Boys Team Record Falls at Early Bird Invitational

For the second consecutive year the boys varsity set a team time record at Toro Park thanks to a strong all-around showing.  Eyobed Mesfun led the team with a time of 17:39 which places him #3 on the Warriors All-time list as all five scoring runners finished under 18:30.

The boys record of 92:04 set in 2011 shattered by nearly a minute dropping the new standard to 91:09.

The girls were off of their record performance a year ago but still packed in the top six girls within a 30 second spread led by Kellianne Connolly's 21:09.  The team is trending up to start the season with their best racing ahead of them!

Most improved on the boys side was Alex Ascencio who dropped 80 seconds from last year's time while for the girls Shannon Luu took 27 seconds off of her best.  It takes courage to push yourself through uncomfortable paces running faster than you never have before, but one thing for sure is that it feels good at the end of the day to leave it all out there.  “There was nothing I could have done to go faster,” Luu said after her race.  “I left it all out on the course today.”

While times were sluggish due to warm temperatures both teams competed strong with the girls finishing 11th and the boys 23rd out of 50 teams throughout Northern California.
