Cross Country MMC Meet

By Rahul Walia, Reporter

This week’s cross country meet was one of the best meets this season by far, due to the fact that the JV girls/boys and Varsity girls/boys took 2nd place as a team. The cross country meet was at East La Loma Park, which is a much easier and faster course. The reason why this race was faster and easier than other courses was because this park doesn’t have any hills or rocky terrain. Most of the cross country runners for Modesto High improved their times significantly from their previous race. Many of the people decided to group up to push either during the run and improve their times. Josue Perez, a runner on the varsity team, finished at 3rd place. Overall, the coaches were proud of the whole team for their effort, but said that we also have a lot of work to do such as surging, which is running faster for a small period of time to pass up another runner.  Another thing that the team needs to work on during practice is speed, to finish the last 600 meters of a race. Nevertheless, Modesto High’s cross country team had a great meet and is looking forward to their invite at Half Moon Bay.
