Sunday, November 30


The 2014 boys team was challenged back in June of this year with the idea that State was in their future if they came together, trained hard, and made it their goal -- not just the coaches' goal for them.

After some nail-biting performances and results in the two rounds of the Southern Section over the previous two week, all of that was realized on Saturday as the 2014 squad became King's first ever boys team to make the State Final.  It came on the heals of a season of successes (and a few learning-moment low spots) in which they could officially back up their season-long State ranking with a spot on the starting line at Woodward Park in November.

That line included 22 other teams from across California with all 10 sections in the CIF represented.   The team had been ranked 8th in the state for most of the season but had been dropped from the top 10 in the final rankings after it appeared the team was fading -- or others were rising -- after last week's Section Finals.  So, it was with a sense of redemption that the team took to the race along with a desire to punctuate the season with a quality last outing.

Given the dynamics of this group -- absent an ace and heavily dependent on a pack  -- it was no surprise to see not one King harrier in the top 30 places after 2 miles. Carlos Ramirez and Tyler Janes ran in tandem through the 3200 meter mark and would finish in 45th and 49th respectively, scoring King's first points. Rolando Phalen was just a few places behind, and finishing within 32 seconds of Ramirez came Seth Villanueva and Mark Werley to conclude the "pack" that has been the team's trademark all season.  Daniel Gonzalez and David huff were 6th and 7th for the team.   Collectively, the group scored 237 points.

With 190-plus runners in the race, a couple-dozen non-scoring individuals, and a King team that lacks a low point front-man, it wasn't  easy to even guess what the final results would be. To many, it appeared as if a top 10 finish wasn't in the cards. Even looking at King's individual times --  almost all of which were off their course bests -- there was a collective sense of something a bit short of, "what just happened?" but also short of team-wide elation. So when the results came up that the team had finished 8th, with some distance between themselves and the land outside of top 10, a jubilant sigh of relief was felt across the King crowd as folks and runners alike realized perception hadn't trumped reality.

The first King team to compete at the state championships could easily have fallen prey to the tempting thought that simply getting to the meet was the goal, not actually racing well in it. So to finish 8th in the State, some 5 months after the goal was first verbalized, was quite an accomplishment. Out of one of the toughest divisions and sections, this team emerged to establish themselves as not just King's first ever State team, but legitimately one of the best in all of California. In a season in which the team emphasized "An Honorable Run" as its theme, the run these boys ended today certainly met and exceeded that standard.
