The Lady Hornets qualified with a fifth-place showing at Saturday’s district meet at American Lake Golf Course in Lakewood. The top six teams earned a state trip.

The EHS boys didn’t qualify as a team, but two runners – Cory Johnson and Alec Rhome – advanced with individual efforts.

The EHS athletes will join runners from all corners of the state for Saturday’s state competition, which will be staged at its traditional venue, Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.

The EHS girls were wed by Chandler Weiman, who completed the 3.1-mile district course in 19 minutes, 43 seconds to place 13th overall in the field.
