Cross Country at State
by Coach Bruce
McDowell Monday, November 11
On Saturday, the Cedarcrest XC
squad competed at the State
Championship Meet held at the Sun
Willows Golf Course in Pasco.
The course was in fantastic
shape--nice and dry. It was
nothing like the sogginess that we
have had on our courses on this
side of the mountains. It was a
bit cold and windy, but good
distance running weather.
Olivia Waterman and Amelia Anderson
were first up. Olivia ran a great
race, moving up throughout the
race, to finish in 9th place.
That earned Olivia a spot on the
podium. A podium spot had
been the goal for a year when she
missed the podium by two places
last year (finishing 18th).
Olivia joins Kelly Ramirez, Caitlin
Ramirez, Cara Strodel and Missy
Dowd on the list of Cedarcrest XC
girl podium placers. That is
pretty elite list. Amelia ran
a good race herself to finish in
34th place, which is her highest
place at the state meet.
I figured that the boys squad had a
shot at a top four place (and a
trophy), but it was hard to tell
what the other teams had.
Team races are so difficult to
predict at the state level.
There are so many more runners to
run against with comparable
ability, plus qualifying teams are
coming into the meet from vastly
different courses. Even
watching the race is difficult
because a few teams (us included)
wear non-traditional uniforms.
Our squad went “old school” wearing
the old 1993 Wolfpack tanks.
Our seven runners for the boys were
Logan Orndorf, Quinn Radbourne,
Jonathan Gunderson, Ian Fay, Colton
Green, Gage Catherman and Cameron
Hammontree. Our alternates
were John Shaw and Evan Atwater.
Logan (similar to Olivia) moved up
throughout the race to finish 5th.
Quinn (33rd), Jonathan
(37th), Colton (73rd)
and Ian (81st) rounded
out our top five. It was a
great team effort by all of the
boys. That put Logan on the
podium for the third time. I
think that Mitchell Montgomery and
James Conrick are OK with me saying
that this meet further solidifies
that Logan is the best boy
Cedarcrest XC runner in school
history. One added bonus was
that Logan qualified for the Nike
Borderclash race, which is an
All-star race with runners from
Oregon and Washington.
After the race we had to wait for
the final team results, which are
not always prompt. Shout out
to Case deVries, the Anacortes
coach, who happens to be a former
CHS student and former T&F athlete
of mine. I was walking to
find results when he sees me and
gives me three fingers. At
first I didn’t really believe him,
but he showed me the official
results. Third place for the
boys. It was fantastic news.
Needless to say the boys were
ecstatic. They become the
first Cedarcrest XC boys team to
earn a state trophy. The
trophy will go next to the two
girls’ trophies that we have from
2008 (2nd) and 2009 (3rd).
A couple more items. It is
hard to pick the Athletes of the
Meet--but it is hard to ignore
Olivia and Logan making the podium.
Besides those two, we will
recognize Jonanthan Gunderson
(probably the smartest runner there
is because of his decision to wear
earplugs so he doesn’t have to
listen to me yelling at him) and
Gage Catherman (who has endured
three weeks of biking to keep him
Thanks to all the parents that were
at the meet cheering on their
athletes. Thanks to the
non-state meet Cedarcrest XC
members that spent a long Saturday
coming to watch their teammates.
Special thanks to Monty Hammontree
for willing to drive those CXC
members to the meet.

Thursday, August 28
summer the High School TSA National
Conference was held in Orlando,
Florida at the end of June with
about 5,500 attendees. We're
technically international with the
farthest school coming from
Istanbul. California finally joined
in this year and we expect they
will easily double the size of TSA
over the next 3-5 years.
in a variety of areas including
fashion design, photography,
graphics, and video. Three CHS
students--Adam Golden, Alex
Vicars-Harris, and Eric James--took
10th place in Digital Video
Production for the theme "follow
the rules" and how that is
interpreted by those with an
entitled perspective. I believe its
our highest ranking ever in this
category with a very competitive
field on entries this year. This is
our fifth straight year of placing
or winning at the national level.
