WARRENTON — The Astoria and Seaside cross country teams staged a good old-fashioned dual meet Wednesday afternoon at Cullaby Lake.

Some of the top runners did not take part, as the teams prepare for the upcoming district meet, Oct. 25 at Rood Bridge Park in Hillsboro.

The Fishermen and Gulls ran a 3,000-meter course, with Astoria sweeping the dual meet by scores of 20-43 for the boys, and 25-32 for the girls.

Seaside junior Luis Moreno won the boys’ race in 10 minutes, 13 seconds, with the next 10 spots belonging to the Fishermen. Anton Heinrich was Astoria’s top finisher, placing second in 10:35.

Astoria freshman Lindsay Riutta won the girls’ race in 12:31, followed by sophomore teammate Allyson Pritchard (12:37) and Seaside freshman Elise Seppa (12:47). Seaside sophomore Brooke Blakenhorn was fourth in 12:59.
