Congrats to Medical Lake boys' cross country team, coach

Congratulations to the Medical Lake boys’ cross country team. I’m proud of the total effort that coach Gene Blankenship and his assistant coaches put in with the team. All summer at 8 a.m. in the morning when I was going to work I would see Coach and his team meeting at the school to start their training.

Our young cross-country boys and girls athletes were willing to put in the extra hard work to achieve their goal- to bring home a state championship trophy.

When I went down to the school Saturday night to welcome them home with many other community supporters, I could see the happiness that was on the coaches and team’s faces while holding up their state championship trophy!

Coach Blankenship will be there again next year to watch you and your kids hold up a repeat! Be proud of yourselves for what you just accomplished, state champions.
