White River High runners will enjoy a home-course advantage today, Wednesday, when they host Bonney Lake and Lakes High in South Puget Sound League 3A competition.

Saturday, the Hornet group will head across the Cascades to participate in the Sunfair Invitational in Yakima, hosted by Eisenhower High.

White River’s last league action came Sept. 23 and included a trip to the new Cascadia course being used by both Sumner and Bonney Lake high schools. The Hornet boys were two-time winners, defeating Sumner 17-38 and beating Capital 23-32. It was a tougher afternoon for the White River girls, who lost to Sumner 23-33 and fell to Capital 24-35.

The Hornet boys were led by Marcus Dickson, who placed first overall. Completing the Hornet sweep were Kody Gould in second place and Sterling Frye in third.

The White River girls were headed by Lauryn Wate’s second-place performance.

White River followed its league meet with a Saturday trip to the Bellevue Invitational, where runners were grouped according to their ranking within the team; all the teams’ No. 1 and No. 2 runners competed as a group, as did all the No. 3 and No. 4s and so on.

The top finishers for White River were Frye, who placed 10 in the 3-4 race with a time of 16 minutes, 59 seconds. Dickson had a faster time, 16:27, and placed 13th in the 1-2 race. The top showing for the White River girls came from Wate, who finished 31 in the 1-2 race with a time of 20:30.
