This has been a long time coming.

Long enough that none of the current Coupeville High School cross country runners were alive the last time it happened.

In their second year back in the sport, after a two-decade absence from competition, the Wolf boys claimed a team title Saturday in Shoreline.

Running at the 13th annual King’s Roller Coaster Trail Run, Coupeville nipped Cascade Christian to capture first-place in the three-mile JV race.

The Wolves, who were led by freshmen Mitchell Hall and Aidan Wilson, who finished 3rd and 6th in the individual competition, racked up 68 points, two fewer than the runner-ups.

Chelan, King’s, Rainier Christian, Marysville-Pilchuck, Orcas Island, Bear Creek, Bellevue Christian, and Blaine rounded out the JV field.

On the girls side, the Wolves finished 5th in the varsity race, with King’s winning the team title.

First-year CHS coach Luke Samford headed back to the bus with a spring in his step after watching his young crew hit new heights.

“The boys ran better than ever at this one!,” he said. “I was very impressed how each of them stepped up individually, and ran well as a team.

“The women had a great day as well,” Samford added. “Again, great execution across the board. These next few weeks I’m excited to see the continued growth.”
