Last Saturday, the Islander Cross Country team finished off their season at the CIF State Meet in Fresno, CA. “As with nearly every meet this year, we didn’t have a completely healthy team,” says Coach George Green. The week prior at the CIF Finals, the girls’ team was seriously handicapped with injuries and illnesses. At the State Meet, three of the top five runners on the boys’ team were sick. However, the top finisher in the Division IV race for the Islanders was senior Connor Jaynes, running the 5k-course in 16:47 (Mile Pace: 5:23). Next was junior Cole Mullins and sophomore Grant Hawthorne, who finished with respective times of 16:59 and 17:51 over the same course. “Ailing Landon Mullins, Brad Busby, and Casey Harris were next with newcomer Cole Hutcherson our seventh,” says Coach Green.

For the Girls’ Division IV Race, two seniors had qualified the week before at the CIF Finals. Senior Teresa Perez finished in eighteenth place out of over two hundred runners, clocking a time of 18:51, followed by senior Madden Hundley, who finished in 20:24. As Perez finishes her high school cross country career, she has committed to the University of Portland and will continue to compete.

Congratulations to Islanders on an excellent season, and good luck to them in the spring, as many will compete in Track & Field.
