Student athletes from Mountlake Terrace, Edmonds-Woodway, Meadowdale and Lynnwood High Schools took over the trails of Ballinger Park on Wednesday for the running of the Edmonds School District Cross Country Championships.
The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors captured both the boys’ and girls’ team titles; the Mountlake Terrace Hawks placed second in the boys’ competition while the Lynnwood Royals were the runner-ups on the girls’ side.
Lynnwood senior Micah Murphy edged out the Warriors’ Jacob Willcox by less than half-a-second to win the boys’ varsity race; the Hawks’ Alex Williams placed third.
E-W’s Ellie Gard and Jemma Willcox finished first and second respectively in the girls’ varsity race; the Royals’ Christina Savenkova came home in third place.
The event marked the end of the regular season for the four teams; the Hawks, Warriors, Mavs and Royals will next race at the Wesco League / North Sound Conference Championships set for Saturday, Oct. 26, at Lakewood High School in Marysville.
