On Saturday, November 17th, 2018, CdM’s Varsity cross country team had competed in the CIF-Finals race. This course was located in Riverside, California and the runners were up bright and early to be on schedule. On race days, they arrive about an hour or more prior to the start of their race time to properly stretch, warm up and to get their jerseys and shoes fully ready for takeoff.

To make it to this race, the team first had to qualify with their results of the CIF-Prelims race, which took place the week before. Their placing, finishing times and incredible effort had qualified them to compete in the finals.

The Riverside course is unlike any other terrain they had experienced in the whole season, as seeing that cross country races are mainly comprised of hills and a rougher route. This course is flat, but the heat, lack of moisture and dust are factors that truly affect the runners performance, therefore they become prepared for this course by having the benefit of completing it three times. The first race completed there for this season was on October 20th, and was titled the Riverside Invitational. The team then returned for prelims and finals.

The girls had placed 11th in the D3 (smaller schools) division, and the boys had placed 9th place. One of CdM’s Varsity girls placed second out of the whole D3 girls race, which is a wonderful accomplishment. They performed very well and just missed the cutoff to qualify for the state championships in Fresno this coming weekend. However, it was the varsity senior’s last cross country race, and they truly ended it with a bang.
