The girls race begins at 11:45 a.m. and the boys at 1:15 p.m. The competition for the region V tournament in 4A division are  Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain. For most runners this is their last race, but for state qualifiers they still have to prepare for the state race.
The top ten runners in the 4a Region V boys and girls races will qualify for the state championship race the following week.
Based on season results, Kayhi will likely finish third.
Kayhi’s top three male runners have a chance to qualify for state – junior John Coss with 18:15, junior Paul Allmendinger with 18:19, sophomore Leif Stephens with 18:44.
Three Kayhi girls are likely to qualify for state as well  – sophomore Elizabeth Knight 22:13, senior Desiree De Mello 23:08, and senior Tori Seley 23:20 who is in the mix of qualifiers.
Coach Woodward said she thinks the team is ready.
“They are in top shape. We spent this past week doing low miles and fast bursts, so they are sufficiently rested and ready to come out strong at regions. I anticipate PR’s”.
