Oak Harbor High School cross country runners finished first in both the boys and girls races in a five-team meet Wednesday, Oct. 4, at Arlington’s River Meadow Park, but it wasn’t enough to lift the Wildcats to team victories.

Twelfth-ranked Arlington also won the girls meet, tallying 36 points and outdistancing Mount Vernon (57), Oak Harbor (70), Mariner (76) and Cascade (119).

Oak Harbor (36) did win the junior varsity boys race over Arlington (45), Mount Vernon (51) and Mariner (107). There was no girls JV race.

Oak Harbor’s Dallas Riddle-Stevens (17:17.4) and Tyler Grehan (17:20.1) finished 1-2 in the boys race, but Arlington placed five runners in the top 10 to take the team win.

In the girls race, Wildcat Alex Smith (19:44.7) took the crown, and her sister Megan Smith (21:0.4) finished fifth.

Josh Stone (19:14.34), Dylan Sanchez (19:34.1), John Pope (19:35.2) and Micah Franklin (19:39.9) placed fourth through seventh to power the Wildcats to the JV boys win.
