Fifth Place at State!

Fifth Place at State!

The Castilleja varsity cross country team had to meet many standards to make it to the state championships that took place this past Saturday at Woodward Park in Fresno, CA. First, the team competed in three very strong West Bay Athletic League (WBAL) meets, where they finished in 2nd place each time. Next, they moved onto the Division V Central Coast Section (CCS) Championships, where they swept the competition finishing in 1st place and twenty-six points ahead of the next closest team! Because they were a top three finisher at CCS, the team moved on to the CIF California State Championships. Here they competed just as strong and finished in 5th place as a team! Top Casti runner, Tevah G., led the way with a 6th place finish individually and a personal best time.

We are so proud of all our student-athletes, and a big shout out to this incredible team for a very successful cross country season!
