The men’s and women’s cross country teams put on an impressive display of athleticism Saturday, Nov. 14 during the Northwest Athletic Conference Championship meet at Lewisville Park in Battle Ground, Wash.
Clouds covered the county’s oldest regional park, which was established in the ’30s. As the rain poured, mud accumulated at the bottom of a hill near the finish line, and it only got worse with each lap. Head coach Mike Blackmore had prepared his runners for days like this one.
“We really took advantage of that part of the course, we picked up three or four places every time we went through there,” Blackmore said.
