The Enumclaw boys easily cruised past Yelm 17-45 and defeated Bonney Lake 25-30; it was a different story against the highly-regarded Seahawks, who raced past the Hornets 18-41.

The EHS girls were led by Carissa Gwerder, who placed fourth overall with a time of 18 minutes, 58 seconds. Also finishing in the top 10 for Enumclaw were Chandler Weiman, seventh place with a time of 19:27, and Julia Harris, ninth place, 19:32.

Others running the varsity race for EHS were Sierra Myers, 12th place, 19:48; Emily Eilertson, 13th, 19:59; Nerissa Huff, 14th, 20:02; and Nadine Huff, 15th, 20:30.
