Nine River­bank Run­ners Qual­ify For Sec­tion Meet

Riverbank News - - SPORTS -

Bruin cross coun­try had nine in­di­vid­u­als qual­ify on to the sec­tion meet this Fri­day, but didn’t have any teams qual­ify. Run­ners trav­eled to An­gels Camp for the sub­sec­tion event at Frog­town on Satur­day, Nov. 4.

“The sec­tion has dropped so many large schools down into Divi­sion 4 that it is so im­por­tant to have depth to be able to qual­ify to sec- tions,” noted River­bank coach Monte Wood. “We were miss­ing Ju­lian Lopez, our num­ber four run­ner for the var­sity boys, due to in­jury and that hurt us a lot. We would have qual­i­fied with him, but we couldn’t risk in­jur­ing him fur­ther.”

In­di­vid­u­ally, Chris Martinez, Damian Lopez and Ra­mon Rosas all qual­i­fied in the var­sity boys race.

Isa­iah Bar­gas and Je­sus Sepul­veda qual­i­fied in the fresh­man boys race. Diane Murillo, Anas­ta­sia Toscano, and Yara Choeb qual­i­fied in the frosh/ soph girls race, and Alon­dra Her­nan­dez qual­i­fied in the var­sity girls race.

“We think go­ing into sec­tions that Alon­dra has a re­ally good shot at ad­vanc­ing to state,” Wood said. “The sec­tion race is this Fri­day (Nov. 10) at Fol­som High School.”
