Two runners try Junior Olympics
Two Vashon High school freshmen boys competed in the regional junior Olympics 4 km. cross- country race Saturday, Nov. 17, in Sandy, Ore.
The race had 67 finishers from Oregon., Washington and Idaho.
Maximo Mandl placed eighth with a time of 14:54 and Aidan Cyra placed 43rd. According to a source (Maximo’s mom), this was the muddiest, rainiest race the boys had ever been involved in, so it was quite a feat to finish.
Mandl has qualified and plans to compete in Lawrence, Kan., Dec. 8, in the 2007 USA National Junior Olympics cross-country championships.
X-country ends with awards
The year-end awards for the Vashon High School cross-country team were handed out at the first week of November team banquet.
Team captains were Keller Cyra for the boys and Emma Frost for the girls.
Savannah Krug for the girls and Ramsey Walker for the boys were named most inspirational.
Most improved were Aidan Cyra for the boys and Kat Costello for the girls.
The teams voted on those three awards, and the coaches voted, naturally, for the Coaches Award, won by Maximo Mandl for the boys and Kate Straube for the girls.
The awards are 8” x 11” plaques with a green template engraved with the award and the name of the athlete.
