Final League Victory For Cross Country

By Sara Littlejohn 
What an exciting week for Cross Country! This past Wednesday, our Cross Country teams traveled to Willow Hills Reviser to race in the Cal League Final. Our Men’s Cross Country did not disappoint when they brought home first place. Nevin Afong ‘19, Isaiah Jimenez ‘19, Berto Mujica ‘19, and Enrique Verschoor ‘19 continued to lead the team. With Afong placing 1st, Jiminez 3rd, Berto 5th and Enrique 7th, the first place ranking was taken by the Falcons. All four boys were also awarded All-League. And even after the amazing awards, Christian Brothers Varsity Men’s Cross Country are the league champs of the 2018 season too! Our men’s team is currently ranked 7th in the state, looking for redemption as they take on the 3rd ranked team, Placer, for the section title at the conclusion of their season.

The Women’s Varsity Cross Country team also had a strong meet. Top runs by Malia Gay ‘21, Rain Cheng ‘21, Alieen Fortin ‘19, and Jenna Martinez ‘22 helped the team take fourth place. Malia took 13th, Rain 19th, Alieen 22nd and Jenna 23rd out of 45 runners. Our women’s team looks to better themselves in the sub-Section meet on November 3rd, then advance to Sections on November 10th. They are excited for the conclusion of their 2018 season and look to continue to succeed.
