Mother Lode Meet Sees Run­ners Com­pete

Escalon Times - - SPORTS -

The Escalon cross coun­try team headed to Sonora on Wed­nes­day, Sept. 20 for the an­nual Mother Lode League Meet.

“The Mother Lode League is our tough­est com­pe­ti­tion out­side of league. Last year our boys var­sity team placed fifth in the sec­tion,” ex­plained head coach Rick He­flin. “We were the most se­nior dom­i­nated team in our top seven with two se­niors. The sec­tion is very strong and very young.”

Amador and Calav­eras are two of the teams that stand in Escalon’s way of earn­ing top sta­tus in the sec­tion, He­flin noted.

“We placed third be­hind them on Wed­nes­day,” He­flin said of the place­ment be­hind Amador and Calav­eras. “We ran well and showed a lot of im­prove­ment but we know there is more work to be done. We did score well with­out two of our starters so that was awe­some.”

The JV boys team placed sec­ond be­hind Calav­eras, while the var­sity girls are look­ing stronger. Jackie Lau, Lizeth Calderon, and Marisol Aguayo keep mov­ing up in the ranks, said the coach.

This week the Cougars have their sec­ond Trans-Val­ley League Meet on Sept. 20 and the an­nual train­ing week­end.
