CIF Results

Yes, it’s late.  But word of mouth is fairly reliable (at least when it comes to race results) and besides, the coverage was out there if you really wanted it.

 

Nevertheless, here are the results of the last two events on the GHS XC calendar.

 

On November 10, the boys and girls varsity teams competed in the CIF Southern Section Prelims at Mt SAC.  The girls TIED with Thousand Oaks for 4th place in their heat.  Since only four teams advance to the finals, the 6th runner would decide which team advanced.  TO won by about 5 spots, reminding us again that EVERY RUNNER COUNTS.  Our girls were the closest non-qualifiers.  Our girls fought hard and deserve high fives all around.

The boys claimed 4th in their heat and advanced to the SS finals.

Individual achievements on the day included a few changes to the ALL TIME TOP TEN

  • Mike Duke climbed to 5th
  • Megan Trono improved to 10th
  • Chloe Arriaga moved to 14th

 

One week later, the boys arrived back at Mt SAC to compete for a spot in the State Finals at Woodward Park in Clovis.  For the second time in three years, the finals were contested over the rain course.  For those new to the sport, this is a huge disappointment – competing at Mt SAC is all about running the traditional course.  Even though the rain course is flatter and faster, it’s not the challenge that draws us to cross country.  But we control neither the weather nor the course, so we run where they tell us to run.  Despite their best efforts, the boys finished 13th in their heat and the season ended as abruptly as this entry.

End of Season Banquet (this is important)

We know you have all looked at the Banquet Evite, but have been too shy to respond :)

Please RSVP to the Evite with your athlete’s name and number of guests (ie.  Super GHS XC Bolt athlete plus Mom, Dad and Grandma = 4 for the banquet $40 plus $5 for Coaches = $45)

A simple yes to the banquet does not help us with the food count, and we all know you want to eat.  

 

This week  - Thursday and Friday – Mrs Reyes will be outside the Athletic Office near the parking lot collecting checks for the banquet.  Please don’t make her stand there by herself.  Drop by with a check and say “HI”

Mrs Butler will be at the back gate on Palopinto on Friday after school to collect banquet checks if you do not want to leave your lunch buddies.  

 

RSVP’s and monies are due this Friday – rememeber there is no school next week!!!

Thanks

Baseline League Finals – The Results

With both team and individual league titles on the line, the Tartans returned to Mt SAC for the third time this year.  Top three varsity teams advance to CIF-SS Prelims on November 10 (at Mt SAC… again) and Top Ten individuals are awarded all-league honors.  By the way, we compete in a strong league, against all Division 1 schools.  You’ll never hear the coaches or athletes use that as an excuse, and they shouldn’t.  And while I suspect it actually brings out the best in our athletes, let’s take just a moment to acknowledge that it’s kind of a big deal.

 

 

 

There.
