Winning a high school cross country race is a big deal. Winning that race against competition like Summit of Bend and Central Valley of Washington is a really big deal!
Albert Hesse of Ridgeview took first place at the Mountain View XC Runoff on Saturday at Bend’s Pine Nursery Park. Among the racers he beat were 5A State Champions of Summit and Spokane’s Central Valley, who was 9th at last year’s Washington State championship.
Look for Hesse to be a major player in the 5A state meet this year!
