Week 8 Wrap-Up

 
Mt. SAC Invitational (Boys)
Much like they did a year ago, the Jurupa Hills Spartans have laid low this fall, racing sparingly.  The strategy worked last season as the Spartans won the state Division 3 title.  Now they have moved up to Division 2 and came out of hiding for the Team Sweepstakes race on Saturday.  Questions about their 5th runner have been answered as he came in at 16:02, which sounds great, but could be a liability moving deep into the post-season.  To make up for that, the other 4 threw down incredible times as their #3 runner finished in 15:17.  Michael Teran ran 14:57 with Luis Ortega at 15:07 and Devon Reed at 15:17 to lead the all-senior lineup for the Spartans.  They are closing in on the County record and are now just 13 seconds off at 76:58.  They finished 2nd overall, falling only to the #1 team in all of California, Great Oak...Ayala ran well in the teams sweeps, finishing 15th in a loaded field at 81:09...Caleb Webb ran alone in the Individual Sweeps race running 14:34 to finish 3rd overall.  His time vaults him to #2 all-time in County history, sandwiched between the Hall brothers to give Big Bear the top 3 spots...Chino Hills was impressive in the "sub-sweeps" race as they defeated Yucaipa in a head to head battle and their team time was the second best from County teams...Serrano's boys raced well to finish 3rd in their varsity race, while Rancho Cucamonga, lacking that powerful lead runner, packs as well as anyone as they ran 82:26...In another big time head to head matchup, Colony defeated a talented Bloomington squad 47-58 as they 1-2 in their varsity race.

Mt. SAC Invitational (Girls)
The Serrano Diamondbacks have gained a lot of recent experience on the big stage over the last few years.  They put that experience on the course in the Team Sweepstakes race on Saturday and while they raced well and scored well, they each have another gear that will be used in mid-November when the stakes are higher.  As usual, Kelly Fairchild and Courtney Brenner led the way as they finished 4th, just 6 points out of 3rd.  Missing was frosh sensation McKenzie Cornell, which would have given them 3rd place.  The others filled in well as they ran 93:06, the 10th fastest time in County history...Chino Hills' girls rose to the occasion with their boys as they finished 5th in the "sub-sweeps" with Grace Staton running 18:27 on her first go-round at Mt. SAC...Redlands is rounding into post-season shape as Karen Jacobs is regaining her form, which has to make the Terriers happy with their already deep squad...Jennifer Sandoval has proven to be a big meet runner as she rolled in her varsity race at 18:23...Yucaipa seems to avoid any kind of sweeps race, saving the "big" race for the post-season, and they romped in their varsity race scoring 37 points for an easy win.  Mackenna Mason has burst on to the scene in a big way as she won in 18:15...Bursting on the scene a year ago, Claire Graves has backed her fantastic frosh season well for Citrus Valley.  She has a better supporting cast as the Blackhawks matched Yucaipa's 37 points for the win in their varsity race.  Graves won by 1:13 in the race running 17:20, which would have placed her 3rd in the individual sweeps race...Colony is making a comeback as they took 4th in their race...Granite Hills was a race winner with 3 finishers in the top 6.

Small Schools Rankings
We received a request for separate rankings of small schools, so we thought we would give it a go!  One problem is defining "small school", but we will go with Division 4 and 5 schools.  
1.  Big Bear 
2.  Ontario Christian
             *ranked #9 in CIF-SS Division 5  
3.  29 Palms
4.  Riverside Prep
5.  Western Christian 
 
There is no question that the defending State champion Division 3 team, Jurupa Hills,  will spend most if not the entire season at the top of this list.  With Michael Teran capable of running with anyone after a 14:50 at Mt. SAC, and three supporters in the mid-15:00 range, the Spartans have the goods to return to Fresno.  If they can close the gap to their 5th, they could repeat in Fresno.  They are all seniors, so we will have to watch the lower levels and how they progress.  Colony is a clear number 2 here and have a 5th runner right with Jurupa Hills' number 5, but the Titans, while solid up front, cannot match the firepower that the Spartans possess.  Led by Josh Zavala and Matthew Contreras, four of their top five are juniors, so they have time to develop.  Yucaipa, with Thomas Durham leading the way, sit comfortably in the number 3 position here and will look to youngsters to give them the chance to move up.  Things tighten up here, but we are giving the nod to Serrano over Chino Hills, despite the Huskies possessing the better team time.  The Diamondbacks should have the services of sophomore Jhavahn Holsten, who could be their number one or two runner, which would place them ahead of Yucaipa's time, possibly nearing Colony's.  Tommy Manning has run under 16:00 and they have a decent pack.  Rancho Cucamonga is right in the mix here, but have to weather the loss of their top two, but the Cougars have a history of reloading quickly.
 
As far as the small schools go, Big Bear is rock solid with Caleb Webb leading the way at 14:48.  They can get their 5th runner in under 18:00, so this is a program that gets a whole lot out of a small student body (under 800).  Ontario Christian is a distant 2nd as they cannot match the power up front and need to improve at the number 5 spot.  The Knights are led by Jakob Eichor.
 
Girls:
1.  Serrano
          *preseason freshman all-state honorable mention McKenzie Cornell will join the                  Diamondbacks

3.  University Prep
4.  Arrowhead Christian
5.  Western Christian
 
The top two should look familiar as they again top the rankings.  Serrano and Yucaipa will again do battle with the edge going to Serrano to start the season.  Both squads lost legendary senior front-runners, but Serrano returns better scorers in Courtney Brenner and Kelly Fairchild and have a 1:20 team time advantage.  Both teams have gaps to their 5th and this is what may give the Thunderbirds hope, as they generally have a deeper squad and may have the better opportunity to improve that position.  Sydney Vollhardt and Kenadi Davis will lead a tight pack for Yucaipa.  Ayala is not far behind with Sydney Tullai and Morgan Tanner strong up front for the Bulldogs.  A coaching change didn't seem to affect them during track, so we will see how it affects the cross country season.  Redlands rounds out a top four that appear to be clear of the rest of the County.  Karen Jacobs is outstanding up front at 17:49 for the Terriers and they have all remaining scorers under 20:00, most of them significantly under.  Citrus Valley and Rancho Cucamonga are very close and possess the top two runners in the County from a year ago.  Claire Graves leads the Blackhawks, having run 17:10 at Mt. SAC, but if they want to remain above the Cougars, they need to close the gap between number 4 and number 5.  Erin Holton ran 17:27 for Rancho Cucamonga with Megan Maretti improving nicely last season.  This is a team that could do some damage if they can improve at the number 4 and 5 spots.  
 
For the small schools, this conversation begins and ends with Big Bear.  This was a team that marched through the postseason, improving week by week and lost their front runner in Jennifer Schick, but return everyone else.  Their projected top 6 will be 5 sophomores and 1 junior!  Haley and Hanna Cabrera will lead a talented Bears squad.  Riverside Prep starts out at the #2 spot, as the small Victorville school is led by Alexandra Child, who ran 21:35 last season at Mt. SAC.
