CHS Cross Country Squad Off to Strong Start
Sallie Privett has been running away from middle school competition since fifth grade. In her high school debut last Friday evening at the Wolfpack invite in Santee, it was no different.
Privett won the girl’s freshman race going away by 33 seconds over her nearest rival, Megan Morgan from Torrey Pines. Her time of 9:11 over the hilly 1.6-mile course translates to a pace of just under 5:45 per mile and was among the top times of the day. It was also the biggest winning margin of all of the races run Friday.
Teammate Adrianna Davies also finished very strong in the same race with a time of 10:22 for fifth place out of the 98 finishers in their event. Sheila Braun’s 30th place finish in the Senior Girls’ race gives Coronado a nice 1-2-3 punch on the girl’s side this year.
The Boys team should be strong as well. Ben Enowitz was fifth out of 117 finishers in the Boys Junior Race with a time of 11:56 over the 2.1-mile course. He was followed by Turner Stanley, Cory Couture, Jordan Vance, and Jose Tijerina.
David Grimes placed 19th out of 122 finishers in the Boys Sophomore race with a time of 12:44, followed by Ben Green. Other boys competing in the races were freshman Tim Sebring and senior Alton Smith. Junior Michael Davies, another one of the Islander’s top runners, sat this one out due to a sore quad.”
