The Federal Way School District had another solid cross country season. Both the boys and girls teams at Jefferson rolled through the South Puget Sound League South Division without a blemish and four individuals, along with the entire six-girl Raider team, ran at last months Class 4A state championships in Pasco.
Jefferson sophomore Hilorie Hildebrandt earned all-state honors with a 17th place finish at the state meet and headlines the 2003 All-City cross country teams. Hildebrandts Raider team earned a trophy at the state meet by finishing up in seventh place. Jessica Schroeder, Chelsea Dier and Natalie Jarvey, who were key parts in Jeffersons season, also earned places on the All-City team.

Decaturs Shaun Helm was the only other boy runner at the state meet finishing up in 61st.
