Coming off an impressive victory at the San Diego CIF sectional championships it appeared that Jake Ruzevick was ready for a breakthrough race at the state championships. However the next day he came down with a nasty cold that worsened throughout the week and prevented him from making the trip to Fresno last Saturday. Hopefully he’ll recover enough for the Footlocker regionals this Saturday at Mt. SAC. Our other state qualifier, freshman Ben Enowitz, got a taste of just how intense cross country is at this level and placed 139th with a time of 18:21over the 5k Woodward Park course during a rainstorm. Now that the cross country season is officially over the many of our athletes are already looking toward the spring track season. If anyone is interested in joining an off-season track club to prepare for the upcoming season and get in a few all-comers meets, give me a call at 435-3633. This isn’t just for long distance runners as we coach everything from hurdles to the pole vault.
