Beaver Sports Roundup: September 24
The Beaver cross-country team competed in the Bellevue High Invitational on Saturday, a meet that included 46 teams from all over the state. The event featured four varsity races, with two runners from each school represented in each race, and took place at Lake Sammamish state park.
Of the Ballard runners participating in the races, three finished in the top-10. Senior Alex Bowns —coming off of his third victory in a row on Wednesday— competed in the 5,000 meter 1-2 race, which featured the top two runners from each school. Bowns clocked a 16:03, which was good enough for 5th place out of 56 runners.
The other two Beavers who finished in the top-10 include junior Matt Rusk, competing in the 5-6 race with 67 other runners, who finished 9th with a time of 17:26. For the Women’s team, junior Anna Mirenzi ran a 20:41 in the 3-4 race, finishing 8th out of 46 runners.
Ballard’s next meet is this Wednesday at Issaquah high school.
The Beaver soccer team took the pitch Saturday against Woodinville, but was unable to find the back of the net.
The game was tied coming into the 2nd half, but goals by Woodinville’s Reagan Quigley and Julianne Smith gave the Falcons the win at 2-0.
Next Tuesday at 7:30, the Beavers will travel to Issaquah to take on the Eagles.
