The Jackson boys and girls cross country teams dominated last weekend’s Western Conference 4A South Division championships.

The Timberwolves won both the individual and team titles.

Wolfpack senior Caleb Knox passed Kamiak’s Kelly Spady on a slight rise around 300 yards from the finish and raced away to a 10-second victory. Jackson’s Jeff Helmer placed fourth.

Jackson had five finishers in the top 15 to seize the team title with 38 points. Kamiak (62) took second, followed by Edmonds-Woodway (76), Mountlake Terrace (101) and Shorewood (122).

In the girls competition, Jackson runners took five of the top 15 places, allowing the Timberwolves to squeak by Kamiak for the team championship, 59 points to 62.

Other top area finishers included Edmonds-Woodway’s Kate Southcote-Want, who placed third, and Mountlake Terrace’s Estelle Kills Right , who was sixth.

In the boys race, Edmonds-Woodway Derry Betts and Michael Stewart were sixth and seventh, respectively. Meadowdale’s Daniel Stabbert was eighth.

State berths go to the top two teams and the top 10 individuals at districts, down from three team and 15 individual berths last year.

Lynnwood and Meadowdale along with Shorecrest will compete against the Northwest 3A League at Northwest Districts for three team and 15 individual state berths.

This year’s state meet is set for Nov. 8 at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.

DISTRICT TENNIS: Edmonds-Woodway’s Reid Fenning took third place in singles at the Western Conference 4A South Division tournament and advanced to districts. Fenning defeated Shorewood’s Sachin Narvekar 7-6, 6-2.

The Warrior doubles team of Sam Zipper and Mike Maldazys also took third place and moved on to districts.

Meadowdale’s Andrew Wilson finished second and Lynnwood’s Ryan Crollard was third in the 3A singles tournament. The Maverick doubles team of Jared Dyson and Rey Hagens placed second.
