Keeping the pace

Jameson Dankowski, pictured here at the Viking Opener at Spring Lake, turned in a great effort in a dual cross country meet with visiting Montgomery on Oct. 23. The Running Dogs will wrap up the league season at the NBL finals at Spring Lake on Friday.

The North Bay League cross country schedule was among the many sports altered by the Kincade Fire and evacuations last week, forcing the Greyhounds to cancel their scheduled Oct. 30 league meet at Hoot Owl Creek Vineyards with Maria Carrillo.

Later, league officials decided that all cross country meets canceled due to the fire would not be made up. Instead, teams in the NBL Oak Division will wrap up league competition at the NBL finals on Friday, Nov. 8 at Spring Lake in Santa Rosa at 2 p.m.

Hounds wrap up regular season

Picturesque Hoot Owl Creek Vineyards was the venue when the Greyhounds played host to visiting Montgomery in what proved to be the North Bay League regular season finale on Oct. 23. 

Although the Vikings used their strength and depth to post a clean sweep in all team categories, the Hounds did boast some of the top individual performances of the afternoon.

While Montgomery narrowly defeated the Greyhounds in the varsity boys competition (24-33), Healdsburg had just two female runners in the girls race.

The event was contested just one day before the Kincade Fire swept through the Geyserville area, causing nearby evacuations and the closure of Highway 128.

At press time, widespread evacuations and the ongoing fire situation has forced the postponement of this week’s meet against Maria Carrillo.
