From the Sideline

“Brian Martinez, junior, finished in the top 16 (at No. 14) to help his team win the 4A State Championship. Brian has been a strong competitor all season. He fought hard to stay with his teammate Ethan Martin who finished 10th and that led the Bears to a slim two point victory. Tahoma is the state XC boys champions! Go Bears!”
