Ndili Paces Freshman Boys to 2nd Place Finish in WCAL #2 at GoldenGatePark

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco – The Warriors made the journey to San Francisco and it was the freshman boys who once again stole the headlines.  Coming off an impressive Saturday performance at the Clovis Invitational they duplicated their efforts finishing second in the team standings for the second consecutive league meet of the season.  Nedu Ndili led the way with his first sub 18 performance running 17:45, but it was the strength of the pack that followed separated by a mere 38 seconds that solidified their finish.

Cameron Lockard was second across the finish line for the Warriors in 18:22.  It took just 9 seconds for Justin Baraona and Matthew Weeks to follow; Samuel Cuevas (18:58) and Yash Patel (19:00), Wilson Chung (19:15) rounded out the scoring team.  Their second place finish places them in a solid second place behind Bellarmine heading into the WCAL Championship on November 6.
