Snohomish girls put team depth on display


Herald Writer

SEATTLE -Snohomish may not have a dominant runner, but the Panthers had enough depth to win the the Wesco 4A-Kingco 4A bi-district meet Friday at Lincoln Park.

Mary Malgesini finished sixth and Amanda Mowers was eight as Snohomish placed five runners in the top 18 to beat Marysville-Pilchuck by four points.

The Panthers and the Tomahawks qualified their teams for the state Nov. 4 state meet in Pasco along with Kamiak and Eastlake.

The Western Conference 4A schools dominated the event, taking three of four team state berths and 16 of 20 individual state spots.

“I’m really happy about the team,” Malgesini said. “The last two years, we’ve won Wesco, then it comes to districts, and Marysville beats us. It’s been frustrating.”

The Tomahawks claimed two of the top four spots, but did not have the top-to-bottom strenth of their conference rivals.

Aimee Spada (13th), Shelby Campbell (14th), and Ashley Meyers (18th) also finished in the top 20.

Marysville-Pilchuck’s Camille Connelly, who is still suffering from a cold, stayed with winner Susannah Shaw of Eastlake for 2 of the 3.1 miles, but wound up fourth. Teammate Amber Simkins finished second, 20 seconds behind Shaw.

“I just felt really strong,” said Simkins, who finished third at the Oct. 19 league meet. “This is a fast course, and I like that.”
