Boys and Girls Cross Country Head Coach George Green provides the results and updates for his team from last week. “We took nearly the full Boys and Girls Cross Country teams to the Bronco Round-Up, hosted by Rancho Bernardo High School at Kit Carson Park last Saturday.

“The Round-Up is the last of the short cross-country races of the season and is used by most of the top teams to assess the fitness of their runners. The distance is only two miles, but there isn’t a flat stretch anywhere on the course. After the first rolling mile, the course rises nearly 90 feet over the next quarter of a mile in a series of ups and downs with a grade of 15 per cent in some places. Our first Boy finisher was Cole Mullins, who completed the course with a time of 10:34. Casey Harris was next with 11:03 followed by Landon Mullins (11:08), Aiden Baumann (11:52), Gio Navarro (12:03), Cole Hutcherson (12:12), Nolan Reuter (12:16), Micah Arnott (12:20), Tim Shumaker (12:22), Will Leonard (12:30), Conor Youngblood, and Soren Donahue. I’m looking forward to seeing who will be on the Varsity seven-runner team at CIF, as there are several contenders after the first five runners.

“Abigail Hundley was our first Girl finisher over the same course with a time of 12:23. Freshman Dana Jennings was next for us in 12:41 followed by Jessica Ehret (13:05), Allison White, Anna Youngblood, and Ryan Brophy. 

“We have a two-week training break until our next meets, the Woodbridge Classic in Riverside and the Mt. Carmel Invite at Morley Field. We’ll split the team between the two meets as we can take only seven boys and seven girls to Woodbridge. The meets couldn’t be more different. Woodbridge runs at night at the Silverlake Sports Complex soccer fields and is flat and fast. Mt. Carmel uses the Footlocker National Championship course which is very hilly.”
