2006 Cross Country

2006 Condor Cross Country

Four Time Defending MBL Champs!

Three CCS Titles in 5 years!!

82 Straight Dual Meet Wins!



December 2, 2006
Portland, Oregon

The top 20 teams in the nation qualify for this awesome race!
BUT, in 2006 they offered an "open" race for the first 30 teams to register and we jumped at the chance to run! The guys ran great and placed 14th in a very competitive environment with great teams, ankle deep mud, hay bales, freezing temperatures, long spikes, and very fast Kenyans!. Michael Machado and Antonio Dorado led the squad once again.

Congratulations to the Boys' and Girls' Cross Country teams as they competed in the State Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno. The girls made their 2nd state appearance and their first in 12 years. They improved on their 14th place finish in 1994 with a fantastic 11th place finish. They were led by freshman phenom Jovita Trujillo! She place 11th and missed all-state by 1 second! The boys made their 8th state appearance and qualified an incredible 5 years running. They placed 17th and were led by Antonio Dorado in 42nd at 16:40. The time moves him to 14th on the all-time NMC list. Congrats Condors!
