2016 record: “The 2016 season was very successful for Kingston High School,” head coach Lee Wilson said. “The boys team finished second in the Olympic League, third in the district meet and ninth at the state meet. The girls team finished fourth in the Olympic League and sixth in the district meet — just missing qualifying for the state meet. The top five teams qualified.”

Coaching record:

Returning athletes: The girls team has a strong group of underclass runners returning this season, including Aidan Mills, who qualified as an individual for the state meet last year. Other top returners are Alice Jewell, Claire Larson, Emily Lekberg, Bridget McMahon, Kenzie Rutherford, Montana Thoroughman.

The boys team has many returning runners who competed in the state meet last year and will be strong contenders to return to state this year. They include David Anderson, Dylan Chandler, Stefans Lusis, Joshua Miles, Alexander Robertson, Tor Sather, Colin Walmsley, Quinn Walmsley.

Season outlook: “We are very excited about both our girls and boys teams this year because of a large number of returning runners,” Wilson said. “We expect both teams to qualify for the cross country state meet on Nov. 4 in Pasco.”
