This has been an exciting cross country season in Alaska’s Interior, and some of the best individuals and teams in the state are from Fairbanks and nearby communities. Most of the top runners here have strong backgrounds as skiers. Last weekend four young athletes (a freshman and three sophomores) who trained with FAST over the summer asserted their presence at the Interior Regional Championships.
Lathrop has been the top boys team in the region both this year as well as last season. But on Saturday, West Valley broke through and placed five in the top seven. Here are the four!
But not to be totally outdone by the “older” peers, the newest FAST members Sam and Tristan dominated the middle school circuit this fall, going 1,2 in all races and winning each race by a large margin.
