SEQUIM — The Kingston High School boys team left the Olympic League Championships with a first place victory over Sequim Oct. 18.

Kingston (71) finished first, during the league meet. Sequim (74) was a close second.

The girls' team finished in second, behind North Kitsap.

Annie Roberts took fifth place (19:55.14). North Kitsap's Reagan Colyer finished first (18:58.57).

With the top finishes, both teams will send runners to the West Central District III Westside Classic Oct. 27 at American Lake Golf Course, 9600 Veterans Drive SW, Tacoma. The top seven runners from each team will attend.
