On Friday, October 4th, 2019, our running Royals traveled to the Palos Verdes Peninsula to run one of the hardest cross country courses in the state against some of the top runners in California.
They hurdled hay bales and climbed the hill nicknamed “Agony Hilly.” The 2 mile race featured a unique format of separate races for each team member, which meant our #1 runner would go head to head with the other #1 runners from competing schools, and boys and girls would start together on the line. Top three performances came from Kaydee Inouye, Liz Cruz, and Kristen Huber, and our top JV runner of the day was freshman Charlotte Song. Kaydee’s time of 13:00 over the challenging 2 mile course earned her a 6th place finish and a medal in a field dominated by Division I teams. Next week, the squad returns to Crescenta Valley Park to compete in the second league meet of the season. Good luck Royals!
