East Jefferson boasts top times in cross country

Posted

East Jefferson runners claimed first place in both the boys and girls races cross country against Olympic Saturday.

The teams raced at the Dungeness Spit Wildlife Refuge off Voice of America Road in Sequim on March 6.

Conditions were described as sunny and beautiful for the 9:45 a.m. start of the boys race.

East Jefferson’s Max Allworth-Miles won the race for the boys. 

Allworth-Miles, a junior, finished in a time of 18:27.4, followed by sophomore teammate Sebastian Manza in 18:57.7.

Freshman Braley Phillips was the third runner for the EJ boys for a sixth-place overall finish. His time was 24:51.9, but he, along with a handful of other runners, ended up running an extra 290 meters due to a poorly marked course. 

The EJ team placed second to Olympic.

The girls ran the 5k course at 10:45 a.m. and Port Townsend sophomore Camryn Hines won in a time of 22:14.6.

East Jefferson freshman Aliyah Yearian was close behind in 22:18.5. 

The third-place finisher was from Olympic while the fourth- and fifth-place finishers were EJ runners; junior Lia Poore and freshman Sylvia Butterfield in 25:59.2 and 26:03.9, respectively.

Olympic didn’t have a complete team so the EJ girls won, according to the EJ coaching staff.
