Neah Bay runs
The Cusick Panthersâ€™ (8-3, 5-2) season came to an end on a frigid Friday night at Silverdale against the Neah Bay Red Devils (10-0, 5-0), 80-28.
The Panthers jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, but a bad couple of minutes early in the second quarter started a Neah Bay rally that didnâ€™t stop until the Red Devils had run into the B-8 semifinals.
Cusick head coach Sonny Finley knew his Panthers had run up against a buzz saw and an eight-man powerhouse.
With rain and 50 mile per hour wind punishing the open expanse of Spokane Valleyâ€™s Plantes Ferry Park last Saturday, Colville cross country standouts Megan Lee and Kevin Carpenter took the opportunity to punch their tickets to the Washingtonâ€™s State Championship. While it was expected that Carpenter, a senior, would make his fourth and final trip to Pascoâ€™s Sun Willows Golf Club, it was Lee who shocked the field, running a personal course record on her way to an eye-opening third place finish.
