when you thought Kodiak High School cross country star Trevor Dunbar couldn’t
get any better, he proves you wrong.
The Bears were in
Portland, Oregon Saturday for the Adidas Classic, where Dunbar finished first
overall with a new course record time of 14:47. Not only did Dunbar crush the
competition from Oregon, Washington and California schools, his time is the
fastest 5K race for any high schooler in the nation so far this season.
In a story on
cross country website Dyestat dot COM, Dunbar was typically humble, saying “Cross country is really not about time, it’s about
different courses and testing yourself against other guys. Still, it’s
awesome to have that as a stat. It gives a little more recognition, not
only to myself, but also my team and the whole state. It’s really
Other Bears runners had strong races as well. Sam Salus
finished seventh with a time of 15:44 and Dylan Anthony was ninth in 15:48.
Chaven Davidson, Corey Munk, and James Osowski finished 97th, 98th,
As a team Kodiak took fifth overall. Portland’s Jesuit High
School was first with its top five finishers going 10th, 11th,
12th, 13th, and 14th.
On the girls’ side, Chloe Ivanoff was the Bears top finisher
in 18:44, taking 10th overall. Christy Roe and Jenni Fried came in 90th and 91st with times of 21:31 and 21:34
Having only three girls at
the meet left the Lady Bears out of the team scoring competition. But all three
of Kodiak’s girls got new personal records.
Dunbar is a senior
and has been checking out colleges this fall. One school on his list is the
University of Oregon Ducks, currently the number one cross country
team in the nation.
