Entering Pacific high school cross country’s postseason, a Matthew C. Perry junior, Owen Young, continues to hold the region’s fastest 5-kilometer time, clocking 16 minutes, 25 seconds in Saturday’s race at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni. He transferred from Zama before the season.

Right behind him at 16:32.9 is Nile C. Kinnick senior Akimanzi Siibo, who posted that time during Saturday’s Kanto Plain race at Tama Hills Recreation Center’s 5-K lower course.

And remaining unbeaten on Okinawa was Kadena senior Trevor Williams, who was timed in 16:39.7 in a 5-K race on Kadena Air Base.

Kanto international school runners will chase Pacificwide honors in the Asia-Pacific Invitational next weekend on Guam, while district finals in Japan, Okinawa and Korea will be held the next two weekends.
