Nathan Hale comes in at No. 19 on national XC poll

In this week’s National Top-25 High School Cross Country Poll from Saucony Elite, the Nathan Hale boys made the list at No. 19.

Gig Harbor (No. 5) and North Central (No. 14) are the only other teams from Washington state on the list. Kamiakin is the one team from Washington state on the watch list.

Last week, the Nathan Hale boys took first place at the Metro League championships.

Andrew Foerder (15:33.08), Max Leach (15:45.15) and Stuart Smith (15:50.54) helped Nathan Hale to a 33-point lead over second-place Seattle Prep.

Foerder, Leach and Smith went 2-3-4 behind nationally-ranked runner Joe Hardy of Seattle Prep.

Nathan Hale coach Cary Stidham said the boys set an all-time course record at Lower Woodland with the fastest varsity average.

Their performance at last weeks’ Metro League championships helped turn heads on a national level.

Nathan Hale will move on to the District meet Thursday at Lake Sammamish State Park.
