MANSON — The Omak High School cross country teams opened their season zipping through a smoky course to bring home trophies Saturday.

“Despite a hazy smoke, the air quality was acceptable to run at Wapato Point,” Omak coach Sean Kato said. “At this point we usually have three races in, but due to the smoky air in early September we did not race our first two scheduled events.

“The Pioneer runners have been excited to get the competitions started so it was nice to be able get them racing on Saturday. The team is looking very strong for early season, with lots of fitness still to build.

“The girls’ team, led by Evangeline Lamb, dominated the girls’ race from start to finish,” Kato said. “Evangeline Lamb took an early lead and held strong out front all the way to the finish line. Freshman Caiden Chapa trailed behind Lamb throughout the race.”

The boys’ race was pretty exciting as the team score was very close,” said Kato.

“The Pioneer men edged out Tonasket by one point for a 45 to 46 win. I’m very proud of how both the Pioneer men and ladies’ teams stayed focused and ran their races from line to line.”
