Foster senior Alem Belete finished her high-school  cross-country career with a 10th place finish at the state meet in Pasco.

And she did so with a personal-best time of 19:21.37 for the 5,000-meter race. She won the SPSL 2A sub-district meet with a time of 19:25.05.

Belete was the top girls finisher from the Seamount League in the state meet. The girls team from Renton's Lindbergh High School placed fourth overall and the Lindbergh boys place sixth overall.

Belete was the only Foster runner at the state meet.

She placed second Nov. 2 in the Westside Classic district cross-country tournament at American Lake and won the Seamount League cross-country championship.
