The Vashon High School Pirates came away from the league championships for cross country with wins in two separate sports: The girls’ team won the Nisqually League Championship, placing five scoring runners in the top eight finishers for a score of 29. In the second sport, Pirates Mason Carter and Selena Mildon won the post-race pie eating contest during the welcome good weather for the day that was sandwiched between days of downpours and windstorms.
