Congrats to all OCC participants!! It was another fine showing for the Chargers. Almost all course PRs (unreal under those conditions) and a number of athletes had distance PRs!! WOW!!! Varsity teams went to battle with the best of the OC!! Boys finished 2nd once again and Girls 4th and could not retain the winner’s trophy. Still the best-combined program in OC!! Boys did make a huge statement by beating Trabuco Hills (preseason #18 in Calif all divisions, ET ranked #71) once again and Woodbridge who was ranked #6 in D2 SS. The goal was to get closer to Dana Hills, but they ran lights out. On the girl’s side, it was an OFF DAY for sure, but these are tremendous competitors and they will be back to show what they are made of soon.

It was too bad about the rest of the teams as they did not get to showcase their talent and a shot at All-County for many individuals. Both Sophomore teams were expected to win in a spectacular fashion. Soph boys were expected to go 1, 2 and 3 with rest of the top 5 finishing in the top 15. Soph Girls also had a clear individual leader and all 5 scorers expected to finish in the top 10. JV teams were also expected to finish as winners or runner-ups individually as well as teams.

Individual top performances were turned in by following All-County athletes. Mitch Groff (1st Team, 3rd), Juan Torres (1st Team, 7th), Jonas Hartline (2nd Team, 8th), Khaled Ajaj (2nd Team, 8th) and Daniel Guzman (3rd Team 15th). On the girl’s side, it was Kasey Lynd (1st Team, 2nd), Alexis Neuville (1st Team, 7th), Grace Griffin (2nd Team, 9th), Jessica Martinez (3rd Team, 15th) and Taylor Slouka (3rd Team, 18th). Other Medal winners were David Gomez (12th), Ian Mead (18th), Richard You (24th), Leandro Oquendo (37th), Darla Media (7th), Madison Greene (23rd), Luisa Escamilla (24th) and Susan Torres (25th).
