The Enumclaw High cross country squad made its annual trip to the Oregon Coast Saturday and made quite a splash at the Three-Course Challenge.
The big meet at Camp Rilea, near Seaside, features three paths, designated easy, moderate and hard. There are differences in distance and topography, but all include a “mud hole” element.
The EHS girls placed fifth and the boys were seventh. For the boys, Cory Johnson was third overall in the medium race and Alec Rhome was 10th in the easy version. For the girls, Hannah Calvert was sixth and Chandler Weiman was seventh in the easy race, while Peyton Vick placed eighth in the moderate run.
EHS had little trouble Sept. 21 when they hosted Bonney Lake at Enumclaw Golf Course.
The dominance was nearly identical, as the EHS girls won 18-43 shortly before the Hornet boys picked up an 18-45 victory.
The five girls figuring in the EHS scoring finished in the top six, interrupted only by Bonney Lake’s Sierra Espinal. Calvert was the first runner across the line, finishing in 20 minutes, 34 seconds. Weiman was nine seconds behind to claim second place. Then came Taryn Schreiner in fourth, Vick in fifth and Lindsay Ross in sixth.
The order of finish was the same for the EHS boys. Johnson was the overall champion with a time of 17:53 and he was followed by Rhome in second, Kevin Nelson in fourth, Peter Berger in fifth and Josh Sanders in sixth.
Hornet runners will be in action again today, Wednesday, when they host Lakes.
