Advancing through an associate meet Nov. 15 and regional competition Nov. 22 at Seattle’s Woodland Park were Sterling Frye and Ashley Llapitan from White River High School; Veronica Stinnett from Bonney Lake High; and Ashley Sincraugh from Sumner High. The regional meet brought together runners from Washington, Oregon and Idaho and the top 20 finishers in each division moved on.
