The Cascade Kodiak boys cross country team had solid showing at the South Whidbey meet last Saturday, finishing 10th out of 14 schools in the second division.

"That put us right in the middle of the 1A schools. We beat three and three beat us," said Dayle Massey, Cascade Head Coach. Not bad for this year, but very encouraging for our future, since our top seven runners are all freshman and sophomores."

Freshman Daniel Olmstead, in his first race of the season, was the top finisher for the Kodiaks, traversing the hilly 3.1 mile course in 19:27. Another frosh, Daniel Tveten, came in second for Cascade at 19:43, followed by sophomore Blakely Browne at 19:56. The top seven included Neil Flodin, Devon Graham, Jonathan Blake and Nathan Wells.

For the girls, sophomore Jennifer Novikoff had a very strong race, finishing in 19:43. Right behind were Mady Harris and Lizzy Noland.

"Overall, seven girls finished the race. That is the best showing we've had for a number of years," he said. "It was especially exciting seeing how much some of our runners have improved. Sophomores Max Miller and Isaac Roberts both ran very fast races, beating their times from last year by over four minutes."

This Saturday, smoke permitting, Cascade is at the Wenatchee XC Invite at Walla Wall State Park.
