The girls routed both the Pride and the Gauchos to run their league record to The varsity boys achieved similar results, placing the first 10 runners ahead of all others, to win by 35 points. The boys, led by the return of sophomore Mickey Tessema, crossed 7 runners ahead of all others to win big.
The girls managed the first 5 spots in their race to win by If the regular season has provided an accurate picture of the talent and depth of the league, look for the Panthers to run their way to many of the top spots at the TCAL finale. On Friday, the varsity squads traveled to Southern California to compete in the venerable Mt. The meet, held at Mount San Antonio junior college, routinely features the top teams from around the southland and around the Golden State. Due to a 7 runner limit in the varsity race, the boys entered 2 races… the regular varsity race as well as a junior varsity race.
While the varsity race was competitive early, the junior varsity race was hardly a race, with the Panthers racing out to an early lead to post a dominant win! Leading the way was senior Patrick Mariolle, whose 9th place finish earned him individual honors.
Jovani Barajas ran his best race of the season, according to Coach Rogers, placing 12th and taking home an individual medal.
Guy Forte finished 17th, an excruciating two spots out of the medals. Needless to say, racing the best Southern California teams on their home course is no easy task. Racing here at Mt. Sac is always tough. The heat, the hills and our unfamiliarity with the course puts us at a disadvantage. After that, the Panthers will take on the best from the North Coast Section at the Meet of Champions in mid-November, followed by the crown jewel of all meets: The California State Championships.
Come out and support the Panthers as the championship season begins. The boys varsity team and both JV teams also posted convincing wins. With the venerable duo of Spencer Moore and Chloe Jenkins leading the way, the Panthers talent, depth and determination are proving to be too much for most opponents, including the upstart Bruins.
Josie Smale also ran a tough race, coming from way behind in the last mile, passing St. Natalia Riccardi and Izzy Havens both broke the The varsity boys, running short-handed due to injury and illness, still placed 9 runners in the top 10 while running away to 3 dominant victories.
Up front was senior Patrick Mariolle, whose Jovani Barajas placed 3rd overall, running a fine Zach ran under Those are big accomplishments for those two guys. The boys, on the other hand, were in a race. However, pride, determination and lots of spirited encouragement from their teammates and coaches helped the group move up and past their competition… on their way to a well-deserved victory.
Daniel Beeman ran a terrific race for his first career win. In all though, this entire group ran the race of the day and earned themselves plenty of praise and commendation from their coaches.

The first race is the JV girls race at 3: Come out and support the Panthers as they close out their league season. More than 40 state-ranked teams arrived on Saturday, hoping to test themselves and maybe get a state meet preview on this, the site of the state championships in late November.
Warm temperatures and fast competition greeted the runners at the start. The Clovis atmosphere can be daunting so for the JV girls, their Still, sophomore Gabi Brito, in her first ever 5K race, cracked the Amanda Keith and Izzy Havens rounded out the scoring for the 4th place Panthers, who finished ahead of several teams ranked in their respective sections of California.
For the boys, Stanford had been a bit of a disappointment, so for the past week this team has been stewing. Saturday was a day of redemption and fulfillment, as the boys team out-distanced several top teams on its way to a 6th place finish in the Small School Varsity division. Patrick Mariolle continues to lead the team, running Junior Josh Dull ran the best race of his Panther career, finishing just behind Patrick in Vincent, Hercules and Pinole Valley.
The first race begins at 3: Come out and support the Panthers! Entering the meet, prognosticators would have made both JV and Varsity boys teams heavy favorites… while giving the Albany girls a realistic chance of upsetting the defending league champions. Both boys races ran according to form.
And on this day, the Lady Panthers ran rough-shot on the dope sheets. From the opening gun, the Panthers ran to the front, extended their leads, and scored convincing wins against the Cougars, Eagles and Dons. The Junior Varsity girls began the meet with a narrow, hard-fought win to improve their league record to Leading the win was sophomore Gabi Brito, who covered the 1. Freshmen Ella May The Junior Varsity Boys echoed the girls win with one of their own, but unlike the girls, their win was achieved in dominant fashion.
Because the varsity races were limited to 12 runners, Josh Dull ran his first junior varsity race in two years. Predictably, he cruised to a 30 second win. Junior Tony Lawson, in his best race of the year, followed in Michael Blanco, Daveon Sadusky, and Gio Ricondo finished the scoring for the Panthers who placed 8 runners amongst the first The Varsity Boys, facing a depleted and rebuilding Albany squad, scored the first 10 places in a lopsided 35 point win.
The Varsity Girls race, curiously scheduled as the finale, signaled to the rest of the league that un-seating the defending champions is going to take a Herculean effort. The Lady Panthers, already strong and who seem to be improving by the week, dismantled the challenge posed by the Cougars while running to a convincing 21 win.
Spencer Moore won the race, followed by a come-from-behind 2nd place finish from Chloe Jenkins. Josie Smale and Natalia Riccardi finished 4th and 5th respectively, while Lianne McKinney ran her best race of the season while finishing 9th. Izzy, Caitlin and Ella ran great today because of the pace Lianne set. Overall, the Panthers, once again, were impressive.

Good distance running requires not only a lot of work… but and a LOT of determination and desire to want to succeed. Congratulations to the Panthers for a fine effort! Check out the new additions to the Panthers Cross Country Website!
For the boys, the champions of the meet, this year would be invaluable as well as humbling. Facing powerhouse teams from inside and out of the Golden State, the youth, nerves and relative inexperience of this group showed.
The girls, meanwhile, came home from Portland with a multitude of stories and a 2nd place finish! It is exactly what I hoped for and expected from them.
Overall, all the runners had great experiences this past weekend. Running against local competition on local courses asks one thing. Taking on top flight teams on unfamiliar courses in different cities asks other questions. Good job to all the runners this weekend!2011 High School Cross Country State Meet Div.2 California
The first race features the JV Girls 3: Come on out and support the Panthers this week! To say the least, the meet would certainly serve as a barometer for the Panther squad. Hoping to provide answers, the Panthers returning all-state performer Spencer Moore made a bold statement in winning the girls varsity race.
From the opening gun, Spencer raced to the lead… steadily pulled away from the other runners… and finally finished the 3. Following Spencer was Chloe Jenkins, whose Seeking respect on the increasingly competitive NCS Division IV scene, the defending champion boys varsity boys team showed they are no push-overs with a spirited performance of their own. Senior Patrick Mariolle led the way with a respectable Sophomore Mickey Tessema, also running for the first time at Hayward, broke the Reilly Keith ran the best race of his young, freshman season, as did Carlos Martin del Campo and another freshman, Luis Ybarra.
Overall, the Panthers proved that, no matter the course, competition or race conditions, they will show up and compete… with much success. The race featured a special award called the "Golden Anchor," given to the top four number five runners in each race. The race saw the introduction of an eighth man race, which was held before the main event races, and in combined with the open race. An Open Race was new to the event, with 30 top boys and girls from around the country given the chance to compete as a team on the national level; however, they did not qualify and therefore Nike did not provide their expenses or clothing.
Also new to was a revision of the course. On December 2, a Kenyan boys' team and a Kenyan girls' team were also flown in to partake in the open events; the teams dominated the North American course and showed spectators a whole new view of racing.
Along with the two teams from each region that make it to NXN, Nike will also take the next five individuals from each region and they will also be able to compete in the same race, just without a team.
