We did it! We pulled off a safe, fun, and fast season. I am immensely proud of the positive attitudes, perseverance, and dedication our athletes demonstrated these past 5 weeks. After our final race with Skyline, where both the boys and girls team won, we had a total of 37 PRs for our team. That means 55% of our team ran their fastest races ever this season, amazing. It was a privilege to be your coach this season. Skyline Race - a course with some rolling hills, pedestrian obstacles, and an uphill finish. Our teams ran tough and we saw some great hill technique and strong finishes. In the girls’ race, Julia David Smith was 4/4 on first place finishes this season.
Darwin Hanson continued to drop time each race and was a strong 3rd place finish.
Our freshman, Jane Harig, impressed us each week with her grit and finished 5th overall.
Julia Ryan, Anna Jensen, Eliza Fuhs, and Julia Wood rounded out the rest of varsity with strong 6th, 8th. 9th and 10th place finishes.
The boys’ race exhibited the top 5 working together to finish within 43 seconds of each other. Alec Barran 2nd, Jerry Imai-Takemura 3rd, Jonathan Liu 5th, Brennen Rickey 6th, and Josh Delgadillo 7th.
Hunter Scheppat passed a Skyline runner on the HILL to finish in 9th for the team
Josh Geisser was close behind in 12th place. The ‘fun’ track workouts and teamwork once again paid off with an impressive race.
