That sinking feeling...
Seattle Christian School's girls team sunk into state by the thinnest of margins -- one point -- taking second over Bellevue Christian, 76-77, while the boys team made it a little more easily, finishing second, too, 62-73, over Charles Wright in the Westside Classic Cross-Country Championships 1A district meet Saturday. The action was held on the 3.2 mile course on the American Lake Golf Course south of Tacoma.
Tyee junior Alexis Sata (21:08.06) took 27th in 2A and Kennedy Catholic freshman, Lily Grassley(20:51.79) finished 20th in 3A to qualify individually.
Highline senior Kelvin Herbruger (17:13.45) 29th, goes, too, in 2A, and Tyee senior Hector Dominguez (17:08.57) qualified 27th.
And Mount Rainier's lone runner to state, in 4A, is junior Austin Regier in 23rd.
But the biggest story on this day was the Seattle Christian girls' one-point win, and how it happened was definitely against the odds.
