San Bernardino County Cross Country: Hacienda League

The Hacienda League features the Chino Cowboys.  In addition, non-San Bernardino County schools include Charter Oak, Diamond Ranch, Los Altos, Walnut and West Covina. 

2015 Boys Preview

The lone County school in this league was a distant 4th a year ago.  Chino will be hard pressed to move up the ladder in 2015 as each of the teams that finished ahead of them each return at least 4 runners.  Chino loses their top runner in Michael Torres and they had a large gap to contend with last year.  With Saul Velasco and Michael Mathias leading the way, the Cowboys average around 19:00 and that won't likely be good enough to grab a CIF spot.  Los Altos and Walnut each return 4 runners while West Covina has all 7 coming back.  

2015 Girls Preview

Chino fell 5 points short last year from getting into CIF, but have some firepower up front that may give them a shot in 2015.  Berenice Hernandez and Sierra Santoyo are back as juniors and Hernandez ran 20:53 last year at Mt. SAC.  Santoya ran 21:51 and is a solid #2, but there is a drop off from there.  If they can better support their top 2, they have a chance, although West Covina, who was 5 points ahead of them last year have 4 coming back.
