It was a night where the team's lone suited-up senior, Austin Hamllik, was honored before playing his last game in front of the hometown fans. The Wolves, however, faced an uphill challenge trying to first down that moved the ball to Granger's 16, but the offense stalled and turned the ball over on downs. It didn't take long for Granger to get going. Artega picked up 79 yards on his first carry and the Spartans scored less than a minute later. Granger scored again early in the second to go up 14-0, butit looked like Gol- dendale would bounce back on the next possession.

She fin- ished the three-mile race last Thursday in 21 min- utes, 48.7 seconds for 18th place among the field of 51 runners. "Even more amazing though, she hasn't been running to her full poten- tial," Rising said. "There was enough on the line that she was able to make the jump." Her previous best time on a three-mile course came last year at the Apple Ridge course, but was able to cut nearly a minute from that time on Thursday Joining the re- Cord-breaking day with Ross was Smith, who finished 10th with a new personal record time of 20:59.5, and Chestnut, also setting a personal record (20:21.2) while finishing sixth.

"Especially with five girls," Juli Rising said. "We get to these meets and here's our little Fab Five. And to see them go out and win the whole thing, it's a testament to how hard they worked." "The other nice thing about having a team is when you have a team it's easier to make it," Ellie Rising said. "You have people, around, you that are supporting you and going through it with you and when you're out by yourself it's not really fun at all." "It's amazing to have all of us herebecause if one of us got sick or if one of us left for one meet we " wouldn't have a team," Chestnut said. "We kind of run for each other," Hedges added.
