Freshman Mackenzie Thomas had a breakthrough performance running 19:52, her first run under 20 minutes. Thomas took the race out aggressively crossing two miles in 12:50 a respectable time in itself. The remaining scorers all packed together at the two mile mark in 13:42 or faster.
Brianna Becerra led the charge of the chase pack passing two miles in 13:25. She finished in 20:30, a time over two minutes faster than she ran here a year ago! Nicole Favre is back to full strength running a personal best 20:50. Sophia Patterson also smashed her personal best running 21:13, exactly one minute faster than last year. Freshman Kayla Nanez tightened up the last mile but continues to be a huge impact runner for the varsity team running 21:17. Vanessa Giacalone rounded out the varsity team running 21:46.
The boys were led by Joe Renati who finished in a team record 16:18. Three other's cracked the 17 minute mark as well: Nedu Ndili (16:48), Mitchell Rohr (16:54) and Sam Cuevas (16:55). Dean DeMoss also finished in personal best 17:14; Peter Enfantino (17:19) and Justin Baraona (17:48) rounded out the varsity team.
Renati led the team through two miles in 10:42 with Ndili close behind in 10:47. The remaining pack came through in 11:10-11:15. Once again the spread of the varsity boys was just 55 second apart.
In the boys Freshman race Jake DeMoss finished 13th in a time of 18:13.
"I thought our runners did a great job," Coach Hamilton said about the race. "They worked together, ran well and we had lots of personal bests today to prove it."
