Cross country: SHS boys top PT, Olympic

Port Townsend sophomore Nathan Cantrell edged Sequim’s Murray Bingham for the top individual time, but Bingham’s Sequim Wolves proved to be too deep for the 1A squad.

Sequim placed five runners in the top 10 as they swept a dual meet at the Port Townsend Golf Club on Sept. 27.

The Wolves scored 30 team points, with Port Townsend second (35) and Olympic third (61).

Cantrell paced the young Redhawks with a 10:31 finish on the two-mile course, with Bingham just six-tenths of a second back.

Liam Byrne was fifth (11:02), followed by Eli Gish (11:07) and Jazen Bartee (11:14). Riley Martin was 10th, finishing in 11:32.

Fischer Jensen took 14th for the Wolves in 12:01, while teammate Erik Christiansen was 15th (12:02).

Led by individual winner Ally Bradley (13:31), the host Redhawks won the girls’ race with 26 points, with Olympic second (42 points) and Sequim third (58).

Kaitlyn Viada was Sequim’s top girls finisher, placing seventh in 15:42. Sequim’s Vita Olson was ninth (15:36) and Jessica German was 10th (15:44). Telicia Busby (21st, 19:08) and Maria Busby (22nd, 19:29) rounded out Sequim’s scorers.

Racing at Curtis

The Wolves also took part in the 22nd-annual Curtis XC Invitational in University Place.

Alec Shingleton paced the Sequim boys with a 75th-place finish of the 5,000-meter boys varsity 1-4 course, finishing in 18:01. Byrne was 93rd (18:23) and Bartee was 125th (18:52) in the 169-runner race. In the boys varsity 5-8 race, Brenden Jack was Sequim’s top finisher, placing 115th (19:47) out of 165 runners.

On the girls’ side, Viada once again was Sequim’s top runner, taking 142nd in the varsity girls’ 1-4 race with a 24:59 finish. German clocked in at 25:44, good for 148th.

Andrew Cambalik paced Sequim’s junior varsity boys with a 20:28 mark, good for 116th among 236 runners in the JV competition.
