Cross country

Announcing the athlete of the week winner

Hassan Ibrahim was already one of the top cross country runners in the state.

Now the Jefferson High School junior is establishing himself as one of the elite.

The junior who was the state runner-up as a sophomore ran a personal record of 15:55.2 to win the Silver Falls Oktoberfest Invitational, the No. 12 fastest time in the state through all classifications.

Ibrahim was selected the athlete of the week by a vote of readers on StatesmanJournal.com.

What’s also daunting is that the rest of Ibrahim’s family is making an impact, too.

Sophomore Abdi Ibrahim placed fourth (16:43) at the meet, senior Sulieman Ibrahim placed seventh (17:07) and freshman Ahmed Ibrahim placed eighth (17:10) and put the Lions in contention for the 3A/2A/1A state team championship.

Jefferson sophomore Hassan Ibrahim was selected as the athlete of the week in a vote by readers.
