Cross Country had a fantastic outcome at our local Dennis DeWitt race Saturday, September 2nd at Lions Town and Country Park. Co-Captains Seth Garcia and Adrian Alvarez came first for the Boys team with Seth running a time of 9:18, then Adrian at 9:56.8, and third came Alejandro Duran at 10:25.3. Girls also had some amazing times with Captain Veronica Ortega running an 11:11, then for MSHS came Dariana Miramontes at 12:07.8, and next Jaydah Aguilar at 12:13.1. As a former MSHS XC runner, I understand the joy that must have come for runners after this meet due to it being the first race of the season and for running so well. Co-Captain Seth Garcia expresses his thoughts on the upcoming season by saying,” You know, I really think this season is going to be a tough one. We need to get a lot of guys up to a high standard we have with our program. I know they can do it, it is just a matter of how bad they want it. Other teams count us out, but they’ll be surprised when we kick butt. I know we can do it. It’s just a matter of heart and keeping guys healthy.” Madera South Boys Cross Country is currently working on the journey to win their 10th consecutive Valley Championship. Their next race will be at Kingsburg High September 9th, at 8:00 AM.
