Chelan girls win District XC Title
Both boys and girls teams to represent CTL at State
by Richard Uhlhorn
The Chelan harriers continue to excell in the world of cross-country running. Coaches Mark Anderson and Jack Rutter have built a program that over the years has made Chelan one of the top teams in the state in its classification year after year.
2009 has been no exception. The girls once again took the District Championship with strong performances by each and every girl running in varsity race. While Cashmere's Kea Paton continues to dominate the league with an individual effort, Chelan's premiere senior runner Gabby Guillen, junior Lyndsey Fox, junior Mari Schramm, senior Merya Carrian, freshman Marisa Palazzo and junior Cody Knaub are so good at running at the front of the pack that other teams are hard pressed to beat them.
As a team, Chelan's girls will go as the number one team out of the CTL followed by Cashmere and Omak.
The 2009 District VI Champions.
The boys team took second place at the District outing in Wenatchee earning a team placement to the State Tournament next weekend. They lost to Cashmere by only three points which shows just how close these two teams are to each other in the competitive sport.
Chelan boys XC team took second place at the District VI meet in Wenatchee to earn a spot as a team at the upcoming State XC meet on November 7.
Sophomore Raven Berman came in 5th followed by Cyrus and Niles Desmarais in 6th and 7th respectively. Freshman Aaron Schramm came in 13th and Jorge Maldanodo was 15th. Rounding out theChelan boys was Josh Burbery who runs to stay in shape for basketball and Ian Wyatt.
