A big day for our boys Varsity team, probably the best single day our team has had, maybe ever. Our team time of 81:47 (for the first five finishers) appears to be a new Sierra League course record.
We placed four in the top five and had six of the first eleven scoring only 22 points with Ayala, our nearest rival, coming in at 48. The Daily Bulletin paper covered the meet (from Ayala’s perspective): “Ayala Has Catching Up to Do“. You can view the paper’s photo album from the meet here.
Our top four performers, Anthony Castro, Austin Goodheart, Austin Mendoza and Kelly Hernandez all had performances that rank in the eleven best All-time for GHS on this course, and our numbers five and six, Neill Netzeband and Shin Yamamura, both PR’d.
On the girls side, we were missing two of our top five, but junior Allison Mayo stepped up to lead us with a 20:48 effort, an improvement of almost three minutes from this meet last year, and a time that ranks just outside our All-Time Top 10.
Allison was not the only one to make a commitment to training and make a big improvement. We also saw big drops from Nick Orozco (2:29), Jon-Carlo Nunez (2:08), Chris Shaffer (1:59), with the biggest coming from Christina Villalobos, who knocked a whopping 4:03 from last year’s time. Hard work pays off.
