The Kayhi Cross Country Team competed at Regions in Juneau last weekend, and seven of the runners will be competing again this weekend at the state meet.
The runners in the top ten qualify for the state meet, Kayhi had four boys in the top ten this year: Sylvan Blankenship, Leif Svenson, Trent Rodanhisler, and Leif Stephens. The girls had three runners qualify: Erika Rodanhisler, Sarah Cool, and Elizabeth Knight.
The girls team placed third overall, with Juneau Douglas in first, and Thunder Mountain in second. The boys team ended second, barely trailing JD and beating TM by a wide margin.
For seniors Cool, Katie Powers, Svenson, Rudy Pankow, Blankenship, and Leo Jackson this is their last Regions.
The state competitors leave Wednesday Sept. 30 to attend the State race in Anchorage on Saturday Oct. 3.
