Congrats to the girls varsity team and Xavier Court on qualifying to the State Meet next week! The top 7 teams from each division qualify for the state meet. The girls placed 6th as a team and the boys placed 11th. Xavier Court placed 8th individually and qualified to go as an individual. Congrats to all runners on a hard fought battle!
Girls Varsity Results: The team was led by Olivia Hacohen in 28th place but the highlight of the day was the team effort by all that earned them a spot to the State Meet. All runners behind her moved up significantly in the last half of the race, with Brooke Inouye and Lucy Atkinson within seconds of Olivia in 31st and 35th place. Pnina Tofler had a solid day as the #4 runner and Tia Pappas moved up 24 spots late to be our 5th scoring runner. Together the girls placed 6th as a team.
Boys Varsity Results: The boys team was led by Xavier Court in 8th place in the most competitive race of the day. Our boys went for it from the gun, gave it all they had but came up short in 11th place. The top five individuals not attached to a qualified team earn individual spots to the State Meet so Xavier Court will be moving on to the State Meet individually. Congrats to Xavier and to the boys team on a great season!!
Both teams successfully qualified for CIF Finals!
