Prep cross country: Hawks compete at WIAA State Championships

The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors led a contingent of runners from all four Edmonds School District (ESD) high schools at the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) State Cross Country Championships on Saturday.

With three runners finishing in the top five, the Warriors girls squad placed second in state for 3A classification teams. E-W’s Yukino Parle finished second among all runners in the 3A girls race; teammates Olivia Meader-Yetter and Stephanie Wroblewski ran to fourth and fifth place finishes respectively.

On the boys side, the Warriors earned fourth place in the 3A team competition; Deyago Peraza led the squad with a 21st place finish.

This is the third straight year the Edmonds-Woodway girls have brought home the 3A state runner-up trophy and the second straight year the Warrior boys have finished fourth at state.

Full squads from E-W and individual competitors from Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood and Meadowdale were among the hundreds of runners that qualified for the state championship meet. The races were held on a 5,000 meter course through Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.
