Vancouver-based Whisper Running had 35 runners compete at the USATF National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships on Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky.

Brody Will (Hudson’s Bay HS) placed 22nd in the Boys 15-18 Division, covering 5,000 meters in 17 minutes, 13.82 seconds. In placing five runners in the top 70, Whisper finished sixth out of 12 teams.

Whisper also placed sixth out of 43 teams in the Boys 13-14 Division. Payten Jones of Skyridge Middle School finished 60th, covering 4,000 meters in 13:13.59. Cooper Dollens (View Ridge MS) placed 70th as Whisper had four runners in the top 100 in a field of 448.

Thirty-four boys and one girl from Whisper qualified at the Junior Olympic regional meet in Idaho on Nov. 18. That’s the most in the history of the club, which was founded by Vancouver resident Dave Caldwell in 2016.
