Raider CC takes midseason form


Raider cross country travelled to Kettle Falls Saturday for the CAN-AM Invite, hosted by Colville High School.

The Raiders are in midseason form and showed it by running personal records at the race.

“Three of the five who ran there last year PR’d,” Head Coach Gary Darnold said about his team at CAN-AM. “Both boys and girls ran tough Saturday.”

Will Friedlander improved his time by over 30 seconds, finishing at 20 minutes, 35 seconds.

Robert George was the first Raider across the finish line and improved his time at CAN-AM. George’s time was 19:54, a 16-second improvement from last year. Cameron Tillman ran a 21:50, which is an improvement of seven seconds over last year at Kettle Falls.

Bradley Wilder was the “Most Improved Raider” boy at the CAN-AM. He improved his time at the race by almost four minutes, finishing this year at 21:55.

Loryn Moore led the Raider girls, coming across the finish line at 22:15. Kayla St. Pierre came in second for the Raiders at 24:30. Ashley Palmer finished in 26:09.

Last night the Raiders travelled to Omak for the Omak Invitational.

Then, for the first time in over two years, the Raiders will host a home race this Saturday. Construction of the new school complex had made hosting or even planning for a race impossible.

As it is, a new retaining wall across of the traditional startup hill means runners will head up the path to the right of the football field instead, largely follow a similar course USED in earlier years, Darnold said.

Six schools will attend, and Darnold is looking forward to seeing the Raiders run at home again.
