LSRC Cross Country men’s and women’s teams were back at it this past Saturday, competing at Club Northwest’s annual Emerald City Open at Lower Woodland Park in Seattle.

Conditions were sunny and humid, with little-to-no wind. The men’s race was fast and furious and while the other 6 teams outscored us, there were impressive performances and point scoring by each LSRC member on this very challenging course.
