Cross Country sport shorts: Sanger Invitational

The Eagles’ varsity cross country team recently participated in the Sanger Invitational at Avocado Lake, Sept. 19.

Unlike the Kingsburg meet on Sept. 6, the meet had a regular five kilometer course. Sophomore Issac Hoffman unfortunately suffered a knee injury and was kept out of the meet. Glen Wang, ’17, joined late and was unable to participate in the event.

Cross country senior co-captain, Soren Hoffman, finished the meet, and set his seasonal record of 19:09.24. He was followed by freshman Matthew Oliver, who finished the meet with a time of 22:29.61. Junior co-captain Michael Fu ran with a time of 24:09.79.

After his first time running the full meet, Oliver set his personal record and discussed his strategy for the race.

“I did good on the first mile, I kept at a good pace and it was easy to do,” Oliver said. “The second mile was a little bit harder. The track was a bit bumpier and I was tired, but it didn’t slow me down. The last mile was pretty good overall.”

Hoffman joined cross country training for triathlons, and also set his new personal best record.

“I feel like I could have gone faster on the second mile,” Hoffman said. “But other than that I felt pretty good.”

Coach Doug Daniel was pleased with hard work of the team.

“I think the guys ran hard,” Daniel said. “I think they give me their best effort. I was really grateful that they didn’t go out too fast this time. Or at the very least, they went out at the time I instructed them to.”

The Eagles will compete in the Firebaugh High School, Sept. 23.

    This particular take took far longer than it should have. Can you guess why?
