Milwaukie’s runners competed in their first 5K race of the season at Blue Lake Park. This was a preview meet and all the teams in our league participated. We’ll all be back there at the end of October for the District Meet.
While missing a couple of runners due to injury, the Varsity boys ran well. Leading the team was freshman Logan Law (3rd, 16:29). Logan ran with the lead pack of 5 runners for over two miles before they started to spread out; he finished just 4 seconds behind the 2nd place runner. Rounding out the Varsity were Caleb Young (20:36), Alan McGinnis (20:55), Trenton Rekdahl (22:28), and Dylan Geske (23:35). The team placed 7th, but these runners have a lot of room to grow and we’ll be looking a lot tougher at the district race.
The JV boys all ran great races; for many it was their first 5K. With some races under their belts, they’ll be fighting for Varsity spots. Those running were Josiah Davis (23:37), Isaac Hiveley (24:45), Seiji Kosinski (28:00), and Ash Arnesen-Lewman (32:42).
The girls team sustained some injuries, but they’ll be back strong next week.
Our next meet is Saturday, 9/14 @ Oregon City High School. Our first race is at 11am.
