Cross Country Regions at Sitka

Kayhi cross country will send seven boys and seven girls to Sitka for Regions to race Sep. 28. The top team and the top ten individuals for both sides will head to state Oct.5. 
“The competition got steeper this year,” said junior Morgan Elerding. “My freshman year I placed 7th in Regions, and I have the same time now as I did then and I place 15th now.” 
The boys race will start at 11:40 and the girls will follow after them at 12:55. The 4A portion of the competition will consist of Kayhi, Thunder Mountain and Juneau Douglas. Elerding talks about her confidence in freshman Anneliese Hiatt on qualifying for state.
“Anneliese Hiatt has a good chance to make it to state,” said Elerding. “She is top 9 right now and just needs to stay up with the front of the pack on Saturday to make it.”
Sophomore Brent Capps is Kayhi’s top runner on the boys side. Last weekend Brent came in second to Dominic Baciocco from Sitka.  
“I believe that I can get first this race putting in everything I’ve got,” said Brent Capps.
