Crossing the Country without Crossing the Country

Running through the course and leading the pack, Mallory Jenne crosses the finish line and emerges as the top Frosh-Soph girl in the league. Mallory Jenne, freshman, and Seanna Fess, sophomore, are two of the best Frosh-Soph girl runners in the league and have a shot of competing at CCS. “It’s fun to see all the courses and sites this year. I like the people here they are really nice and supportive, and I would definitely recommend it to my friends because it’s fun and great conditioning for track,” said Mallory.

Cross Country practice is monday through friday from 3:30 to 5:30. Every week the practices range from speed and track workouts to long runs like the 10 mile bridge run. PAL League meets are generally on Tuesdays and Thursdays where SMHS Cross Country competes with hundreds of aspiring runners from other schools.

Our Cross Country team is one of the smallest in the league with only 14 members. Cross Country involves dedication and hard-work but it pays off in the end. “Its a good way to test if you can actually run or not, and your endurance and strength. I would recommend it to all my friends,” said Jude Concepcion, freshman.

The Cross Country team has two captains, Meshawn Ware, senior, and Sebastian Lee, senior. The captains are the best people to get advice and knowledge of the team from. “Its pretty challenging and we have new faces this year. As captains we have to give the message to them that it’s a hard-working sport and you need to teach them that they need to bring their A-Game every day in order to succeed,” said Sebastian Lee, senior.

Cross Country has two coaches, head coach, Ed Riley, and a brand new coach this season, Carrie Peralta, or Coach Pixie. She was a former long-distance track coach and is pushing cross country runners beyond their limits, preparing them well for competition. “Cross Country is progressing as expected. We have two major standouts right now. Mallory is #1 in the league. Even though she’s a freshman she ranks very high in varsity, and the boys are doing well as expected. It’s going to be a great season,” said Ed Riley, head coach of the Cross Country team.

You can typically find the Cross Country team everyday after school at Coyote Point Park, the track or Ryder Park. It is not too late to join and Cross Country would love to have you join the team, so swing by the track after school if interested.
