Cross country sport shorts: CIF Central Section Qualifier Meet

The FC cross country team traveled to Woodward Park to participate in the CIF Central Section Qualifier meet, Nov. 15.

Juniors Daniel Moore and Tyler Laird ran in the Division V Varsity Boys race, a 5K [3.1 mile] loop around the park. Moore finished in 13th place with a time of 20:43. Laird crossed the finish line seventh with a time of 18:56.

Moore felt that the meet went well, but is disappointed that he did not meet his goal

“I felt like I ran pretty well,” Moore said. “I didn’t reach my goal time, though. It was probably because there wasn’t a particularly large amount of people, and when there is a large pack there are more people to compete with, so I run faster.”

Coach Ross Laird was pleased with the effort and results, though he had hoped that all of the team would qualify.

“They {Tyler and Daniel} did great,” Ross said. “I was really pleased with the effort they put out. The team made great progress, and it was a good finish for the season, though I had hoped Daniel would qualify [for the State Meet].”

Update 12/5 Following the completion of the cross country season, Moore was awarded Team Captain, and Laird was selected for Most Valuable Player.
