Nate cruised to 32nd place in all of the Western US! Keli was in the top 150. Pelon placed 9th in the Junior Boys race to bring home a medal. Ivan, Sam and Jose also ran well in their races. Coach Ibarra got smoked in the coaches race but had fun :). Great job guys!!





With our 4th place finish, the team made history with the highest placing ever at the State Meet!
Nathan almost pulled the upset of the meet with 2nd place in 15:24 running a 16 second PR for the course!! The amazing part is that he was literally at the doctor's friday!
Keli ran superb in 17th with a 24 second PR at 16:07! Eric capped a great carrer with a solid 15 second PR at 16:36.  The rest of the gang was Ivan at 17:00, Danny at 17:04, Pelon at 17:10 and Mike at 17:25.  Jose was the hero of the meet as he stepped down with the flu and let someone run in his spot. 
Despite several of the guys being ill, the team still managed 4th in the STATE!!
WOW, What a year!!!!

What a weekend! Most of the team started it off by running great at the Chieftain Meet. The JV team won with our "C" team and the Varsity was 3rd with our real "B" team!! Great job to all. Ivan Alfaro paced the crew with a fine 17:08 for a top 10 Varsity finish!
Our "A" team headed south and well, they tore it up! Running pretty tired (hard week of training) and holding back, they still cruised to a 7th place finish among the elite teams in California. We were the only small school in the top 15!!!
Nate led the way to a breakthrough 14:46 good for 8th in cruise control! 5 guys under 16:00 wrapped the team scoring and we're right on track to our ultimate goal...
