Marcano Runs Strong, Just Misses Qualifying for State

Maryah Marcano despite a strong effort placed 22nd out of 114 runners and missed qualifying for the state meet. Her time of 18:39 was just 5 seconds and 6 places away from the last qualifier. The race was very competitive and close. She was able to close the gap on the leaders as she moved from 35th to the 22nd in the second half of the race, but it was not quite enough. This ends a great season for her and the whole team. She is only a junior and will look forward to her senior year as one of the favorites in the southern section and the state returning for her senior year. We congratulate her on and all on a very great and successful 2013 Cross Country Season.

Marcano Makes Burroughs History!

Maryah Marcano became the first ever Lady Burro to Qualify for the CIF Southern Section Cross Country Finals by placing sixth in her heat in a personal best 18:31. It was a miraculous performance as she was rated as the 9th best individual entering the race. She ran the best race of her life in the toughest of all heats. In doing so, she smashed the old school record of 19:18 (Jenny Dutschi in 2008) and beat her personal best of 19:34 for the course. The rest of the Lady Burros performed well with 3 other personal best times for the Mt. SAC course, but are now finished for the season. Their team time of 110:35 was better than last year and good enough for 334 points and 13th place. Others competing included: 67. Anne Ewbank in 20:57 PB, 72. Julia Ernst in 21:13 PB, 92. Mrain Carey in 22:47, 109. Cindel Barnes in 27:07 PB, 110. Rawiah Osman in 27:24, and 111. Jenna Daugherty in 27:59. The rest of the team had a great year while managing to keep together a TEAM and finish with seven runners. Highlights are Maryah making CIF Finals and running at the Walt Disney World Classic.


Boys Run Strong at CIF Prelims

The boys’ team finished the season at the CIF Southern Section prelims with strong performances, but were not able to qualify, neither a team or individual, to the Finals, despite two personal bests and two best for the course performances. Josh Boston again ran well and a personal best for the course but it was not good enough as he finished in 12th place with a time of 15:44. The team placed 11th and were faster than last year running a team time of 85:00. Others competing included: 39. Christian Schultz in 16:26 PR, 72. Greg Ostrom in 17:19, 80. Nathaniel Aralar in 17:31 PR, 89. Alex Salinas in 18:00, 90. Andrew Estabridis in 18:01 PB, and 103. Alan Bradford in 18:52. The boys are now done for 2013 and had a very successful cross country season with many great accomplishments highlighted by the Desert Sky League Championship and Josh Boston’s 2nd place run at the Walt Disney World Classic.
