Warrenton's Cross Country team came in second at the 3A/2A/1A district championships on Tuesday.

The competition was hosted by Southwest Christian School and held at Wildcat Trail in South Beaverton.

“We are trying to make history today as the first Warrenton team to qualify for state cross country,” Coach Josh Fry said before the meet. By the end of the day, they’d achieved their goal.

Forrest Cooley, the boys’ captain, came in third overall; Zander Moha, sixth, Indy Freyer, eighth, Abby Miller, the women’s captain, 11th; Doc Freyr, 12th; Eric Cooley, 17th; Nathan Streibeck, 21st; and Julian Whitsett, 22nd.

The team had won four out of five previous matches, finishing first overall in their league. Abby Miller finished second overall for the girls.

“Our motto, ‘The harder we work the luckier we get,’ has worked well for us this season,” Fry said.

They’re now preparing for the state championships April 10.

But first, they’ll head to the Rainier Invitational on Thursday, April 1; the Seaside Ridge Relays on Saturday, April 3.
