IHS cross country team continues to shine

ILWACO - In bowling it's a 300 game, in baseball it's no runs, no hits, and no errors, and in cross country it is a score of 15 - a team's first five runners placing one through five - that spells perfection. And a perfect score is exactly what the Ilwaco boys achieved at their home meet Thursday.

Nate Appel cruised over the 2.9 mile course in 16:49, finishing just five seconds ahead of Ed Guelfi. Third place went to Derek Duffy in 17:29, Jordan Williams placed fourth with 17:37, and Jon Fagerlund completed the sweep for Ilwaco in a time of 18:19.
