Over the weekend the Cross Country Team ran at the Brea Invitational. The course was very challenging because there were some big hills. Nathan Vallejo did medal by placing 18th overall.
The race was worth it though because it helped prepare our kids for yesterday’s race at Webb, which should be one of the longer, more challenging courses that of this year. In our first meet back in September, Southlands came in fourth place overall in the boys’ varsity race. Today, Southlands came in 3rd place behind Webb and Samueli, just missing 2nd place by a few points. A few more weeks of training and the Cross Country Team should be ready for league finals and compete with Webb and Samueli.
- Nathan took first by 1:30 over 2nd place
- Isaiah Robles placed 10th (his best race)
- Oscar Wu placed 18th
- Ray Lara – 27th (his best race)
- Nick Chau – 29th
Crystal Cervantes and Mariane Jo ran for the girls’ team.
The Cross Country Team has another meet on October 20th and then League finals November 2nd.
Nathan Vallejo will be running up in Fresno at Woodward Park this Saturday.
