Rising, Gannon finish one-two at Goldendale course


Andrew Christiansen

IN CHARGE: Dillon Rising sprints up the ninth fairway at Goldendale Golf Club to win the 5K.

Dillon Rising ran the 5K in Goldendale as if he owned the course last week and of course it was a home meet for the Timberwolves, but on a different venue from where they practice. Rising and Bickleton's Andrew Gannon set the pace for the field and turned in the only times under 18 minutes. Rising finished in 17:09 and Gannon came through the finish chute in 17:59.

Wahluke's Eduardo Valdenea was third, but the next four runners were all from Connell, running 11 seconds apart which gave them the team win. Just seven seconds behind the Connell runners was the rest of the Goldendale team with Michael Jagelski eighth in 19:15, Mykhail Lembke ninth in 19:48, Ricky Shurtleff 10th in 20:03 and Lucas Anderson 11th in 20:05. Will Bostick finished in 20:48 and Blake Best crossed the finish line in 24:20.

Second for Bickleton was Michael Gannon in 20:41. Henry Pond ran the course in 22:09 and Joseph Cummings was timed at 22:58.
