat both team's #5.  She beat Hazen's #4 and Renton's #5.  Erika was supposed to beat both team's #5s.  She beat their #6s.  Our girls ran the second half of the race harder than the girls from the other teams.  We were simply the toughest team today.  Great job girls!

All-City Meet at Seward Park

This Thursday in the All-City meet at Seward Park.  The race times are 3:30 for JV boys, 4:00 for the girls, and 4:30 for the varsity boys.  The start and finish to the race are at the highest point of the park.  Take the windy drive all the way up to the top of the park.  We start near the amphitheater.  See you there. 


Having Fun at the Home Meet

Today we had our only home meet of the season.  In spite of the poor weather, we still drew a large crowd of students, teachers, parents, and former team members.  Lindbergh completely dominated every race against Highline, Kennedy, and Evergreen.  Our boys JV placed 12 runners ahead of the non-Lindbergh runner.  Needless to say, we scored the lowest score possible against all of the teams.  The girls nearly swept the other schools, winning by forfeit over Evergreen, beating Kennedy 17 to 40, and beating Highline 19 to 37.  The varsity boys put all seven runners ahead of the next team's #1 runner.

More Success At Mt. Baker

Today the boys JV and Varsity both took first place at the Mt. Baker invitational.  The JV boys easily won–the second place team had about twice as many points.  The varsity squeaked out a win, with a margin of only one point over Burlington-Edison.  The girls team ran very well, with all 14 of our girls running in the race for the first time of the season.  They finished in about the middle of the pack, but they beat our Seamount rival Mt. Rainier.  Trevor Thompson won the boys individual title, while Sarah Reiter finished a close second in the girls race.  The conditions were very wet and muddy, which made a crazy, slippery, and slow course.
