The wave of green and gold singlets gliding through the finish chute on Sept. 26th was somewhat of a tidal wave as the Redmond girls and boys varsity and JV boys swept the six-team meet at Finn Hill Junior high. The girls went 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, led by the 1-2 punch of junior Sarah Lord and sophomore Devin McMahon. The Lady Stangs are currently sitting 4th in the state coaches poll and are currently undefeated in regular season league meets. On the boys side, senior Anthony Ellis led Redmond to victory. Junior Aiden Irish followed in 2nd with fellow sophomore teammates, Mack Young and Will Young (no relation) in 7th and 8th.

A lot of excited energy is building up in the final preparations for tomorrow\'s 4A KingCo Championship meet. And finally, someone else not named Zack will be crowned the individual champion in the 11-team race for the first time in two seasons.
Oh Lord, she\'s fast! Sarah Lord led the 5th ranked 4A Redmond Mustangs to victory over league rivals Eastlake, Juanita and Lake Washington last Thursday at Grasslawn Park. The Mustangs capped an undefeated regular dual-meet season as they finished out at 10-0 heading into this week\'s showdown at the KingCo Championship meet.Lord cruised on the flat and fast course, setting a new course record in 18:08. But unlike some of her previous races, Lord was challenged from the start with a pack of Eastlake Wolves on her heels. The Wolves, ranked just a spot ahead of Redmond in a previous 4A poll, put Redmond to the test, packing their top 6 in the lead pack in the early parts of the race.
