Ruby Lindquist and her younger sister, Sadie, turned more than a few heads on Friday when they led the Seward High School girls’ cross country team to a victory at the Anchorage Christian School Dual Meet.

And they did it with pizzazz.

The Lindquist sisters raced their way to a 1-2 finish and helped the Seward girls claim six of the top 10 spots in the final standings. Overall, all 10 of the Lady Seahawks’ runners finished in the top 16.

A third-place finisher at last year’s state cross-country meet, Ruby Lindquist kicked off her 2017 season in memorable fashion. She sprinted to a winning time of 19 minutes and 57.80 seconds.

Her overall time was 1 minute faster than her sister, Sadie. The younger Lindquist posted a time of 20:57.30 en route to taking second.

ACS’ Tessa O’Hara placed third.

Emma Moore and Sophia Dow helped the SHS girls dominate the top five. Moore finished fourth overall with a time of 21:21.10. Dow finished fifth at 25:01.60.

Sophomores Ally Chriss and Kalista Rodriquez also legged out top 10 marks. Chriss placed eighth with a time of 26:19.10, while Rodriquez was ninth at 26:30.70.

Addie Nobles, Shiprah Brueckner, Madilyn Moore and Reanna Brewi also did well. A sophomore, Nobles placed 12th at 29:53.30. Brueckner, a junior, was 13th at 29:57.50.

Moore and freshman Brewi finished 15th and 16th, respectively, with times of 31:44.50 and 32:19.60.

The Seward boys’ team also turned in a stellar outing in Anchorage. The SHS squad finished second with a total of 40 points.

Zen Petrosius highlighted the Seahawks’ performance at the meet. The senior raced his way to a third-place finish in the boys’ division with a time of 17:58.60.

Freshman Max Pfeiffenberger and junior Steven Osborn also made top 10 finishes. Pfeiffenberger turned in a personal best of 18:35.80 and placed sixth. Osborn checked in at No. 8 with a time of 19:21.30.

Trey Ingalls, one of four freshmen running for SHS at the event, narrowly missed a top 10 finish. He posted a time of 19:54.90 and placed 11th.

Brendan McMurray and Cole Norcross rounded out Seward’s top 15 finishers. McMurray was 12th at 19:45.70 while Norcross checked in at No. 15 at 20:33.90.

Samuel Koster, Justin McMurray, Clayton Peterson and Joel Williams also participated in the meet. Koster, a freshman, took 16th at 20:52.00. McMurray and Peterson were 18th and 19th, respectively, with times of 22:08.40 and 23:55.90. Williams, a senior, was 22nd at 27:59.60.
