White River girls run to 12th at state cross country meet
The White River High girls claimed 12th-place honors Saturday, lining up against the state’s best during the Class 2A state cross country championships.
The 5-kilometer race was at the traditional site, Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco, and brought together the most talented prep runners – individuals and teams – from all corners of the state.
The White River girls had qualified as a team by placing second the week before at the West Central District meet.
In Pasco, the Hornets were led by junior Maddie Moser, who placed 60th in the field of 141 with a clocking of 20 minutes, 35.04 seconds. Rounding out the team were senor Brenna Liebel, 73rd, 20:47.37; sophomore Courtney Gelmini, 86th, 21:01.67; Camryn Berryhill, 94th, 21:09.15; senior Jenna Guenthner, 108th, 21:40.17; senior Kacy Coyle, 118th, 21:57.96; and freshman Hannah Swettenam, 119th, 22:00.85.
