The cross country team had their first dual meet of the season last Tuesday with newly re-opened Lincoln High School. It was more of a workout than a meet, however, as the Hornets defaulted both the boy’s and the girl’s races because they couldn't field the requisite 5 runners for either team.
A positive note for the Islanders was the return of Michael Davies, one of our Top 3 runners from last season and a two-time All-Central League performer. Michael was back in the line-up after being unable to train for several months due to health-related issues.
Saturday several Islanders ran in the Central Park Invitational in Huntington Beach. Coco O'Brien and Selina Schmeck finished 24th and 38th respectively out of 215 finishers in the Division II Frosh/Soph race. Sallie Privett finished ninth overall, and the second sophomore to complete the race, in the Girls Division II Varsity race.
