Havasu boys and girls cross country take second to Lee Williams at Parker Multiple

September 13, 2018

The battle between the Lake Havasu and Lee Williams cross country teams continued on Wednesday at the Parker Multiple. This time the Volunteers came out on top as both the boys and girls teams took second.

The boys lost to Lee Williams by 10 points. The girls were only five points behind.

“It was a little disappointing on the boys side after beating (Lee Williams) last week,” Lake Havasu coach Erika Washington said. “But we’re pretty close to them, so I have a feeling its going to be switching back-and-forth during these weekly Wednesday meets.

Joshua Hansen continued to lead Havasu as he ran a time of 18 minutes, 14 seconds to be the first Knight to finish.

While the boys are improving their times slightly with each match, the girls took a big stride of improvement on Wednesday after losing to the Volunteers by 23 points last week in Kingman.

Dailynn Evans (22:55), Sydney Huffman (23:40), Zoe Dondero (25:37) all improved their times from the Kingman meet to help the Knights close the gap.

Havasu now has week to practice before heading back to Kingman on Wednesday for the Kingman Multiple at 4 p.m.

The Knights are also still accepting entries for the eight annual Fighting Knights 5K cross country fun run to help the cross country team fund travel cost to races outside the region. Email coach Washington at ewashington.k12.az.us for more information.
