Boys Varsity Cross Country · Boys Varsity XC Sets KSJC School Record for Fastest Team Time at PSAL 3, Finishes 3rd on Tiebreaker


On Tuesday afternoon, the KSJC Boys Varsity Team competed in PSAL 3, and set the school record for the fastest team time in school history on the boys side with an average time of 19:21.  KSJC finished 3rd in what was an extremely close race that took all 7 KSJC runners to surpass LCPA and take 3rd.  Josue Martinez led the way, taking 8th place with a time of 18:16.  Cristian Becerra and Fabian Gonzalez came in shortly after in 13th and 14th place, with Gonzalez turning in his personal record on the day.  Jose Romero broke the 20 minute barrier he’s been working towards, placing 23rd with a time of 19:58.

The team strength comes from the strength of all seven runners on the team and that was on display with the final three runners yesterday.  Anthony Phung, Carlos Alvarez, and Ramon Valencia all finished in the top 32 last night, all finishing in under 20:30 on the day, a personal record for all three runners.  Valencia took a point off LCPA by finishing ahead of their 5th runner.  Phung was the 5th scoring runner for KSJC that put them into a tie with LCPA on points, and Alvarez (KSJC’s 6th runner) outpaced LCPA’s sixth runner, earning them the tiebreaker.  It was an incredible performance on the day.  Check out the results.
