Cross country sport shorts: Woodward Park

(Latest cross country sports shorts will be at the top of the section. For the previous meet, check out the Cross country sport shorts: Firebaugh.)

FC ran the Clovis Invitational hosted at Woodward Park as the meet held thousands of runners, representing many schools in several races, Oct. 8.

The Eagles ran in two of these races: the freshman/sophomore small school girls race and the freshman/sophomore small and medium school boys race.

Running the girls race for the team was sophomore Aliciana Quintana who ran with 224 runners and came in 205th place with a time of 27:27.

“I think I did OK because it was my first three mile race and being the only girl on the team is interesting,” Quintana said.

The other race included the rest of the team among 178 runners total. Leading the Eagles was Daniel Moore, ’14, performing his best ever at Woodward with a time of 20:35 to come in at 113th.

“I did a lot better than I did last year on this course and I beat my time by 20 seconds,” Moore said.

In hot pursuit was Tyler Laird who finished 114th with a close time of 20:37. Following was freshman Jordan Castro who came in at 20:46 and 119th place.

Before the race coach Ross Laird set goals for each of his runners to run based on their times two weeks ago.

“Some of them I gave what I thought would be unreachable goals and everybody either almost reached their goal, some did way better than I expected them to do I’m surprised by everybody, everyone ran extremely well.”

The Eagles will next race at the Roughrider Invitational at Woodward Park, Oct. 14.
