Junior high runners Amanda Jensen, Emily Herbig and Kaitlyn Surdyk lead a pack up the hill from Dyea, just behind Paige Hahn and the leaders from Haines. The junior hgh girls were not listed in the official race results, but the following weekend they won a meet in Juneau. JB

Cross-country future looks bright
A Skagway girls team and a local boy were top runners last weekend at a Juneau junior high cross-country meet.
Five Skagway girls placed in the top 10 of their race, which would have easily notched a team title. Paige Hahn was second in 16:30, Amanda Jensen fourth, 16:59; Emily Herbig sixth, 17:16; Kaitlyn Surdyk eighth, 17:32; and Kaylie O’Daniel 10th, 18:20.
Eighth grader Mickey Wilson won his race with a time of 14:54 over the 2.5-mile course, and Quinn Weber finished 16th in 16:59.
“The people in Juneau were quite impressed with these young kids,” said coach Gary Trozzo. “With another year under their belts, they will just get stronger as they get older. There’s a lot of promise and potential there.”
The focus turns back to the varsity this weekend and the Southeast Regionals in Ketchikan. After their home meet Sept. 9, the Panthers rested last weekend.
Senior Candi Ketterman will be vying for a record third straight trip to state for a Skagway girl, needing a top 10 finish in the small schools race this Saturday. Ketterman has been nursing a calf injury the past three weeks, and Trozzo says team members are keeping their fingers crossed that she can get her form back and pull it off.
