Kamiakin boys cross country nationally ranked

July 15, 2013 

The Kamiakin boys cross country team will go into the fall season ranked 14th in the nation by a poll published on RunnerSpace.com and XCNation.com.

The Braves are coming off the most successful season in program history, placing second at state and in Northwest regionals and finishing seventh at Nike Cross Nationals.

They should have four runners back from those teams — seniors Garrett Kraal and Daniel Sanchez and juniors Andrew Snyder and Cameron Glade. Also, senior Keegan McCormick, expected to be the team’s top runner last season, figures to be healthy this year after missing the postseason with appendicitis.

North Central, the seven-time defending 3A state champion, is ranked sixth, led by seniors Kai Wilmot and Olivery Reed and junior Tanner Anderson. The Indians are chasing the state record of nine consecutive titles by Mead, ending in 1996.

Another Spokane school, Central Valley, is ranked 20th.

No Washington schools were ranked in the top 25 of the preseason girls poll.
