The Stars and the Mariners took a firm hold of Saturday’s Homer Spit 5-kilometer high school run, which runs the length of the famed Homer Spit.

The Homer girls edged out SoHi by five points, led by Molly Mitchell in second place. The Mariner girls took four of the top six places, with Megan Pitzman, Aurora Waclawski and Alex Mosley helping the home team to the team title.

Soldotna junior Olivia Hutchings ran away with the girls race, beating Mitchell by a sizable margin of 46 seconds to win with a time of 18 minutes, 4.1 seconds. Teammate Dani McCormick added a third-place effort for the Stars.

Soldotna senior Daniel Shuler won the boys race with a time of 17:00.1, topping Homer’s Jordan Beachy by nearly 17 seconds. The Homer and Soldotna boys tied in the team race with 28 points apiece.

Both schools will travel to Kodiak for Saturday’s region III cross-country championships.
