Cross country teams finish 5th and 6th

The Bulldogs boys and girls cross country teams were scheduled to compete in Wenatchee last Saturday. But that was canceled due to smoke. The team traveled to Shoreline instead.

In the two weeks before the meet, the team was only able to practice two days outside due to the particulate levels in the air.

The Kings High School home course is three miles of trails, grass and track without any concrete and plenty of hills. It's a two loop course around King's campus.

The girls team came in sixth place in front of Everett with 123 points. Cashmere Head Coach, John Durheim said Sydney Green had a great race coming in 23rd with a time of 22:05.

Molly Kenoyer finished the race in 25:23 finishing her first race of the 2012 season.

"Molly Kenoyer competed for the first time this year and ran hard on an extremely difficult course," Durheim said.

Cashmere's dominant runner, Angel Knishka, came in seventh place finishing the race in 20:06. Teammate Kea Paton was following close behind running a strong race. However, Paton was unable to finish the race after she twisted her ankle and had to drop out.

The boys team finished the race in 5th place with 124 points, behind Port Angeles and in front of Everett.

"For only practicing twice outdoors in the past two weeks, I was pleased," Durheim said.

Junior Drew Van Polen was the first Cashmere boy to finish the race coming in at 8th place in 17:09.

Durheim said teammate Jonathon Mangas had a great race finishing less than a minute after Van Polen. Mangas finished in 21st place with a time of 17:52. Junior Oliver Fernandez finished four seconds later in 26th place.

Senior Dawson Taylor finished in 18:08 and junior Ricardo Naranjo finished in 18:41.

This was not the first meet that was changed last minute due to poor air quality. Durheim said Athletic Director Scott Brown has done an excellent job in finding the team places to run indoors and finding meets not originally on the schedule.

The Town Toyota Center allowed the Bulldogs to run inside their facility last week which was a great help to the team.

"Realistically, I know that we are only maintaining our conditioning while teams that we will compete against in a month are getting better," Durheim said. "Once we can get back outside and put in the mileage the team needs I'm hoping we will be more competitive."

Both teams are scheduled to run at the Sunfair Invite meet this Saturday.
