WOOD First-year cross country coach Elijah Gregg is pretty excited ,about this season and for good reason. His boys team returns two state veterans and their top-5 runners from last season. It is safe to say Quincy is one of the teams to watch in the Cen: tral Washington Athletic Conference. "I'm excited for this upcoming season," Gregg said. "These athletes have been running for several years and all seniors are our fastest." "~th all the experience back on the team, the goal and focus for this year is the state meet. Quincy will be led by Spencer Elmore and Victor Salgado and round out the top-5 with Jimmy Garcia, Gustavo Mendoza and Jesus Guzman. They were the "team's top finishers at Saturday's Farm-to- Market 5K run, Elmore led the pack with a time of 18 minutes, 11 seconds, while Salgado crossed in a time of 18:12. Garcia (18:55) and Mendoza (18:56) were within a second of each other and Guzman clocked in at 20:10. "They're smart and know how to race," Gregg said. "They know how to compete as a team. "There are individual aspects, but it's a team sport." Perhaps the real battle will be for the sixth and seventh spots on the varsity roster. During Saturday's run, the next fastest run- ners were Daniel Cruz (20:12), Cyril Berndt (20:14), Dylan Baty (20:50), Zhorik Roseburg (21:28), Brandon Melburn (21:28), Andy Reynolds (23:28), Gabe Elmore (25:34) and Octavio Bus- tos (25:38). "They will help us score Some points, or not score some points. This is like golf- the lower the score the beReT," Gregg said. "I know that the six and seven spots are going to be competitive." The girls The girls will be led by junior Dezarae Westra. She is the lone returner for new coach Greg Martinez. On Saturday she ran the 3.16 mile course in 23:03. She was joined by two teammates, Jazmine Benitez (27:32) and Hannah Safe (29:41). "(Westra) has been good and injury free," Martinez said. "She's wanting to do workouts with the guys and she's ready to push herself." Martinez is looking at Hannah Soelter to run side-by-side with Westra by season's end. "Hannah should be up there," Martinez said. "She's very com- petitive and doesn't like to lose." Others on the roster are Kateri Rowell, Zaira James, Sam Schaapman and Baylee Elmore'.
