Glendora Cross Country - No Fear  No Pain  No Defeat

Mt SAC Invite – The Results

Mt SAC.  Home of the cowbell.  Every race winner gets one.  Bringing one home to Glendora, while possible, would have been a tall order this weekend.  We ran against the top competition in the state – including ranked D1 and D2 teams from our section, the rest of the state and even a few schools from out of state.  We like to compete against the best.

You expected Ferrell and Walken?

 

This is where the home stretch toward the post-season begins.  We see where we stack up against our D2 competition and maybe what we need to work on for the last few weeks.  The good news is that we probably justified our rankings.  The great news is that there’s room for improvement… and we’re improving!

We’ll recap in the order we raced:

 

 

JV Boys

  • Team took 13th of 27

Varsity Girls Sweepstakes

  • Team took 12th of 20, with just 4 Southern Section D2 teams ahead of them
  • Official team time of 96:01 was just 0:04 off our Course record – but at least one coach (from another school) suspects the official timing was problematic (Glendora’s inexperienced and occasionally accurate hand timing team had our varsity girls at 95:44 (that would have been a CR)
  • Top 50s from Cori Harral (32) and Emily Hoey (46)
  • Complete race results HERE

All Time Top Ten (we actually go to 15 and track Frosh Top Ten at MSAC – it’s just that important)

  • Savannah Yi stamped her name on the Frosh List at #10
  • Cori Harral improves to #4, Alyssa Perez and Taylor Butler debut at 8 and 15 respectively (I know, #15 on the Top Ten isn’t logical, just go with it)
  • Jeff Kirwin (3) improves his time by a few seconds and is joined by Parker Seale (T8)

Athletes of the Meet

Richard Johnson - He not only puts in the quality work and effort to perform his best, he exemplifies the captain’s role by ensuring his teammates have everything they need to be successful
