Cascade’s Mady Harris make her way around the course at the CTL Championships last week in Chelan. The Kodiak boys finished fifth, while the girls were sixth.
The Cascade Cross Country team competed in the Caribou Trail League Championships on Oct. 19 in Chelan. Out of six teams, the Kodiaks boys finished in fifth place, while the girls were sixth. The Cashmere boys and girls won both events.
Freshman Daniel Olmstead paced the Kodiaks over the 2.9 mile course, placing 13th overall with a time of 16:49. Another frosh, Daniel Tveten came in 18th with a time of 17.07. Both earned all league honors for finishing in the top 21.
Freshman Neil Flodin was 22nd with a time of 17:40. Sophomore Blakely Browne was 27th and senior Michael Olmstead was 32nd.
"They all ran good, fast races, but it is a tough league and we're pretty young," said Dayle Massey, Cascade head coach. "In a couple years, we'll be very competitive."
Junior Jennifer Novikoff led the Cascade girls, placing 15th with a time of 21:10, earning her all league honors. Rounding out the top five was Mady Harris, Lizzy Noland, Ashley Ells and Madeline Krous. "What has been so fun to see this season is the remarkable improvement of some many of our runners," he said. "Sam McMahon and Max Miller are great examples of really hard working kids that continue to post faster and faster times as the season progresses."
Next up is the District meet at Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee this Friday. The six CTL teams compete with seven teams from District seven for three team spots and 15 individual spots at the State Tournament in Pasco on Nov. 3.
"At this point, it looks like Daniel Olmstead, Daniel Tveten and Jennifer Novikoff, if they can put together amazing races, have shots at making it," he said.
