XC Athletes of the Week - Week 8
Luke Martin (Highline, Sophomore)
Event: 8 Kilometer Cross Country; Mark: 26:25.0 at NWAACC North-West Region Championships
- "Raced well against tough competition."
- "What a performance from this young man! Luke showed more mental toughness in this race than I can remember seeing from anyone in a long time. At the two mile mark he looked like he'd gone out too hard and was already paying the price, but never gave in and just kept battling on the way to a 4th place finish. With runners like Luke there's no doubt that Highline's men will make their presence felt at the NWAACC Championships!"
Katie Strong (Everett, Freshman)
Event: 5 Kilometer Cross Country; Mark: 17:59.7 at NWAACC North-West Region Championships
- "A tremendous performance from Katie on her way to winning the individual title at the North-West Region Championship."
- "Wow, what a finish. She started her kick about 1200m and never slowed down...and got under 18 minutes."
