Kai Lassen also competed well and finished in the top 8 in the 3,000 metres. He also competed in the 1,500 metre and finished 10th.
The Junior High team saw 14 come out and all did very well with 11 qualifying for Zones. They had two finishing in the top six at Zones. Adrian Ferro placed third in the 800 metres for bantam boys. In the bantam boys 1,500 metres, Joseph Makse placed sixth.
Coach Makse said the team has been training hard in the gym and on the field. For some racers, this was the first time racing on a track. He says the results bode well for the future for these athletes. The team was also coached by Mitchell Orr.
