Strength in numbers, strength in talent.

The Coupeville Middle School cross country squad trekked to Lakewood Wednesday for a seven-team meet, bringing along a full team and placing eight runners in the top 20, four girls and four boys.

Ayden Wyman claimed top honors for the Wolf girls during the 1.7 mile race, notching 11th place, while Cole White led the CMS boys, hitting the tape in 14th place.

That capped a busy day in which the Wolf harriers shared a bus with the CMS boys soccer squad, then arrived to find the course in Lakewood had been altered from last year.

Whether they were familiar with the course or not, the Coupeville runners made their coach proud.

“The boys ran beautifully … that number five spot is still up for grabs,” CMS cross country guru Elizabeth Bitting said. “The girls had a few new faces run. They all ran very strong!”

While she’s always tracking times and places, the Wolf coach especially enjoys seeing her young athletes make a mark in society, as well.

“The highlight of the day was being told that one of our runners (Gabe Reed), after he finished, he turned around, ran back on the course and started cheering on the runner behind him!,” Bitting said.

“Sportsmanship at its finest!!!”
