Cross country sport shorts: Central Section Division V

(For the previous meet, check out the Kingsburg Gun Club.)

This week, the Eagle cross country team was one of the five schools who ran in the West Sequoia League Central Section Division V Cross Country Championships at Caruthers High. The other four schools participating were Riverdale, Fowler, Caruthers and Parlier.

Due to the the small size of the league, the junior varsity boys and girls ran in the same race. The race was two miles long and the runners traveled all around down town Caruthers.The race had 39 participants, 37 junior varsity boys and two junior varsity girls.

Coming in first for the Eagles was Jordan Castro, ’15, who finished at fourth place with a time of 12:06. After Castro was Daniel Moore, ’14, who passed the finish line at seventh and a time of 12:17. Immediately after Moore was sophomore Tyler Laird who came in 10th place at 12:20.

Aliciana Quintana, ’14, came in first out of the two junior varsity girls at 16:11.

“It felt good to get first, but I didn’t fell like I accomplished to much running against one other person,” Quintana said. “I was just glad I didn’t run by myself.”

Coach Ross Laird felt that the race was a good stepping stone into the Central Section Final next week.

“The team ran well and is on track to have a successful run at Woodward Park in the Central CIF Section meet,” Laird said. “The progression of all the runners is very encouraging to the progression of the team.”

The team’s next meet will be the CIF Central Section Finals held at Woodward Park, Nov. 10.
