The Roosevelt girls have finished three meets in the last two weeks and have looked darn competitive in those meets. Starting with the KingCo Preview meet, everyone got a good look at the area’s 4A runners. No score was kept at the meet, but consecutive two-time state champs, Eastlake, their Sammamish neighbors, Skyline, Redmond, Newport, Inglemoor and Woodinville all look tough this year.
This past week, again at Lincoln Park, Roosevelt ran very well in a close meet against Newport and Inglemoor. Again, no official score was announced, but only 8 points separated the first and third place teams.
Yesterday, at the South Whidbey Invitational, the girls finished 10th ahead of KingCo rivals Bothell and Ballard, but just behind Woodinville and Newport. The story here was senior, Lucy Cheadle’s emergence as one of the area’s better harriers. She finished second to Northwest School’s Maddie Meyers, 2009 1A state champ and ahead of 2009 3A state champ, Glacier Peak’s Amy-Eloise Neale. Excellent work, Lucy!
