Our Cross Country team is on a roll! Most recently, they ran in the Saints Small Schools Invite, hosted by St. Augustine High School on Friday, October 10, 2014.
The race was at Balboa Park’s Morley Field, a 5K (3.08 mile) course on hilly terrain. It’s an unforgiving course, but the Warriors had an impressive showing with four athletes qualifying for medals.
There were two races – Varsity and Junior Varsity – with 70 runners in each. In the varsity race, Aren Johnson placed second with a time of 17:17. In the Junior Varsity race, Army and Navy Academy had 3 runners qualify for medals:
- Wyatt Duggan, who placed 8th with a time of 20:54
- Harrison Zhang, who finished 27th with a time of 23:03
- Yucheng Wang, who placed 32nd with a time of 23:34.
All three of these junior varsity runners are in their first year of cross country competition.
