Get to know us

Medical Lake Cross Country and Track & Field have been a perennial powerhouse in the NEA League for the past 12 years. This all started when Gene Blakenship got the position of Head Cross Country coach and subsequently Head Track Coach in the following school year. His dedication to the program is a big factor in our success and he is an inspiration to many.
