2008 Cross Country

Elia Trujillo unexpectedly passed away on Tuesday, December 9th, 2008. She is survived by her husband Jose and their four children Temo, Israel, Enoch, and Jovita.  All three of the boys are alumni of North Monterey County.  Temo is currently a teacher and a coach at the school and Jovita is a current student-athlete on the cross country and track teams as well as being the current ASB Commissioner of Pep and Athletics.

The Trujillo family has been a major part of North Monterey County High School and the cross country and track teams would like to host a fundraiser in Elia’s honor with proceeds to be used however the family wishes.  The Elia Trujillo Memorial Run will include the following;

Jovita Trujillo represented the Condors for a 3rd year in a row at State!

She had one of her better races of the year good for 77th place and ran a 19:52 for a full 5k.

Next year we take the teams once again and Jovita won't be lonely :).

Check out the coverage below!

Toro Park, Salinas
The teams put up gutsy efforts in the heat at CCS!
The girls placed 5th in a loaded Division III race and were led by Jovita Trujillo as she placed 6th and made 1st TEAM ALL CCS for the 3rd year in a row!  Although the ladies missed out on going to state for the 3rd year in a row, Jovita will represent the Condors very well!  And, Nadine Huerta just missed a state berth by a few seconds!
The Boys also faced stiff competition in Division III with some great state ranked teams.  The Condors placed 6th and had their 6 year streak of going to state broken.  The good news? The top 5 guys today are juniors! Miguel Gallegos led the way with a great 14th place finish only 2 spots out of a state berth.
