ILH CROSS COUNTRY: ILH Cross Country starts up


This writer was looking forward to the varsity girls matchup of Iolani and Punahou. But, it didn't happen as Punahou elected to run the varsity in the open 2 mile race. This left the girls varsity to Iolani and Maryknoll who placed most of their runners in the top 20. The Maryknoll girls took 1st, 6th, 8th, 10th and 18th. The Iolani girls took 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th and 20th. When Punahou joins the fray and Kamehameha starts running hard, I expect things to change quite a bit. The girls varsity looks to be the most exciting in recent history.
On the boys side, 5 different teams took the 1-5 places, HBA, MPI, St. Louis, Kamehameha and Iolani. But, it was only Kamehameha and Iolani that could place 5 runners in the top 20. Kamehameha took 4, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Iolani placed 5, 6, 11, 13 and 20. At this point it certainly looks like a two team race, but as everyone knows, it's a long season and things can change by States.
