This was the most successful trip our program has ever taken to the "The Largest Cross Country Invitational in the World". We took more athletes than we ever have, we won more awards than ever before and our team was ridiculous during the post race impromptu dance party (thank you Taylor, Justin, Michelle and Talon).
Also, a special congrats goes out the the Freshman Boys' Team for winning third place in the team race for Division 3!
Simone Federici: You had a really solid first time at Mt. SAC. THe hills are really rough and not knowing the course is difficult. You were great.
Katie Gavares: Best race you have run this season. You are very strong on the hills. Impressive.
Illiana Guirant: You looked really good for the first half. We still need to work on making our whole race consistent.
Carolyn Keating: You were strong during a hot and tought day of running. You should be proud of the race that you put in.
Sally Keating: I know that the race was really hard for you. The whole team was proud of how you "powered through it".
