Boys: There is a very good chance the 4A team title stays home with the West Central District for a fourth consecutive season. Camas was the surprise winner of the district meet last week, but this could come down to reigning state champion Tahoma and Bellarmine Prep, in search of its first 4A crown. … Led by senior Jacob Christner, there is little reason to believe North Central won’t extend its dominance in 3A to a state-record 11 consecutive team titles. ... Lincoln’s James Mwaura is the third-highest returning state finisher in 3A behind Ballard’s James Konugres and Mount Spokane’s Hayden Dressel, but at 15:07.1, Mwaura trails only Dressel (15:04.5) in time this season. … Who has been the best distance runner in the state this season? It has been Northwest’s Tibebu Proctor in 1A, the only teenager with a sub-15-minute mark (14:56.1). He has Rooks, the reigning 1B/2B champion, in his race this season. … Northwest Christian of Lacey’s Luke Schilter (15:05.5) has the third-fastest time overall in the state, and should capture his first 1B/2B title.
Girls: Kamiak’s Taylor Roe (4A; second-best state time of 17:21.6) and Holy Names Academy’s Jordan Oakes (3A; state-best 17:17.4) are the class of the state. It would be a major upset if both did not repeat as state winners in their respective classifications. Roe is vying to become the first 4A girl to defend her title since Camas’ Alexa Efraimson in 2013. … The Camas girls are attempting to become the first 4A school to three-peat since Gig Harbor (2005-07). The Papermakers won the WCD title last week. … If St. George’s Madison Ward repeats in 1B/2B, she will have two first-place showings and a pair of runner-up finishers for her career.
