Congrats to everyone who competed at the Woodbridge XC Classics, especially in the HEAT!!
Here are few highlights from the evening. With both of our varsity teams sitting out, the Sophomore girls stepped up to take the first win of the night led by Olivia Reichle (3rd) and closely followed by Sarah Murray (4th), and Madison Templeman (6th). Sophomore boys almost match the feat but lost to West Torrance (by a few seconds and points we think) but came away with the fastest team time of the race. Results are unofficial currently. Jayke Pastis had a big race (3rd) with Anthony Keenan (6th) and Santiago Sanchez (11th) rounding out our top three, all had big PRs. Both boys’ and girls’ freshmen teams got a taste of running 3 miles for the first time in extremely difficult conditions but prevailed. David Gomez, Will Essman, and Leandro Oquendo were the boy’s leaders. Girl’s leaders were Darla Media, Luisa Escamilla, and Susana Torres. JV girls would have won their race if all our JV girls ran in the same race. Gen Gray and Emily Cody ran in a varsity race to take advantage of cooler weather. Other JV girls ran during the toughest time of the day but our top 3 finishers of Izzy Cristerna, Madeline Essman and Alicia Long all held their own by finishing in the top 60 places. Spencer Kandel (6th) had a big race in the senior only race and Max Cox (17th) was our top Jr.
Other medal winners were Dylan Messineo, Ryan Doherty, Ryan Lettieri, Riley Folk, Ian Mead and Thomas Mannion for the boys. On the girl’s side, they were Paulette Dominguez, Gia Sveda, Gillian Gregory, Abigail Zertuche, Megan Dorame, Natalie Craycraft, and Kaya Irvani. Congrats to all!!
