Week 2 Wrap-Up
Week 2 begins with a Saturday that allowed Cajon's meet to live up to it's name.  Let the heat wave begin!
 
Dog Days of Summer Invitational
Hosted by Cajon, this was originally an alternative meet for Mt. SAC, but that proved to be a tough sell when CIF is held on that course.  They moved it here, and everyone is thankful to have another local meet to choose from, although had they known the weather, maybe they wait a year.
There were some partial squads here as it appears some programs gave their lower levels a chance to shine while their top runners got the weekend off.  Yucaipa appears to have brought all their frosh-soph girls, led by Mackenna Mason and Sarah Gee and it was enough to give the Thunderbirds top honors overall.  Cajon's top two of Samantha Poliakon and Yulissa Mendoza were outstanding, as both broke 19 minutes.  Yucca Valley rested their top athletes and it appears Yucaipa did not bring any varsity boys at any level as it looks like the Homero Orozco and Jacob Paz led Cajon boys outdueled Redlands, who presents a tough top three in Sam Thouas, Daniel Tang and Alex Tongpo.

Morro Bay Invitational
No hot temps here with the sun only making an appearance in the final JV race and even then it pushed temps into the 70's.  It's cool, but the beach sand is not and there is plenty of that on this course that measures differently each year depending on tides and the placement of the lifeguard tower.  Los Osos uses it as a reward trip for those that attend the most summer practices, and while there are no official team results, both teams finished in the top 4.  The Grizzlies were happy to have a healthy Sarah Holloway back after missing most of both cross country and track seasons in 2013-2014.  She gave Ashley Davis of Paso Robles all she could handle, giving way with 100 meters to go to finish 2nd.  Bradley Ewart led the boys, finishing 5th overall.
 
Varsity Boys Team Scores:  1. Paso Robles - 54;  2. San Luis Obispo - 69;  3. Santa Ynez - 96;  4. Los Osos - 123

Laguna Hills Invitational
Warm weather made it's way into Orange County Saturday morning, but that didn't stop Chino Hills from finishing well on both the boys and girls side.  Peter Torres ran a nice 16:05 with Christopher Arcos running under 16:30 as well.  After a year of superstar freshman girls, it appears the Huskies have one in 2014 as Grace Staton won the frosh race easily and ran the 6th fastest time on the day.  Erin Carvalho led a solid 2-5 pack as the Huskies finished 14th overall.  Manuel Ramirez and Uriel Mercado ran well for Sultana, with Ramirez at 16:27.  Samuel Betancourt was a clear front-runner for San Gorgonio, racing to a nice 16:53.  Sultana's Kaylee Upham raced well at 20:45.

Rosemead Invitational
Bloomington's boys had a great day at Rosemead as they posted the 9th fastest team time on the day at 78:29, as their 5th man came in at 16:05 on the fast course.  The Bruins' highlights came with a team win in the sophomore race, as they placed 4 in the top 25, led by Gerardo Vazquez.  With a 4th place finish in the junior race, Federico Juarez had the fastest Bloomington time of the day at 15:01.  The Bruins are off to a hot start as they moved to #12 in the County rankings and may move up again this week.  The fastest County time of the day was not even close as Alta Loma's Koby Peterson continues to improve.  He ran 5th in the senior race with a 14:37.  Pacific's Javin Singer finished 17th in that same race to lead the Pirates while Upland's Ryan Khoury ran well to finish 21st.
Pacific's Elizabeth Palma had the fastest County time for the girls at 19:04, but Alta Loma looks to have picked up a talented freshman in Alyssa Segovia who finished 5th in the freshman race at 19:06.

Grant Nunnally Invitational
Small schools action sees 29 Palms on the rise!  Their boys were beaten soundly by perennial Division 5 power Woodcrest Christian, which is ranked #2 in that division, but they fared well against the other competition. as senior Ronnie Rondreau led the way with a 3rd place finish.  Western Christian's Noah Meister was solid in 4th place.  
It was the girls that were impressive.  I'm not sure if this was La Salle's "A" team, but if it was, it could be a big year for 29 Palms, who lost by just a point to the #4 team in Division 4.  The Wildcats have a stud freshman in Vanessa Walton, who easily ran away with a 45 second win.

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.

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.
