Sumner High’s cross country squad was an accommodating host when Lakes and Enumclaw visited the team’s 3.1-mile Cascadia course.

Enumclaw won in the boys and girls competition 25-32 and 25-45, respectively, and Lakes was victorious on the boys side, winning 23-35.

Despite being down two of its best runners – senior Jackie Tomlin and junior Leah Engelhardt – the Sumner girls beat Lakes 26-30.

Sumner senior Ashlee Sincraugh, who has made up some serious ground from the beginning of the 2009 season when she was ill and injured, figured prominently in the day’s one cheery note. She spearheaded the triumphant effort over Lakes, hitting the finish line first with a time of 21 minutes, 34 seconds to beat Enumclaw’s Carrissa Gwerder by one second.

The rest of Sumner’s girls didn’t finish far behind as Stefani Castile, Gabby Phelps and Jasmine Babcock all ran well and Sumner’s number four runner, Kendra Jansson, knocked four minutes off of a time she had run on the Cascadia course two weeks ago.

For the Sumner boys, junior Jobe Layton recorded the best time, finishing third overall with a time of 17:50. Reid Selmer crossed the finish line with a time of 18:13, which eclipsed his previous personal best by two minutes. Senior Anthony Bertolucci contributed a 18:58 time and freshman Josh Goodsell wasn’t far behind at 19:06.

At 4:30 p.m. today, Wednesday, on the Cascadia course, Sumner will host Bonney Lake and Franklin Pierce.
