A great time was had by the Union Mine cross country team and coach Jay Aliff when the group traveled to Honolulu, Ha., for the Iolani Invitational Sept. 17.

Besides running, the athletes spent a morning at Pearl Harbor. A number of the athletes had relatives who served in World War II and Durand and Quinn Smiley found their great uncle’s name on a plaque on the Eternal Patrol area of the memorial.

The group toured Honolulu and after the race the runners enjoyed an afternoon snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. The final day was spent learning to surf.

The varsity boys finished eighth and the girls took fifth in the 32-team field. Kevin Ralphs clocked the best time of the meet and sophomore Will Winter took 10th in the junior varsity race to earn the only Union Mine medal.

After nursing a sore kneee for three weeks prior to the meet, Michelle Gonzales turned in the girls’ fastest time.

Varsity boys: 45-Kevin Ralphs, 18:23.37; 48-Mitch Woods, 18:27.59; 78-Cory Gutierrez, 19:39.72; 87-Colton Aliff, 20:08.98; 91: Jon Michael Green, 20:32.67; 96-Shane Wise, 20:42.89.

Junior varsity: 10-William Winter, 18:48.74; 22-Durand Smiley, 19:33.37; 29-Quinn Smiley, 19:56.82.

Varsity girls: 29-Michelle Gonzales, 21:35.47; 45-Chloe Hood, 22:21.09; 56-Mikaelyn Praker, 22:55.17; 68-Madi Aliff, 23:44.28; 78-Sequoia Williams, 24:18.42; 80-Emily Trujillo, 24:36.42; 84-Marissa Indgjer, 24:57.78.

Junior varsity: 78-Jordan Caldwell, 26:29.89
