San Bernardino County Cross Country: Palomares League

The Palomares League features the Ayala Bulldogs.  In addition, non-San Bernardino County schools include Bonita, Claremont, Diamond Bar, Glendora and South Hills.

2015 Boys Preview

The opening is there for the Ayala Bulldogs.  The only County team in this cross country powerhouse league has the goods to make a run at the title in 2015.  Claremont rolled to an easy victory, but they lost 4 of their 7 from that team and they have a coaching change to deal with as Rob Lander moves over to kick off the Chaffey College program.  The Wolfpack is usually deep, so you can't count them out, but Ayala is solid and backed it up with a solid track season.  Gavin Bradley really improved, running 4:19 in the 1600 and he has mid 15 minute credentials at Mt. SAC coming into the season.  Steven Khan has run 15:51 to establish himself as a solid #2 runner for the Bulldogs.  After that, there will be a battle of 5 to fill the scoring 5.  Both Jacob Axton and Boris Zeissing broke 10 minutes in the 3200 in the Spring.  Ayala will have to watch their back as Bonita brings back 6 from their CIF qualifying team and traditional power Glendora.

2015 Girls Preview

As good as Ayala is going to be, and they will be very good, they may be fighting for 2nd place in 2015.  Claremont won the league with 24 points and they bring back 6 of their 7.  The Wolfpack finished 7th at the State Meet and all 5 of their scorers were underclassmen.  The Bulldogs reached CIF Finals and return 5 of their 7.  Defending league champion Sydney Tullai reaches her final season and is the top returner, running 17:47 at league finals held at Mt. SAC last year.  Zen Hatcher ran 18:45 and then you are looking at 4 more sub-20 minute runners for Ayala.  Not part of those 5 returners from their post-season is Ashlyn Barajas, who ran 11:35 and 5:18 in the distance events this past track season.  They are traditionally deep and powerful and 2015 will be no exception.  Bonita finished a distant 3rd and should again as they return 4 of their 7.
