After lengthy delays waiting for clearance of athletes' physicals, the Mustang harriers took to the trails on Sept 12 at the Renfree Challenge. Limited practices made for sub-par times, however the results were not bad.
Top performers for the Mustangs were Chase Peterson in the Frosh-Soph race with a 9th place finish, covering the 2.1 mile course in 15:29.
In the varsity girls competition, sophomore Anna Chmil covered the 3 mile course in 27:38, good for 8th place, while not far behind was junior Chaidez Santos in 11th with a time of 29:27.
In the varsity boys race, Leo Ochoa led the way with a 6th place finish in 19;14 over the 3 miles, Jarred Reinhard 14th (21:35), Jonathan Coleman 15th(22:08) and Antonio Zambrano 19th (23:52) followed.
On Sept. 18, the team traveled to Bear River for the first league meet. Again the limited practice time came into play, but again the runners competed hard.
In the Frosh-Soph race, Freshman Ramonin Carnejo finished 29th with a time of 17:16 over the 2 mile course.
The varsity girls race followed with Anna Chmil again leading the way with a 21st place showing in 28:20 over the 5k course. She was followed by Chaidez Santos (24th, 29:12); Amy Blunt (45th, 39:29) and Destiny Boers (46th, 39:30).
Varsity boys closed out the day's competition with Jonathan Coleman leading the Mustangs, covering the 5k in 23:10, good for 24th place. Coming in behind Jonathan were Jarred Reinhard (26th, 23:25); sophomore Chase Peterson (32nd, 26:21); freshman Kyle Guenther (37th, 27:27); Steve Acebo (39th, 28:57) and Chris Newman (43rd, 34:22).
Standings after first meet:
Varsity Boys--Placer 5-0; Colfax 4-1; Center 3-2; Lincoln 2-3; Foothill 1-4; Bear River 0-5
Varsity Girls--Placer 5-0; Bear River 4-1; Lincoln 3-2; Colfax 2-3; Foothill 0-4-1 and Center 0-4-1
The next meet will be the inaugural Foothill Showcase to be held at Foothill High School. The meet will start and finish in the stadium. We are hoping to have two or three teams join the Mighty Mustangs. Invites have been sent out to Highlands, Rio Linda, Mesa Verde, Mira Loma, and Center. Come out and see four exciting races; Frosh-Soph girls at 3:30, F/S boys 4:00; Varsity Girls 4:30 and Varsity boys at 5:00.
