CONGRATULATIONS! West Seattle Road Runners girls headed to national championships

(WSB photo)

Congratulations and good luck to two teams from the West Seattle Road Runners – they are headed to the USATF National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships! Last night at Hiawatha, the girls (grouped as 7/8 year-olds and 9/10 year-olds) had their last practice before the trip to Reno. The 13 girls heading to the championships are coached by James Powell (pictured with the girls who were at last night’s practice) and Brandee Paisano.

    These girls can RUN!  I was at Hiawatha one evening and saw them running – so impressive!  It was dark and cold and they were doing awesome.  Good Luck!

    Great job Coach James and Coach Brandee!The girls may have the talent but it would be lost without your guidance and support, we trust you’ll all represent West Seattle well!!!

    Do you no longer cover basketball ?

    • WSB December 8, 2018 (8:13 pm)

      If you mean high-school basketball, we cover it every year, but generally not consistently until after winter break.
