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.

On To State!

Both the Lindbergh boys and the girls teams qualified for the state meet today at the West Central District meet.  Half of the schools in the entire state are in our district.  The girls ran their best race of the season and finished in 5th, and the boys ran one of their best races of the year to finish second.

This is the first time the girls have qualified as a team for the state meet since 1996 and the first time both teams have gone to state in the same season since 1992.  The girls beat two teams that were ranked in the top ten in the state:  Capital was ranked 7th and Enumclaw was ranked 10th.  The boys were beaten by the 4th ranked Peninsula, and they beat 5th ranked North Kitsap and 9th ranked Columbia River.

Some of our girls moved up on the all-time list:  Anna Patti is now the 5th fastest ever, Ariel Hodges moved up to #29 on the list, Liz Hansen is 36th, and Brenna Fisher is 38th all-time.

Girls Team:  1. North Kitsap  93, 2. Columbia River 94, 3. Peninsula 115, 4. Prairie 139, 5. Lindbergh 149, 6. Capital 158, 7. Enumclaw 164, 8. Camas 179

League and District Meet Schedules

Several people have asked about the race schedule for the league and district meets.  I will post more information about them later.  However, here are the times of the races.  Remember that everyone runs in the League meet, but only the top seven boys and girls run at districts.



Going To State!

Olga Sievers ran an outstanding race, finishing 14th in the 3A girls race, which qualifies her to run in the state meet next week. This time also moves Olga up to the #15 spot on the All-Time fastest list. Bailey, Madeline, and Patti all ran great races as well.

The Boys team also qualified for the state meet. They finished 3rd in the race with 88 points, behind Peninsula (54 pts) and Franklin Pierce (76 pts). Chris Miland finished an impressive second place over-all, and we placed three runners under 17:00. Chris moved up to the 9th spot on the All-Time list for the boys. Matt Miland was the top freshman in the district. Ranvir has been stuggling with tendonitis in his knee, but gutted out a tough race inspite of the pain.

Here are the individual results.
