Cross Country

Half Moon Bay High School’s fourth-place ranking at the Peninsula Athletic League cross-country finals enabled the boys and girls teams to compete at the Central Coast Section championship race at Crystal Springs on Saturday. It was a challenging, 3-mile, up- and downhill course, but one the team was familiar with.

The girls team ran first. With the combined efforts of every runner, they were able to overtake both San Lorenzo and Sacred Heart by four crucial points to secure a third-place team finish. Scotts Valley and Carmel placed first and second respectively, with all three teams earning a spot at the California Interscholastic Federation state finals on Nov. 26 in Fresno.
