Eagles win track opener over Mount Si
March 30, 2010
The Issaquah High School boys cross country team was a power last fall, when it won league and district titles en route to a third-place finish at the state meet.
It seems like that group of guys wants to make the track team a power this spring, too. Issaquah, showing strength in the distance events, won its KingCo Conference opener March 25 by defeating host Mount Si 78-67.
Isaac Robinson, who was on the cross country team last fall, won two events for the Eagles. He captured the 800 and the 1,600. Robinson won the 800 with a time of two minutes, 9.1 seconds and took the 1,600 in 4:36.4.
The Eagles took the top three places in the 800 and the top five places in the 1,600. Jon Wallis finished second to Robinson in the 800 in 2:11.3, and Dennis Leigh was runner-up to Robinson in the 1,600 in 4:41.5. Wallis and Leigh were members of the juggernaut cross country team as was Turner Wiley.
Wiley led an Issaquah sweep in the 3,200, winning the race in 10:14.6. Leigh and Patrick Violette were second and third.
The Eagles didn’t win the meet just with distance runners. Issaquah also got first places from Connor Pearl, Alexander Farmer, Josh Martyn and Jeremiah Odom.
