Both the boys and girls cross country squads from Enumclaw High are advancing to postseason competition.
Competing Saturday against a subdistrict field, the Hornets girls took second-place honors and the boys were fifth. The placings qualified both teams for this week’s Westside Classic, which serves as the district meet and will be staged at Lakewood’s American Lake.
The EHS girls were paced by Chandler Weiman, who completed the 5,000-meter course in 20 minutes to place eighth overall in the Class 3A race. Hannah Calvert was 10 with a time of 20:33. Others running for the Hornets were Taryn Schreiner, 11th, 20:37; Peyton Vick, 13th, 20:44; Lindsay Ross, 18th, 21:13; Riley DaSmul, 23rd, 21:30; and Abby Callison, 24th, 21:30.
The boys finish was headed by Cory Johnson, who finished in 16:28 to place third in the 3A race, and Alec Rhome, who placed eighth with a time of 16:43. Rounding out the EHS effort were Josh Sanders, 30th, 17:47; Peter Berger, 31st, 17:51; Dylan Hamel, 32nd, 17:53; Kevin Nelson, 43rd, 18:36; and Caleb Gwerder, 50th, 19:01.
