Prussian, Demmert Lead Sitka to Division II Region V Cross-Country Titles

    Sitka junior Silas Demmert, shown in an early season meet at Juneau, won the Region V Division II Boys Cross-Country Championship at Sitka's Totem Park on Monday.

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Sitka High School won the Division II Region V Cross-Country Championships on Monday, sweeping both the girls and boys team and individual crowns behind juniors Anna Prussian and Silas Demmert.

      Monday’s races had originally been scheduled at Ketchikan over the weekend but weather prevented Sitka from arriving and Mt. Edgecumbe opted not to race in the conditions on Ketchikan’s Ward Lake course.

      Since the Wolves and Braves are the only two teams in Southeast Region V Division II, the Alaska School Activities Association allowed them to race at their home Totem Park.

      The top team and top 10 individuals (in each boys and girls race) qualify for the ASAA First National Bank Alaska Cross-Country Running State Championships at Anchorage’s Bartlett High School Trails on Saturday, Oct. 9.
