Gila Ridge senior
Jesus was the only Gila Ridge boys runner to qualify for the Division II state meet, where he finished 104th overall. His season also included a second-place finish at districts, a 24th-place finish at sectionals and a 5-kilometer PR of 17:09 at Nike Desert Twilight.
Coach Caleb VanderBaan:
“Jesus not only set high goals this year, but he followed through with the work ethic necessary to achieve those goals and take the next step to becoming one of the best runners in the city.”
