WEST SEATTLE, Wash. – Under sunny, dry conditions a small contingent of Geoducks faced the cross country world at the Sundodger Invite. Les Jones (Tacoma, Wash./Mount Tahoma HS) and Aaron Jones (San Bruno, Calif./Capuchino HS) led the Geoducks off the line, with Les taking a far more aggressive start (5:01, first mile) than Aaron (5:35). Les’s lead over Aaron would grow through two miles (10:36 to 11:12), before Aaron slowly chipped away with steady 5:45 miles over the last three miles. Closing to within 10m with 400m to go, Aaron was unable to catch him as Les stormed away to finish in 28:12, just ahead of Aaron (28:19). Les finished 166th and Aaron 172nd in the field of 236 runners.
