N. Kitsap, Kingston both fall in cross country meets

The North Kitsap boys and girls cross country teams drew a tough matchup Saturday in 3A Central Kitsap, and the Cougars prevailed in both races.

Dereck Cordova was the top boys runner for the Vikings, finishing third on the 5,000-meter course at Marcus Whitman Middle School in Port Orchard. His time was 18 minutes, 22.6 seconds. Matthew Fee came in next for the visitors, finishing fifth in 18:44.5. The other three scoring runners were Samuel Erickson (20:01.6), Carson Monette (20:05.9) and James Trogden (21:12.9).

For the girls, freshman Salix Wartes-Kahl finished eighth with a time of 22:59.9. Right behind her was Genesi Funston (23:00.5) in ninth. Emily Grant (24:16), Ingrid Burchill (24:19.1) and Kendall Becker (25:01.7) rounded out their top five.

The Kingston boys and girls had an equally difficult assignment with a meet against Klahowya, one of the top 1A programs in the state, at Port Townsend Golf Club.

Bucs freshman Arlana Forbes-Prater was the first across the line for her team, finishing fifth in 25:00.2. Another freshman, Alice Moe, was just a few seconds behind in sixth (25:04), followed by Grace Epperson (27:40.5), Claire Moe (28:06.3), and Lynn Nelson (29:06.2).

Curtis Upton finished third for the Kingston boys in 17:34.6. Connor Nichols finished seventh with a time of 19:19.5, followed in consecutive order by Thomas Brown (19:24.6), Emmanuel Moes (19:56.7) and Kaeden Peterson (20:20.8).
