Great Day of Racing at Ed Sias Invitational! (Sep 11)

Varsity Girls Start
The Pumas enjoyed another successful edition of the Ed Sias Invitational this past Saturday!  It was fun going up against some of the finest Cross Country programs in North Coast Section.  For our novice runners, this was a taste for what bigger competitions are about (over 1700 runners took part!)  Following is a list of observations and recognitions from the coaches, in no particular order...

...15 of 22 athletes that had previously raced this course improved their time.  Following are those who improved their times (Name/New PR/Improvement over Previous Time)

  • Dalin Lowder 13:00 01:02

...The Freshman Boys team easily won their race over 17 other schools.  In fact, when you combine the results of all the races (including the Frosh/Soph, JV, and Varsity races) our freshman boys were clearly the strongest of the 22 schools at the meet.  Leading the pack for the Pumas was Colin Bartlett  (#11 frosh out of 264 freshman boys at the meet) and Nick Jensen - #15 frosh overall...

Other "top 10%" performances included
