Port Angeles girls win
POULSBO — Personal-record performances were the norm for Roughrider runners in a three-team meet against North Kitsap and Olympic at North Kitsap High School on Wednesday.
“A very fast, flat course with lots of turns, just under 3-miles long, at the North Kitsap High School campus helped the runners of Port Angeles put up some fast times,” Riders coach Rodger Johnson said.
Port Angeles’ Gracie Long continued her winning streak, claiming her sixth race of the season with a new best time of 17:47.3.
Lauren Larson continued to improve with a new record of 18:24.5 to finish third.
“Freshman Lauren Larson was excited to close more time on senior Gracie Long, who had a great race today,” Johnson said.
The Riders posted four of the top five times and six of the top 10 to win the girls meet with 20 points. North Kitsap totaled 37 points and Olympic tallied 83 points.
Gabriel Long led the boys with a fifth-place finish in a personal record 16:27.5.
Cameron Butler was just behind with a new personal best of 16:27.8 and Thomas Shaw also outpaced his previous best with an eighth-place finish in 16:43.5.
“It was a fun race,” Butler said. “I feel like I’m getting faster and am starting to get excited for the league meet.”
Before that race, set for Thursday, Oct. 19 at Cedars at Dungeness golf course in Sequim, the Riders will run at the 34th Hole in the Wall Invitational at Lakewood High School on Saturday.
