The Castilleja varsity cross country team had the exciting opportunity of being the first Castilleja athletic team to compete in the 2020-2021 school year on March 8th! This Casti Fasti team went on the road to compete in a meet hosted by Harker, and they certainly did not disappoint in their effort and results. Not only did Castilleja student-athletes finish in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th place individually, but as a team they won the meet, beating both Harker and TKA in points.
Sophomore, Dani H. ’23, finished first for the Gators (second overall) and set a PR, shaving 1:20 min off her previous best 5k time. Following a few seconds behind was freshman, Perry M. ’24, in her first competition for the upper school cross country team. Next was Samira K ’23 in fourth place and Olivia S. ’24 in sixth. Full results can be found here.
This team will compete again on Saturday, March 20th in a meet hosted by Menlo. There they will get the chance to compete against both Menlo and Sacred Heart!
