Track and field athletes know the maxim well — it’s not how you start the season, but how you finish that truly matters.
A couple of Issaquah High School’s top athletes are going through that process this season. During an April 23 home meet against Class 4A KingCo Conference opponents Eastlake and Inglemoor, seniors Ellie Clawson and Ray Littles each sought improvements after slow starts to the season.

Their teams haven’t had the type of season they were hoping for, but Issaquah High School runners Kennan Schrag and Ellie Clawson aren’t being deterred from their individual goals.
Schrag, a sophomore, topped the boys field, and Clawson, a junior, won the girls race when Issaquah squared off with Skyline and Newport in an Oct. 16 KingCo Conference cross country race at Bellevue’s Kelsey Creek Park.
In the boys race, Issaquah fell short of rival Skyline, which captured the team win with 34 points. However, the Eagles (48 points) won a tiebreaker and defeated Newport for their second win of the season.
Issaquah’s top three runners set the pace for the first half of the 3.1-mile race. Schrag, fellow sophomore Jacob Brueckman, and senior Caleb Walin got out quickly and formed their own pack.
