In the previous years, the boys’ Cross Country team have always ran in the 4a division. In 2013, the boys did not think they would win the State Championship, but they ended up getting good results and winning the title. With that accomplishment, the boys started to work harder and train intensely to win the state title again. Sadly, they came short and got runner-up the following year. Then in 2015, the boys’ took a devastating loss and got fourth place. This year the Cross Country team moved up to 5a which is a tougher division, so the boys would have to work even harder to get better results.

Saturday, October 29, 2016, was the State Championship meet. The big day had finally come for the Cross Country boys team. They raced at Edmond Santa Fe at 10:45 in the morning. The weather was sunny but windy, so it would be a little more difficult to run against the wind. The seven runners who ran for Santa Fe South Cross Country team were:

26th place- Juan Sanchez (Junior)

32nd place- Israel Concha (Sophomore)

47th place- David Gonzalez (Freshman)

57th place- Chris Santos (Senior)

60th place- Eduardo Flores (Senior)

84th place- Hector Gonzalez (Sophomore)

87th place- Maximino Diaz (Freshman)

 

The average time of the team was an 18:03 for the 5k and with a total of 178 points. The team that won first place was Guymon with a total of 43 points. With this outcome, the team wants to push harder for next year.

In the future, both the boys and girls team want to get to state and get amazing results. Since the boys have already a taste of the 5a State meet, they will be more comfortable and confident in running next year. On the other hand, they will have tough competition with new runners working just as hard. It was distressing for the girls when they did not qualify for the state meet. Most girls on the team had never gone to a state race, so for next year they want to condition harder and get to state. The team will train all summer long to prepare themselves for the upcoming season. We wish the best of luck to both teams!
