Two Local High Schools going to CIF
We are new to the sport of High School Cross Country Running, so it has been a fun season trying to figure out how it all works.
So this is what I have learned so far. We are apart of the Baseline League-Div. 1(large schools) which includes six high schools: Alta Loma HS, Etiwanda HS, Glendora HS, Los Osos HS, Rancho Cucamonga HS, and Upland HS. Varsity usually includes the top ten runners on the team and that changes through out the season depending on results. Only 7 of the top 10 get to run as varsity at each meet the rest will run either JV or their grade level. The races are 3 miles long and they have had meets at Glen Helen, Bonelli Park, Red Hill Park, Mount San Antonia College as well as other locations. The season that started at the end of the summer is now winding down.
League finals were yesterday at Mt San Antonio College, only the top 3 Varsity teams would qualify for CIF regional and then state meets. Rancho Cucamonga HS Boys are currently ranked number one in the state, Div. 1, so we knew they would qualify barring any disasters. But, who would end up in the number 2 and 3 spot? Well, Glendora HS took 2nd and Etiwanda HS took 3rd so both teams will be going to the CIF regional meet. Alta Loma HS ended up in 5th behind Upland HS with Los Osos HS in 6th place.
Varsity girls results were Glendora HS 1st, Etiwanda HS 2nd, Rancho Cucamonga HS 3rd congrates to them and good luck as they go on to CIF. Los Osos ended up in 4th, followed by Alta Loma HS and Upland HS in that order.
Good Luck and Run Fast!
