Anchorage Daily NewsAugust 25, 2012 

Kenai's Allie Ostrander blew away the girls' field Saturday at the Skyview Invitational cross-country meet in Soldotna, and Kodiak's Levi Thomet notched a narrow victory over teammate Cole Christiansen in the boys' race.

Ostrander finished the 5-kilometer race on the Tsalteshi Trails in 17 minutes, 37.6 seconds, more than a minute ahead of Service's Jenette Northey, who won the event last year.

Thomet finished the boys' 5-K in 16:11.7 to edge Christiansen by just 1.2 seconds.

Led by a fourth-place finish from Gilly Szweda-Mittelstadt, the Service boys won the team competition by 67 points over second-place Kodiak. Wasilla finished 10 points ahead of West to win the girls team competition. Mariah Burroughs led the way for the Warriors with a fifth-place finish.
