Monday, October 16

"I'm not gonna lie" said 9th grader, Edgar Ortega, "That course was challenging."

Fitting testimony perhaps, for a meet called the Inland Empire Challenge that pits the schools of Riverside County against San Bernardino County for bragging rights and All-County accolades.

And yes, they duke it out over a winding and difficult 3 mile course at the Glen Helen amphitheater that requires resolve and determination from all who toe the line. Throw in some warm temperatures and strong winds as they had on Saturday and, well, you've got yourself quite a challenge.

For King there was another layer of difficulty, as the meet was the third race in 8 days. For that reason some of the girls varsity didn't race, but that didn't stop those who did from working toward excellence regardless of uncommon lineup. Karylee Taylor was the team leader this time and finished third overall with another great performance and an "All County" award for being one of the top 7 Riverside County finishers on the day. Amanda Sosa raced well too, but the day was significant as Kela Mavhera returned to action after a season of battling an injury. She did well in her first race this season. Ashley Haring and Joelle Ramos also scored which gave the girls a third-place finish in the "varsity race" despite missing three of their normal racers.

The boys' varsity team looked good with a great pack near the front, as Garrett Vasta, Chris Barba, Mitchell Machuca, Austin Fortenberry and Mazin Awad wrapped up the scoring to earn the win for the team at the varsity level. Freshman Francisco Zavaleta didn't score but was among the top seven 9th graders on the day from the entire county and went home with hardware to display. Vasta, Machuca and Fortenberry all garnered All-County awards as well.

Third place was earned by the JV boys as well, as they raced with great integrity, despite some tired legs. Daniel Lopez, Matthew Castro and Michael Munoz crossed the line in a bunch, 5-6-7, to score low points and Connor Sharp and Brandon Villacres finished in the top 35 to give King the trophy behind Chino Hills and Great Oak.

Edgar Ortega was the top 9th grader in the frosh race, crossing in 17:52, while Brian Green was the top Wolf runner in the sophomore race. Skylar Smith led the JV girls in 19th place, while freshman Grace Lowry continued her improvement with a 21:33 finish, among the top 9 best King times on the whole day! Skye Hutchinson was the first King finisher in the sophomore girls race with a good race.

Adding to the festivities was the presence of Olympians Brenda Martinez and Boris Berian. Martinez is a UCR and Rancho Cucamonga graduate and the two elites stood for over four hours, signing autographs and posing for pictures.

Challenges, of course are part of life, and it's best to walk (or run) right into them, face them head on and see what one can do to overcome them. For the King harriers -- many of whom are in the middle of learning just how to do that -- the meet served as a tutor, requiring a faithful focus in the midst of difficulty, and for most of them, they went home knowing they had passed the test.

As of October 5, 71% of our team has helped with fundraising.  Please, we really need 100% involvement!  If you've already helped to meet our need, thank you! If you haven't, please do so soon!  

Each season, it costs approximately $14,000 to fund our season, all of which we have to raise.  (As just one example, our banquet alone - not counting food and room rental - is close to $2,000 each season!)  

Our program is not fully funded by the school or the RUSD.  While some funding is provided, we are left FAR SHORT of what it actually costs to have a canopy banner, banquet yearbook, coaches, awards, invitational fees paid, travel expenses, drinks and water at practice, awards, and more.  NONE of these things are fully funded by the school or district.

So, we need all athletes to participate in our fundraising, and we ask that each of you raise a minimum of $125 toward the financial necessities of the season.  

You can do this through a variety of ways.

Here they are:

Parent volunteer hours working the parking lot of the Riverside Cross Country Course - we have multiple weekends in which we need help.  KXC receives fundraising dollars from this effort.

Business Sponsorship    Friends/Family Donation   

Straight Family Donation of $125.  Make check payable to "King Cross Country Booster Club".  If you'd prefer to pay online using a credit card, you can use this link (it includes Paypal's convenience fee)

Scrip balances - While this is not a "quick" way of accruing $125, over time, the proceeds that you earn from purchasing scrip from our scrip coordinator, can be donated to the program to help cover all or part of the $125 request

Thursday, August 24

Parents - for the last two seasons and continuing on this season, we have a great opportunity to help our program get funded.  The Riverside Cross Country Course hosts a number of competitions all through the season and concludes with the CIF SS Divisional Finals.

We and a few people from La Sierra XC run the parking lot, taking payment and directing traffic.

We need your help!  Please click on this link and volunteer to help us out.
