George Green, Islander Cross Country Head Coach provides the details of the last regular season event for his teams, which was held last week. “Typically the last CHS fall sport standing is Cross Country. This season will be no different, with the Western League Finals Thursday, the CIF San Diego Section Finals Nov. 23 and the California State Meet Nov. 30.

“Last Thursday we had our final Western League cluster meet at Morley Field. All varsity races were at a distance of 3.11 miles over the City Conference Cross Country Course. This was also the last meet of the season for our JV teams. Several of our runners posted personal records with sophomore Landon Mullins our first finisher with a 35-second personal record time of 16:40. His brother, Cole Mullins, was our second finisher with a respectable time of 17:01 considering he wasn’t running at 100 percent due a nagging injury he sustained while winning a varsity race at Mt. SAC Oct. 26. Our third runner was Casey Harris with a personal record of 17:23. Aiden Baumann, Cole Hutcherson, Gio Navarro, Micah Arnott, and Will Leonard followed in a pack with times ranging from 18:42 to 18:55. This group of Boys will run in the League Finals Thursday, with the top seven out of that race going on to the CIF San Diego Section Championships.

“Our top finisher for the Girls was Abigail Hundley, who finished third overall with an 11-second personal record of 19:37. Sofia Van Arsdale was our next finisher with a time of 19:48, followed by Dana Jennings, Anna Youngblood, and Ryan Brophy to finish out the scoring.

“In the team scoring, the Boys finished fourth behind Cathedral Catholic, Scripps Ranch, and University City. The Girls finished third behind Cathedral and Scripps.”
