Girls Cross Country placed 11th out of 32 teams at the Stanford Invitational meet, while Boys Cross Country placed 30th out of 38. Most notably, Cecilia Langlois (Soph.) placed 16th out of 226 runners in Division 1.

Langlois ran a 18:54 minute 5K, while the fastest runner from the boys team was Christian Go (Jr.), who placed 127th out of 259. “It was just awesome seeing everybody run a good race. I look forward to seeing how the team improves through the season,” Go said when asked about his performance. He ran the 5K course in 17:41 minutes.

“I think we were just expecting to do our best.” Madeleine Boschen (Jr.) said. “We weren’t expecting to be the fastest but definitely not the slowest either.” The boys team averaged 17:57 minutes while the girls averaged 20:06.

The meet was held at Stanford University in Palo Alto on October 1st, and only the varsity team attended. League finals will be held on November 3rd at Mason Park.
