We will be traveling to Clovis, CA on Friday and Saturday to compete at Woodward Park, home of the State Meet!  This course is historic and the Clovis Invitational is one of the best and most competitive in the land.  In the boys' Sweepstakes race, there are five nationally ranked teams including King that will be competing!  Should be a lot of fun and a Great Experience.

Tuesday Night is our Booster Club meeting.  We meet at 7:00 PM and end at 8:00 PM in Coach Peters' classroom, conveniently located next to the parking lot next to the stadium.  All parents are welcome to come!

Clovis meeting: For athletes who will be participating in the meet on Saturday, we will have a mandatory meeting following the afternoon practice on Tuesday.  Itineraries will be given out along with the rules and expectations of the trip. Parents are not expected to be there.

Clovis payment: It is $125 for the trip and that payment is due on Tuesday.  Make checks payable to King Cross Country Booster Club.  If paying with cash, bring exact bills please.

training plan

Monday, October 5

At the popular Central Park meet in Huntington Beach the King teams were treated to cool ocean breezes and cool outcomes to a set of races that looked a bit odd.  There were several factors at play in making a different look to the squad.  The SAT test took out quite a few seniors, injuries and illness grabbed another handful and the entire boys varsity team was training through the meet.  The girls' varsity team was split into grade-level races leaving only two regulars to toe the line in the varsity race. The curiousity factor wasn't enough to steal some pleasant results from King, as those who did race, raced well.  

The JV boys team finished second behind Huntington Beach's normal varsity squad, so it was quite a performance.  Mario Machuca led the way with yet another fine performance.  Fellow junior, Austin Dai was right behind him in the top 10.  Evan Tinker also medaled with a scoring effort as did Isaiah Curtner and Austin Hoffman.  

The freshmen girls had a couple of racers in Lauren Peurifoy and Amanda Sosa who would have been in the varsity race, and they raced like it, finishing 2nd and 3rd overall.  Mackenzie Peters had her strongest race of the season in 32nd place to grab a medal and a PR.

Garrett Vasta led the way for the freshmen boys with a time of 17:19 which was King's 7th fastest on the day.  Roman Hernandez, Jacob Mitchell, Dathan Chann and Joseph Landeros all helped in the scoring, bringing King a third place finish in the race.

The sophomore boys team had three finishers in the top ten, including Chris Barba and Jon Moncada running closely together most of the race and finishing in 3rd and 4th overall, with Aman Rana finishing in 9th overall, improving almost two-and-a-half minutes from his race last year. Along with scorers Steven Parker and Alvin Agatep, the boys came in 2nd place as a team. Also impressive was Brandon Villacres, who continued to show his amazing progress this year by improving 3 minutes over his time from last year.

In the sophomore girls race Joelle Ramos ran in 2nd for most of the race, but in the last mile she turned it on to record the lone victory of the day for the Wolves, leading a pack of four runners in the top ten, including Carissa Avila in 3rd (who cut more than 4 minutes from her race last year!), Alex Huff in 5th, and Skye Smith in 10th to lead the girls to a strong 2nd place team result. Rebekah Pendleton and Jessica Ferguson both ran quality races as King’s only varsity girls in the last race of the day.

So it was an "odd" day of sorts; with scrambled lineups, missing seniors and an empty box at the start of the boys varsity race how could it be anything but that?  What wasn't odd though, was the success the King runners took home, making the day not that much different from others, save those cool ocean breezes.
