Surprises overcoming set backs!
Over 100 degrees out there, and humid. This course proved to be full of twists and sharp turns. Having moved up to the more competitive Ivy League this year, we were nervous about our performance, especially after a few individual set backs. Despite these, our team came in and performed in a BIG way. Our girls team battled hard to be 3rd overall after our first league outing. Only the top 3 teams get to go to CIF prelims, so this was a big win for them. Stellar performances, lead by Delia Castaneda, from Alissa Ortega and Rebecca Strong surprised our opponents. Our boys team was packed together, 3 sizeable groups under 20 minutes at near 18 flat, mid 18s and 19s. It was fun seeing them race together. They grabbed a convincing 2nd place here. Most exciting was our JV boys grabbing 1st place, in a surprise upset over Riverside Poly. Exciting years ahead for these athletes. Keep up the great work Titans!
