Comments:

The Thompson Falls Invitational was a very promising meet for the Whitefish High School Girls and Boys Cross Country teams. Both came away with team victories against nine other schools at the River's Bend Golf Course in Thompson Falls.

The Lady Bulldogs won their competition with a low score of 42 points. Columbia Falls finished second with 83 points. WHS was led by Sarah Latcham with her third place finish in 21:18 for the three mile course. Peyton Twete (6th in 21:49) and Barrett Gray (9th in 21:58) also both finished in the top ten to help with the team win. Sloan Ellis (11th in 22:41), Emma Marchetti (13th in 22:50), Autumn Fisher (15th in 22:57) and Sami Eason (16th in 22:58) all finished in the top 16, as the top seven Varsity runners.

"Our top three ran very well today. Sarah, Peyton and Barrett have been doing a great job in leading our team. They mix it up well with the other front runners and that really helps us out in the team score."

"We've been working on packing the rest of our runners closer to the top three and today the results show that it's been working. We were really happy with the Girls and their first team win of the season."

The Bulldog boys were first in the team competition with Jace Kalbfleisch (2nd in 16:24), Fischer Gangemi (3rd in 16:27) and Caleb Knox (4th in 17:13) leading the way.

Keaton Grove (7th in 17:45), Thomas Henson (8th in 17:47), Waylon Roberts (12th in 18:23) and Elias Taylor (13th in 18:24) rounded out the WHS Varsity runners. A total of 83 runners participated in the boy's event.

"Jace and Fischer continue to show me that they can run near the front in every race that they attempt. Today it was Jace in the top position for the team. Fischer was right behind him at the finish. Today Caleb Knox also made his presence known by finishing fourth in the meet. He's improvement really gives us the 1-2-3 that is hard for others to match."

"I was very pleased with the effort of the whole team on a hot day. They are proving themselves as a tough team to beat."
