In 2011 these boys took 3rd, last year they took 2nd and last Saturday they dominated their way to an 81 point win to capture Hamilton High School's second boys state XC title!
What a special group of young men!
Anthony was the individual state champion! What a finish he had...followed the game plan perfectly and won going away. So proud of his discipline and passion. He was not going to be denied! Easton was a warrior holding on to 4th the entire race until the last 20 meters to finish in 5th. Cameron placed 10th, Karill placed 13th, Greg ran very well to place our number 5 runner in the top 20 at 19th! Even Kole and Tanner as our 6th and 7th runners helped build on the gap between us and second place Corvallis by placing in front of their 4 and 5 runners! The times were good, the day was perfect and our boys are champs! Enjoy the pics below. Thanks too for all of you that came to support us!

Anthony Interview (halfway)
This will be a hard group to replace, especially seniors Easton Albert, Anthony Schmalz, Greg Beck, Sam Parker and Adam Hanson. Quality kids. Leaders and unbelievable teammates...I couldn't be prouder. Looking forward to trying to defend our title with returners Karill, Cameron, Kole and tanner. Let's do it again boys. P.S. Our girls should be a top 3 team next year as well!! Congrats to them for placing 5th out of 20 teams...terrific season girls. God bless the Broncs!
