The Frosh/Soph Girls were represented by Larissa Yee and Michelle Wee, who finished 18th and 40th. Both girls ran PR’s for the course. The Frosh/Soph Boys race took three tries before they had a clean start. The Lions took 5th place, led by Jackson Wedel who ran an impressive race. He took 3rd place overall and is now 9th on McClatchy’s All-Time list for the course. After being trampled during the first start, Fletcher Lux brushed off his wounds and finished 2nd for Lions. Andrew Yee, Kai Sorensen and Joe Bogdan rounded out the top 5. The Varsity Girls were down one with an injury, but still came through with a 2nd place finish, to qualify for the State Championships. Anna McNatt led the Lions with a 4th place finish, followed by Molly Dreher in 5th. They are now #4 and #5 on McClatchy’s All-Time list for the course. Julia Heckey took 3rd for the Lions. Camille Combrink and Olivia Johnson both ran gutsy races to help the team secure the 2nd place spot. The Varsity Boys took 3rd place; good enough for medals, but unfortunately, not a trip to Fresno. Joe Wiley led the pack with a 5th place finish, qualifying as an individual for the second time. Parker Van Ostrand, Damon Lin were 2-3 for McClatchy, just 0.1s apart. Nelson McMahon and Ben Yeargain completed the top 5. Most improved for the meet goes to Jackson Wedel and Anna McNatt. Go Lions!
