State cross country race by race w/ results

Boys class 4A

This is getting to be an annual occurrence in the Ferris-Mead rivalry -- the Panthers win the regional title and the Saxons get their revenge at state.

The scenario played out for the third straight season as Ferris avenged a one-point loss last week in Yakima, blowing away Mead to win the school\'s sixth state title and reassert the Saxons\' claim as the No. 1 team in the nation -- an honor they held until Mead wrested it away.

\"We definitely wanted to come back this week and prove we\'re No. 1,\" said race winner Cameron Quackenbush. \"That was our main focus.\"

Quackenbush also felt he had something to prove after finishing sixth at regionals. The senior took over the race right before the 2-mile mark and held off Joey Bywater, the Lake Stevens junior who won last spring\'s 3,200-meter state title, by four seconds in 15:44.

\"I didn\'t like how I finished at regionals,\" he said. \"I wanted to come in here and redeem myself and show what I\'m capable of.\"

Richland senior Tyler Noland was the last of eight eastside runners to make the podium, passing five runners in the final mile to finish 12th in 16:06.

\"I wanted to try and save a little bit for the end,\" said Noland, who last week at regionals went out hard early and faded in the final mile.

Noland had an ambitious regimen for this season, increasing his mileage under the tutelage of coach Bruce Blizard and even traveling to Stanford, Calif., for a prestigious invitational, dragging his parents, Pat and Debbie, in tow.

\"They really supported me this year,\" he said.

Walla Walla senior Bowe Ebding finished 22nd in 16:28.

Class 3A

Seattle Prep senior Max O\'Donoghue-McDonald cruised to his second consecutive title, winning by 31 seconds over Skyline senior Max Frerker in the day\'s fastest time (15:32), and declared this year\'s win sweeter than the first.

\"Last year, I wasn\'t as confident, and my season wasn\'t as good,\" he said. \"This year, I felt so good coming in. I had so much confidence that I could go our hard and then maintain, and I did that.\"

O\'Donoghue-McDonald cut 22 seconds off his winning time of a year ago despite running almost the entire race by himself.

He led a three-person lead pack with Frerker and Nathan Hale\'s Abdi Hassan for the first mile, but shed both rivals in the second mile, building an 11 1/2-second lead by the 2-mile mark.

\"Running by yourself is a lot harder than running with a pack,\" he said. \"Considering I had to do all the work, I\'m real happy with my time.\"

O\'Donoghue-McDonald\'s dominance wasn\'t enough to lift his team to the title, though. North Central\'s pack -- three runners made the podium, led by Andy Kimpel in fifth, and a 49-second spread from Kimpel to No. 5 runner Jeff Howard -- was enough for a 14-point win over Prep.

Southridge sophomore Andrew Gonzales finished 30th and Kamiakin senior Brad Young was 57th.

Class 2A

Everything went according to plan for Jake Riley.

He got off to a fast start, took the lead early and never relinquished it over the 5K course.

The Sehome senior posted the largest margin of victory in any race of the day cruising to a time of 15:51 for his first state title.

Bellingham\'s Chris Kwiatkowski was second, 36 seconds behind at 16:27.

Afterward, Riley wasn\'t surprised about the victory, because that is how he planned the race.

\"I knew it was a reachable goal,\" he said after finishing third last year in the 3A race.

Burlington-Edison won its first team title with 55 points -- placing three runners in the top 10. Sehome was second with 73 points and West Valley of Spokane was third with 86 points.

In one of the more wide-open races of the day, Riley was in a pack with Kwiatkowski and two other runs at the mile mark. That is when he started to make his move. By the 2-mile mark, Riley took over, stretching his lead to eight seconds.

He then motored up the hill toward the finish line as Kwiatkowski fell back, and was note in site as Riley crossed the finish line.

\"It\'s kind of a blur,\" he said. \"It went by really fast.\"

Class 1A

Royal\'s Rigoberto Jimenez laid the gauntlet down early in the race -- anyone who wanted the title would have to follow the junior\'s breakneck pace.

Rigoberto broke away right after the mile marker, and only his twin brother, Humberto, dared try to stay with him.

The duo was 20 seconds ahead of the third-place runner by the 2-mile mark. Rigoberto won the race in 16:17, 11 seconds ahead of Humberto.

\"That was the strategy,\" said Royal coach Ben Orth. \"I just told them to keep everyone in range the first mile, then take the lead and just maintain the pace.\"

Humberto didn\'t run at state last year because of a broken foot, and he didn\'t run his first race this year until midway through the season because of work conflicts.

\"To come out halfway through the season and take second place feels good,\" he said.

Lakeside (Nine Mile Falls) ran away with the team title with 45 points, putting four runners on the podium. But no team could match Connell\'s 43-second spread between its No. 1-5 runners, allowing the Eagles to grab the fourth-place trophy despite not having a runner finish higher than 26th place (Daniel Reyna in 18:01).

\"That\'s the key to our success,\" said Eagles coach Dan Colby. \"We don\'t have any superstars, but we have the ability with our top five to run as a pack.\"

Royal just missed out on a trophy, placing fifth. Kiona-Benton was 15th, led by Cameron Robertson in 25th place (17:58).

Class 2B/1B

Could Brad Serdar deal with adversity? The answer was an overwhelming yes.

A week after finishing second at the Northeast district meet, the Reardan senior was not about to let it happen again.

\"That made me on fire right there,\" he said.

And a fired up Serdar, is a deadly Serdar.

