ILWACO -The Ilwaco Middle School cross-country team ended another successful season at the Kalama league meet Thursday. Although small in numbers, the squad followed the high school's tradition of "total commitment," according to coach Sarah Taylor.

Stephen Berglund, who trained during the winter and worked out with the high school team, placed first in all but two of the meets he ran, according to the coach. Robert Gibbons, also an eighth-grader, made "huge improvements" in following in his uncle Ivan Bannon's footsteps by finishing third at the league meet.
