The KSJC Girls Cross Country Team competed in the Central Coast Section Division 5 Finals yesterday at Toro Park.  The air conditions had cleared enough for medical personnel to deem the course safe after relocating the meet to Salinas instead of Belmont.  Most teams hadn’t practiced in two weeks so the race was bound to be interesting.  The KSJC Girls ran their best and represented the school well at the meet.  This marked the third consecutive time that the KSJC Girls qualified for the CCS Division 5 Finals, and it will be their last time in that division as the school moves up to Division 4 next year.  Congratulations to the boys and their great season!  Results are listed below:
