Saturday the Sun Warriors began the 2015 cross country season in earnest. The girls team picked up right where they left off at the end of the 2014 season placing second behind only Whitney Young. Leading the way for the ladies was senior Maria Garcia, completing the 3.2 mile race in a time of 22:56, placing fourth overall. Also running exceptionally strong was sophomore Jocelyn Lara in her debut for the Sun Warriors.
The boys followed suit led by freshman Brandon Galicia. His nineteenth place finish was the best performance by any freshmen at the meet. Securing the team score for the boys was sophomore Osvaldo Vasquez, closing the back door as the team’s fifth man. Although not at full strength, the boys were still able to pull out an eight place team finish. Congratulations to both teams, and good luck this coming weekend at Reavis!
