Cross country: The Eagles cross country team got off to a flying start at the KingCo Jamboree Class Race on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at Lake Sammamish State Park. Both the boys and girls teams competed only against runners in their grade level. The two-mile-long race provided runners with a shorter race to start the season.

Several Issaquah runners put up good times at the jamboree. In the junior girls race, Issaquah’s Julia David-Smith finished first with a time of 10:47.30. Darwin Hanson finished second in the girls 10th-grade race with a time of 12:13.10. In the boys 9th-grade race, Liam Henninger placed second with a time of 10:19.20.
