The Medical Lake program that began by getting a couple of feet inside the door nine years ago, and over the last half-dozen seasons has become a dominant force in high school cross country in Washington state, will try to defend their 2017 crown this Saturday, Nov. 3 at Pasco.

Using a gut-check finish where key runners overtook their opposition in the final 100 yards, the Cardinals earned a runner-up finish on the rainy fairways of the Chewelah Golf and Country Club and once again qualify a team to compete in the 1A state championships on yet another 5,000-meter golf layout, Sun Willows.

The state's top-ranked 1A team, Lakeside, literally ran away with the overall title with four out of the top six finishers for a 26-57 win over Medical Lake. The Cardinals edged Riverside's 60 points to earn the Northeast A League's second team berth.
