Islander Cross Country Head Coach George Green discusses his teams’ activities from last week.

“Saturday a little more than half of the Islander Boys’ and Girls’ Cross Country teams participated in the Cougar six-mile relay, that was co-hosted by Escondido High School and California State University, San Marcos.

“This has been a good early-season indicator for us, as each leg was only one and one-half miles long. When combined with a recent one and one-half mile time trial we had in Coronado, we now have a pretty good idea of how the team is shaping up; who is on track and who needs more base work. 

“The Girls placed second in the smaller of two divisions behind Cathedral Catholic and fifth overall. Since Cathedral is a CIF Division III school, we won’t see them at the CIF Finals at the end of the year. The Girls placed in front of all other Division III, Division IV, and Division V schools. Co-Captains Renee Phillips and Jasmine Rippey ran the lead-off and anchor legs for us, in that order, posting identical times of 8:53.  Chapin Miller-Maes had our third best time of the day clocking 9:13, followed by freshman Madden Hundley who ran 9:40.

In addition to the four girls mentioned above our Top 10 appears to be (in no particular order): Sydney Zoehrer, Charlotte Wampler, Natalya Gomez, Kerry Desmond, Katie Larratt, Gabriella Ryan, and Naya Tamariz. Okay, that totals 11 athletes, but a couple of those girls are pretty close.
“For the Boy’s Team, Captain Jason Leary, along with freshmen Luke Klingenberg and Spencer Busby, posted our best times with all three athletes running 8:05. A Top 10 listing for the Boys includes: Cole Nichols, Charles Winn, Kenneth May, Patrick Harris, Karl Mulvehill, Eric Schnell and Jacob Blauser.  Although he hasn’t run a time trial or race yet because of a broken toe that’s now healed, Ian Hurlburt has recently been training with our top three runners and figures to be right up front for the rest of the season.”
