The Hornets ran fifth as a team scoring 130 punching a ticket to the state meet Nov. 8 at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.

Samantha Engebretsen took the silver with a score of 19:30.10 shaving a minute off the time she posted last year at the district meet.

The junior said the hills were “pretty difficult” along with running the course twice, which she said was a mental challenge.

Engebretsen said this was the most difficult race of the season because the “competition was so high.”

She said she may have started to fast but was strong at the end and she was “excited” with the results of her race.

Hunter Storm ran 14th in 20:32.97.
