Although the AIPHS Cross Country Teams endured a long layoff due to the cancellation of their previous league meet as a result of the North Bay Fires, the JV Boys and Girls Cross Country teams were able to shake off the dust with first place finishes in their 3-mile race at the Raiders Regional Meet at the Alameda Shoreline Park.
Coached by Coach Jard Davis, the boys JV team finished in seven of the top ten slots, including a first through fifth finishes by AIPHS students Samuel Weller, Emerson Velasquez, Rafael Castellano, Travis Carroll, and Kyle Wu, respectively. In similar fashion, the girls JV team also finished in seven of the top ten slots by Ophelia Wang (1), Yem Pham (2), Donna Ng (3), Emmy Su (5), Mei Yi Jiang (6), Esmerelda Magdaleno (7), and Ji Da Be Sa (8).
Up next, both JV Boys and Girls teams will look to earn first place in the BACSAC Cross Country Championships, this Saturday, November 4, 2017, at Skyline High School, in Oakland, CA, at 1:15PM.
