Trevor Hickerson and Calia Sieh both walked away with gold medals this past weekend and helped carry the Kotzebue Junior High School cross country teams to team victories at the Noorvik Cross Country Invitational.

Backed by Hickerson's winning run, the Huskies edged out Noorvik for the top spot by one point. Kotzebue finished with 17 points. Noorvik tallied 18.

Hickerson posted an easy win in the boys' division. He completed the course in a time of 20 minutes and 37.5 seconds. Noatak's Robert Shelson was second, more than a minute behind Hickerson.

Bryton Gregg led Kiana's efforts at the meet by taking third at 21:52.4. Noorvik's Tyrone Coffin was fourth.

The Huskies also collected solid outings from Gabe Stalker (7th), Xavier Jones (9th) and Marvin Lee (11th). Ethan Roetman and Tom Miller added to the Huskies' dominance by taking 12th and 13th, respectively.

Like Hickerson, Sieh had little trouble winning the girls' crown. She finished the race with a time of 24:50.0 and edged out teammates Alanna Conwell and Cassidy Kramer for the top spot.

Conwell was second at 25:56.9, while Kramer netted third at 26:14.9.

Alyssa Scheaffer gave Kotzebue four spots in the top 10 racing to 10th in the standings.
