Saturday, November 10


he CIF Prelims is the path through which team must tread to make it to the CIF Finals. That path was strewn with obstacles for both the girls and the boys cross country teams on Saturday at the Riverside City Course, but they proved themselves to be up to the challenge and King will send two teams to the CIF-SS Division 1 Finals November 17.

One challenge that all teams face is the depth and quality of field that D1 produces each year. CIF-SS D1 is incredibly talented and competitive and getting through the preliminary round on a good day takes a good team. On Saturday morning, King had a few more challenges just to make it dramatic.

For the boys, ranked 7th in the Division heading into CIF, their heat (one of three) looked promising but with a couple of their members a little under the weather all week, it was going to take a solid team effort for the goal to happen. Garrett Vasta led the way followed by Austin Fortenberry who produced yet another fine race in this Junior campaign. The pack of Francisco Zavaleta, Gray Mavhera and Edgar Ortega grouped up after the first mile and raced in tandem the rest of the way. Brian Green was 6th and Mitchell Machuca - who suffered the most from illness - was 7th, well off his normal #2 spot. The team didn't have their best races, but were still able manage a 4th place finish and get their tickets punched for the Finals.


Adversity has been tattooed on this year's girls tean all season long as they've been battling through injuries and in some cases, inexperience since July.  Adversity refused to let go on Saturday morning, but the ladies refused to be moved and found a way to move on like the boys.  Lauren Peurifoy who has been nursing a leg injury virtually all season, tried gamely to get to the line, but the pain proved too much to hide.  Just three minutes before the gun, she opted to step aside and give her spot to Kela Mavhera who was ready and warmed up.  And off they went!  Kela proceeded to run the best race of her 2018 season, one that had been marred by a broken foot that kept her out of the first half of the races. Amanda Sosa and Joanie Green were inseparable near the front, while Jocelyn Stevenson continued her outstanding rookie season in third for the Lady Wolves while Jenna Bernath rounded out the scoring. Collectively the team finished in 5th - there was a hope for 8th and the final spot to move on before the race - and for good measure, defeated both league rivals, Roosevelt and the 2018 league champions, Santiago. The Sharks beat King by 36 points just a week and a half ago. Briana Rodriguez and Audrey Brunken - both rookies to the team - were 6th and 7th for the team respectively. 

 Unselfishness seemed to be the took with which both squads handed adversity a defeat.  That "you first" mentality shined brightly in the morning the girls had and was present in the boys' race as well as the pack raced in a way to make up for ailing members.  

For King, this will be the 13th trip in 20 seasons to the CIF Championship. For the boys, it's the first time in two seasons and the 9th trip in King's history. 

Overcoming hurdles is both the requirement and the art of successful living.  The same could be said of successful cross country teams.
