Cross Country Wrap-up, State Meet and Banquet

Abigail Hundley
Abigail Hundley was the girls’ MVP, All Western League, and advanced to the State Meet.

The Islander Cross Country season finally came to an end on November 30th at the State Meet in Fresno, California. Our two advancers, Landon Mullins and Abigail Hundley, both posted Personal Records on the 5000-meter Woodward Park course that hasn’t changed since the inaugural meet in 1987. Landon’s time of 16:40 was 72 seconds better than he ran last year as a freshman. Abigail’s time of 19:40 was nearly 30 seconds faster than her previous best time on the course set last year as a sophomore. At our post-season awards banquet, the girls’ MVP award went to Abigail Hundley. The boys’ Co-MVP award went to the Mullins brothers, Cole and Landon. Cole was also the boys’ team Captain. Cole and Casey Harris were honored as our two graduating seniors, both having run Cross Country for four years.

Abigail and Sofia Van Arsdale were the girls’ Co-Captains. A “Rookie of the Year” award went to freshman Dana Jennings, who nearly advanced to the state meet. Had she run only eight seconds faster at the CIF finals she would have qualified.
