Shorecrest five edge Snohomish


Herald Writer

SEATTLE – Snohomish had the best team of seven runners at Friday’s Class 4A bi-district meet, but Shorecrest’s group of five claimed victory.

The Panthers claimed seven of the top 42 places over the 3.1-mile Lincoln Park course, but only the top five runners’ points count toward theteam score.

The Scots beat Snohomish by 10 points after placing five runners in the top 28.

Edmonds-Woodway and Marysville-Pilchuck also qualified for the Nov. 4 state meet with third- and fourth-place finishes as Wesco 4A teams swept the team state berths. Wesco 4A runners also claimed 14 of the 20 individual state spots.

Spencer Walsh led the Scots with a ninth-place finish. Snohomish’s Jimmie Poier, who place fifth, was proud of his team’s performance.

“I think we all ran pretty well,” Poier said. “The guys ran great races and stepped it up. It was a big meet, they knew they had to perform, and they did.”

Kamiak’s Travis Boyd finished second after what he considered a disappointing sixth-place finish at the Oct. 19 Western Conference 4A meet.

“I felt a lot better this time,” said the junior, who did not go to the 1999 state meet because of injury. “Last week I just kind of died at the end. I was much stronger this time.”

Cascade’s Andy Fader finished third with a time of 15:53, just two seconds behind Boyd. Roosevelt’s Bjorn Frderickson won the race in 15:44.
