Floyd Dryden Middle School sixth grader Makenna Graham topped the girls’ field and Dzantik’i Heeni eighth grader Mitchell McDonald led the boys in the final DZ/FD cross-country dual meet of the season last week at DZ.
Graham posted an 11-minute 44-second time over the 3K course while McDonald hit 11:15.
Travel restrictions and miscommunications between the two middle schools and local charter schools resulted in the Wolverines and Eagles competing in a separate event from Juneau Charter School and Montessori Borealis, who ran at Sandy Beach.
Graham finished nearly a minute faster than her closest competitor, DZ seventh grader Nikki Box (12:32) and FD classmate Reece Bleakley (12:33).
McDonald was in a sprint to the finish with DZ classmate Josh Rivers (11:16) and DZ underclassman Greyson Liebelt (11:17).
