The cross country team ran hard at the very challenging Brea Invite. The course is 5 km (a little longer than the usual 3 mile race). It runs through thick spongy grass, cement, dusty trails, and over two substantial hills.
The day started strong as Jesse Chinchilla ran the fastest race of his career and earned his first medal! Marissa Doria, Lauren DeLoss, and Patrick Pinckney also medaled.
Marissa and Lauren were the top two finishers for the girls, followed by freshmen Samantha Avila and Brenna Lord, then Jessica Briney, Sofia Glynn, and Madison Richardson.
The top boys were Mauricio Castillo, Patrick, Carlos Bonilla, Jordan Sanguino, Kameron Hyden, Danny Windham, and Ruben Fierro.
This was the last race before our second league meet, which is on October 10th at Andulka Park in Riverside. The Wildcats are looking to improve their standing from league meet #1.