Serdar, the defending state champion, pulled away at the 21/2-mile mark and won his second straight state title at 17:01. Klickitat\'s Herschel Sanchey was second at 17:04. And that guy that beat Serdar last week, Brian Angove -- he finished fourth at 17:15.

\"This one was for the team,\" Serdar said. \"What\'s the best way to help the team? Get one point.\"

But his one point was not enough for Reardan to defend its state championship.

St. George\'s, which finished second last season, placed five in the top 12 and won the title with 36 points. Reardan was second with 54 points.

Serdar got off to a slow start -- by design -- and slowly pushed his way to the front. He joined the lead back with 2 miles left the in race before making his big push on the final hill.

\"I wanted to hang back and confuse them a little bit,\" he said.

Girls 4A

Kenna Patrick\'s expression spoke volumes.

The Thomas Jefferson senior exited the finish chute with a bug-eyed look that screamed, \"What have I just done?\"

What she\'d done was pull away from a four-runner pack in the final half-mile to win in 18:13, the best time of the day for any female runner.

\"This is so amazing,\" she said. \"I knew I could do it, but it\'s still hard to let yourself believe you will.\"

The lead pack of Patrick, Shadle Park freshman Andrea Nelson and Bellarmine Prep juniors Nicole Cochran and Kayla Evans formed around the half-mile mark. It didn\'t break apart until they crested the final hill, when Patrick surged ahead of Cochran and held off a furious kick by Nelson.

Gig Harbor repeated as team champion with 81 points, led by senior Kesslee Payne\'s fifth-place finish. Richland improved three spots in the team standings, finishing ninth with 236 points.

\"Our goal was to place better than we did last year and work together to make it through the race,\" said junior Danielle Amparan, the Bombers\' top finisher in 49th (20:19).

Class 3A

It wasn\'t the dominating performance of a week ago, when Squalicum swept the top five places at the Northwest District meet.

But with Bronwyn Crossman leading the way with a 2-second victory over Lisa Olander of West Valley (Yakima), the Storm regained the team crown they lost by one point to the Rams in \'05.

Crossman\'s victory was never secure. She, Olander and Sumner\'s Katrina Drennan -- the 2003 2A champion as a freshman at Orting -- took turns trading the lead for the first half of the race as they broke away from the rest of the field.

Crossman made her move just past the 1 1/2-mile mark, hoping to put as much distance as possible between her and Olander, the state 800 and 1,600 champion who\'s known for her furious kick. Crossman led by 10 seconds with about a quarter-mile to go and just held off the onrushing Olander.

\"I knew the whole race would be close,\" Crossman said. \"Any one of the three of us could have won. I wanted to make my move around the 2-mile mark, but Katrina surged at the mile, and that made me want to surge back.\"

Southridge senior Christina Lee finished 35th in her first state appearance. Sunnyside junior Brittany Messmore was 60th.

Class 2A

Sequim senior Stephanie Marcy knew when her school dropped down from the 3A ranks that she\'d have to run against a returning state champion in Hockinson senior Sarah Porter and her younger sister Shannon, who was the runner-up.

\"But I knew I had faster times then them coming in,\" Marcy said. \"So I figured it would be a good move pushing the pace.\"

Indeed it was. Marcy led almost wire-to-wire, cruising to a 27-second victory over Shannon Porter. Sarah faded in the final half-mile to finish sixth.

Shannon Porter let Marcy go when she set a blistering early pace.

\"I thought she was going to die off,\" Porter said. \"But by the second mile, I realized she wouldn\'t. She set a good pace.\"

Sehome, another school that dropped down from the 3A ranks, beat defending champion Riverside by 18 points for the team title.

Grandview senior Brittnee Sanchez, the 2004 champion, finished 32nd.

Class 1A

Lizzie Jewson couldn\'t help but peek behind her from time to time.

\"I just had to make sure I was OK,\" the Charles Wright senior said.

She was more than OK.

Jewson led by more than 17 seconds at the first mile mark and cruised to her first state title.

When it was over, Jewson finished with a time of 19:15, 16 seconds ahead of King\'s Olivia Thomas.

\"I just wanted to go out strong, and take control in the first 200 meters,\" she said.

However, Jewson and her teammates were denied their second straight team title by Thomas and her teammates.

King\'s placed all seven runners in the top-32 to win the team title with 72 points. Chelan was second with 102 points. Charles Wright finished fourth with 139 points.

Kiona Benton, back at state for the first time since 2004, finished ninth with 259 points, led by junior Olivia Castleberry in 42nd place with a time of 22:11.

Warden, which finished second at the SCAC district meet, finished 14th with 300 points. Britney Yamane led the Cougars at 23:05.

Class 2B/1B

Northwest Christian (Colbert) freshman Lisa Vandenburg impressed event manager John Crawford a week ago when she romped to victory at the Northeast District meet.

She got the chance to impress a wider audience in the first race of the day, steadily pulling away over the final mile to win in 19:20.

Vandenburg also was upholding the family honor. Her brother Steven was second in the 1A/B race in 2003, and another brother, Brian, ran for the Crusaders at state from 1999-2001.

\"Running is in my blood. I can\'t help it,\" she said.

The state\'s other Northwest Christian from Lacey won the title as the classification debuted as a separate race.

Bickleton sophomore Danielle Raschko became the first Pirates girl to place since Gail Brown in 1973 by finishing 11th in 21:58.

\"I was hoping I would place, but I wasn\'t sure I could,\" Raschko said.

Tri-Cities Prep freshman Carina Leon, the Blue Mountain district champion, finished 20th in 22:47.
