Alaska Wildfires Change Plans for Unalaska Raider Runners
The Unalaska Raider Cross Country team started off their season this last weekend with a little bit of confusion. The Raiders were originally scheduled to attend the Tsalteshi Invite in Soldotna but found out on the morning of travel which was Friday that it was cancelled due to the wildfires on the peninsula.
Chugiak Coach Brian Kruchoski was able to put together a last minute race for all of those teams that were planning on attending the Tsalteshi Invite. The Unalaska Raider Boys Cross Country team competed against a predominantly 4A field and placed 10th overall.
The boys were led by senior Mike Pereat with a time of 18:22. He was followed closely by his younger brother Jonathane Pereat with a time of 19:12. After that sophomore Herwin Riodil finished in a time of 19:41, freshmen Eldred Paradeza finished in a time of 22:06, freshmen Kc Balbarino finished in a time of 23:21 and senior Maverick Castillo finished in a time of 23:52. Next up the Raiders will travel to the State Preview this upcoming weekend on August 31st.
