The boys varsity cross country clenched the Baseline League title this season. While the girls varsity team did not receive the same title, they produced the number one runner at the Baseline League finals race.


They have both been training six times a week and had gone to camp at Big Bear to train in high altitudes. 

“I feel I’ve done good, but I see places where I need to improve myself. I think the rest of the season will feature me and my teammates going to the state championship,” boys varsity cross country and junior Nolan Koopman said. “Our boys XC team is a team full of potential, grit, and drive, something that gives us [an] advantage over other teams.”

Junior Nicole Alfred, one of the top girls varsity runners, won the race at Baseline League Champions. 


“I am looking forward to seeing how the girls perform at CIF. Nicole Alfred has been a great leader for the team this season and has big goals this season that we hope are accomplished,” girls cross country coach Ms. Lizzette Carrell said.


Overall, the varsity girls cross country team placed third at the Baseline League finals race, qualifying them for CIF. 


“The team will compete in CIF Prelims on November 11 at Mt. Sac, in hopes of qualifying for the CIF Championship race,” Carrell said. 


The girls JV team also recently finished their season. Their last race was on Tuesday, Oct. 31, at Redhill park. 

“I absolutely love seeing everyone grow and improve, seeing our teammates work through difficulties. I am beyond proud of each and every one of my teammates and their growth. I am so lucky to have been a part of this team and I can’t wait to see my teammates overcome bigger obstacles as they grow,” senior and girls JV runner, Genesis Rodriguez.
