Courtney Owens, Hannah Wright, Karina Miller and Meredith Collins crossed the finish line in order to help the Washougal girls cross country team win the league championship race Thursday, at Hockinson Meadows.
Owens finished the 5,000-meter course in fourth place with a time of 21 minutes, 36.5 seconds. Wright followed her in fifth place (21:53.5), Miller claimed sixth place (21:55.6) and Collins snagged seventh place (21:59.6).
“We were all in a line. We didn’t really plan that, it just happened, which is good,” Owens said. “It made me really proud of everyone. We all worked so hard for this.”
