North Kitsap girls win league championship

SEQUIM — The North Kitsap High School girls cross country team continued to do what it's done all season: Win.

The girls, led by Reagan Colyer, finished first in the Olympic League Championships Oct. 18. Based on how the team has performed this season, it wasn't much of a surprise, assistant coach Jonathan Erickson said.

Colyer led the pack, finishing in 18 minutes 58.57 seconds. Kathleen Ramsey finished second (19:06.73). Clara Lund (19:40.72) finished in fourth, behind Port Townsend's Brittany Grant (19;15.20).

However, the team's coaches don't pressure the North Kitsap teams during championships. Taking the league title is nice, Erickson said, but it's more about doing what it takes to move on. And move on they shall.

Both North Kitsap boys and girls will head to the West Central District III Westside Classic Oct. 27 at American Lake Golf Course, 9600 Veterans Drive Southwest, Tacoma. The top seven runners from each team will attend.

Those heading to Districts from the girls team are Colyer, Kathleen Ramsey, Clara Lund, Olivia Krol, Katrina Weinmann, Sarah Zimmerman and Kristina Reid.

Runners from the boys team going to Districts are Ian Christen, Cooper Wall, Ethan Schmitt, Sean Hitchcock, Dutton Polk, Jameel Kim and Kellson Arthurs.

The boys finished the league championships in third, behind Kingston and Sequim.

Twelve teams from both the boys and girls division will compete at District's; six boys teams and five girls teams will advance to the 2A State Championships Nov. 3. The top 16 individuals will move on as well, even if their team does not make it.

"We're feeling good about taking them to the district meet," Erickson said.
