The Selawik Lady Wolves' prowess showed on the cross country scene this past weekend with an eye-popping performance at the Shungnak Invitational Cross Country meet. The Selawik girls ran their way to the top four positions in the girls' race.

Laura Ramoth led Selawik's efforts. She finished first in the high school girls' race by completing the 3.1-mile event in a time of 28 minutes and 15.58 seconds. Marjorie Hingsberger and Marie Ramoth placed second and third, while Jena Johnson finished fourth.

Like the Selawik girls, Shungnak owned the high school boys' division. Shungnak nailed down the top three spots in the race. Justin Custer won the boys' race with a time of 21:10.09. Teammates Jeremy Woods and Brennon Sun finished second and third, respectively.

Kiana proved to be the class of the middle school and elementary divisions. Kristin Jackson won the middle school girls' title, while teammate Joseph Barr won the boys' title. Cody Stein and Magan Barr won the boys' and girls' elementary races.
