The Cardinal Cross Country Teams made the long trip up to Coeur d'Alene for the 2009 State Cross Country Meet @ Circling Raven Golf Course in Worley, ID. The Panhandle of Idaho would treat the Cardinal well once again as both the boys and girls teams would bring home a State Championship trophy and banner. For the girls, it was their 4 consecutive State Championship and for the boys, it was their first one since 2006.

Bailee Siepert led the Lady Cardinals finishing in 3rd with a time of 20:31. Quincie Clark ran a gutsy race finishing in 10th place with a time of 21:14. Danyka Deno finished in 11th with a time of 21:27. Cathryn Smith finished in 13th place with a time of 21:36. Carlie Olson rounded out the All-State runners for the Lady Cardinals finishing in 18th place with a time of 22:05. Just out of the medals was sophomore Dominique Froehlich in 22nd place with a time of 22:23. Vanessa Vranes finished in 34th place with a time of 23:18 to round out the State Championship run. Cheyanne Williams also ran well finishing in 27th place with a time of 22:34. GREAT JOB LADIES...it has been so fun working with you these last few months...and it will be tough to see you seniors go, but it has been a pleasure being your coach...THANKS!!!

The boys side was full of upsets starting with senior Kasey Meyers. Kasey led the young group of Cardinal Harriers with an individual State Championship to go along with his three third place finishes in previous years. A pack of "Red and Black" would follow with Coby Young earning the 20th place medal with a time of 18:11.07 followed by Micah Bowman in 21st place in 18:11.65 and Cody Moore in 22nd place with a time of 18:12. Aaron Petersen finished in 38th place with a time of 18:45. J.D. Bailey broke 19 minutes finishing in 42nd place and running a time of 18:53, and Caden Steele rounded out the State Championship TEAM effort finishing in 50th place with a time of 19:13.

You should be proud of your efforts to sacrifice for the good of the TEAM...I'm so happy for you guys...you picked a good day for your first win of the season!!!
