LOWER WOODLAND PARK - The Bainbridge Spartans boys cross country team took fourth place in a meet Wednesday, Oct. 2, against runners from Seattle Preparatory, Eastside Catholic and Bishop Blanchet high schools at Lower Woodland Park.

Despite being short nearly 29 runners, some recovering from injury and some preparing for the upcoming qualifying invitation on Saturday, Oct. 5, many of the Bainbridge runners came away with new personal best times.

"Of the 40 boys racing today, many ran their fastest time for this course," said Spartan Head Coach Anne Howard Lindquist.

The Spartan top finishes were Noah Strevell (19:08), Charlie Hanacek (19:18), Johan Griesser (19:25), Will Gleason (19:56), Harry Brelsford (19:57), Ben Scott (20:01) and Cole Garthwaite (20:05).
