Edmonds-Woodway High School track and cross country athletes junior Miler Haller and senior Hailey Kettel were the top male and female finishers in Sunday morning’s Alki Beach 5K, benefiting Northwest Hope and Healing, a nonprofit that helps breast-cancer patients, our friends at the West Seattle Blog reported.
And just behind Hailey in second place was Kate Nishino, previously Kate Southcote-Want, a former EWHS cross country runner who is now the school’s assistant cross country coach.
Before the estimated 1,000 runners and walkers left the finish line, they heard a pep talk from eight-year cancer survivor Kristina Dahl. Pending official results online later, here are the top 3 men and top 3 women, per printouts provided at the start/finish line:
