ARLINGTON — Kate Laurent was hoping for a career-best time for 5,000 meters on Saturday and she got much more than that.

The Ellensburg senior clocked 17 minutes, 31 seconds for seventh place in the elite flight at the 39th Hole in the Wall Invitational at Lakewood High School. She not only slashed over a minute off her previous 5K best of 18:33, set on the same course two years ago, but she broke the school record by 19 seconds.

Laurent trailed only 4A runners from Washington and Oregon in the 100-team field and had the top 2A time by 17 seconds.

Eisenhower’s Isabela Alvarado and Hannah Hilton ran career-best times of 18:07 and 18:34, respectively, and the Cadets had three other girls under 20 minutes.

Selah’s Cooper Quigley ran 15:10 to miss his personal best of 15:06 set two weeks ago but he placed fifth behind three Oregon runners and was easily the top 2A finisher.

James Crabtree of Sherwood, Oregon, ran 14:45 to break Jonas Price’s 2019 course record. Another Oregonian, Chloe Foerster of Jesuit, was the girls winner in 17:01.

At the 52nd Max Jensen Invite in Richland, West Valley’s Caden Casteel (15:23) and Skye Stenehjem (18:22) turned fast three-mile times for a pair of top-10 finishes. WV’s girls tied for third in the fast flight.
