Ms. DelBENE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the 2013 Glacier Peak
High School girls cross country team. On November 9, the Grizzlies
repeated as 3A cross country state champions, and I would like to
congratulate them on their impressive achievement.
The Grizzlies' championship title is the result of the hard work and strong effort of the entire team. I would like to give special recognition to senior Megan Davis, the team's top finisher at the state competition this year. Megan finished 12th overall with a time of 19:00.13. Beyond Davis, the team's success came from the efforts of freshmen Heidi Smith and Natalie Church, sophomore Charlie Sevenants, juniors Katherine Dittmann and Haley Longstreth, and senior Samantha Northrop.
The Glacier Peak girls cross country team has a legacy of success. Since it was established in 2007, the team has never finished any lower than seventh at the state competition, including three state championships in the past four years.
The Grizzlies' impressive record of success is a testament to their incredible work ethic and the impressive coaching of Dan Parker. Coach Parker has provided the Grizzlies with the encouragement and training necessary for the team to continuously perform at such a high level of competition.
Again, I congratulate the Glacier Peak Girls Cross Country Team on all of their success. Their accomplishments and awards from this season are hard-earned and well-deserved.
