White River High runners had an easy time of things Thursday afternoon, sweeping past Washington and Clover Park in South Puget Sound League 2A cross country competition.
Running at Sprinker Recreation Center, the Hornet boys took the top five spots to record a perfect 15-50 score during their win over Clover Park. That dominance was almost matched against Washington, with the team winning 17-40.
The White River girls also swamped Clover Park 15-50 and easily whipped Washington 23-36.
In the boys race, the first four finishers wore the Hornet colors. Marcus Dickson crossed the line in 16 minutes, 28 seconds to top the field and Kody Gould was second in 16:42. White River’s Kyle Smith was third, finishing in 17:25, and Chris Fisher was fourth, 17:27. Rounding out the Hornet scoring was Wes Fueston, seventh overall at 18:20.
The Hornets’ Lauryn Wate won the girls race with a clocking of 19:45, clipping one second off the Sprinker course record in the process.
Also contributing to the girls scoring were Kelly Coyle, second overall with a time of 21:37; Christina Ramous, sixth, 23:20; Eryn Maris, eighth, 24:01; and Katie Simmons, ninth, 24:12.
Thursday will bring a cross country showdown with the talented crew from Sumner. The girls varsity race begins at 4:30 and the boys will go at 5 p.m., all running the course on the White River High campus.
