The Boys’ team went up against some of the best Division IV teams in Southern California. This however didn't intimidate them, because every runner ran their best time. Before coming into the race the Boys’ were ranked 13th, then after the race they were ranked 10th.
The top 4 boys Brett Bermudez, Dakota Alford, Jorge Jeronimo, Anuare Magana, were all under the 16:00 minutes. While the next 3 runners David Alcala, Jayson Baker, and Brian Maclean were between 17 to low 19 minutes. The team average dropped drastically from when they first started practicing 18 weeks ago.
The Cross Country Team received a new coach back in 2010, Steve Moreno. Since then he has been trying to develop a strong team by helping runners daily.
Also, Coach Steve Moreno was asked what the hardest part about coaching was he said, “Coaching athletes has always been a joy for me, but if there is one challenge in regards to ‘hardest part of coaching,’ it would be to get new potential new athletes to try the sport of cross country or track. The experience that one would find in being part of a Team can be one of the best high school experiences.”
