King wins WesCo Division title

Sophomore Tyler King dueled stride for stride with Cascade’s Dylan Hooper down the final straightaway at Saturday afternoon’s WesCo North Divisional cross country meet held on the 5,000-meter course at Lakewood High School. But in the end, it was the Whidbey Island speedster who pulled ahead and won the title.

King, who attends Coupeville High School but runs on the Oak Harbor team, crossed the finish line in a time of 16:15.60, besting Hopper by a little more than a second.

Team-wise, Lake Stevens captured the boys championship with a low total of 51 points. Snohomish was second and Cascade placed third.

Oak Harbor’s team total of 110 points was good enough for a fourth-place finish.

Senior captain Josh Duhrkopf was the other Wildcat finishing in the top 15, coming home in 13th place with a time of 17:16.71.

In the girls half of the race, Stanwood won the team championship with 56 points, followed by Snohomish (70) and Monroe (82).

Oak Harbor’s Allison Duvenez finished sixth overall with a time of 19:41.99 and teammate Adrianna Royal was ninth clocked at 19:56.54 to earn the Wildcats a fifth-place finish with a team total of 108 points.

The next stop for the team is at the WesCo 4A District championship Saturday, Nov. 1, at South Whidbey High School in Langley.

The girls race begins at 12:50 p.m. and the boys step off at 2:30 p.m.
