Cross country opens season at Moses Lake


Raider cross country travelled to Moses Lake Saturday to take part in the Moses Lake Invitational, where many regional schools were in attendance.

Some, like Lake Roosevelt, were running the first race of the 2015 season.

For the Raiders, it was a good start, Head Coach Gary Darnold said. “They all gave very strong efforts for the first race.”

Will Friedlander was the first Raider boy across the finish line, with a time of 21 minutes, 33 seconds. Loryn Moore led the Raider girls with 24:43.

Darnold pointed out that the split between the lead runner and the sixth finisher for LR was 3 minutes and 30 seconds. “We just need to group up more in our places,” he said, but the team did live up to his expectations. “The boys and girls both met my expectations for their willingness to give their all for their teams,” he said.

The Raider Cross Country team has time this week to work on speed and pacing as they prepare for the Runner’s Soul Invite in Spokane Valley at Plantes Ferry this Saturday, where they will “race against the biggest schools of the season,” Darnold said.

Races for LR at Plantes Ferry begin at 11:45 a.m. with the boys’ junior varsity race, followed at 12:45 p.m. with the girls’ varsity, then by the boys’ varsity races.
