Ruane, Chao Crack 14 Minutes, Lead Girls' FS to 4th Place at Ed Sias Invite
Hannah Ruane (18) continued her rapid improvement with a 9th place finish in the frosh soph girls' division at Saturday's 30th edition of the Ed Sias Invitational. Her time ranked 5th overall for the Cougar girls and helped her squad to 4th place.
Knocking 58 seconds off her mark from just a week ago, Isabella Chao (18) crossed the line in 13:55 in spite of the warm conditions on the Hidden Valley course. Katy Ly (17) was 3rd for the underclassmen, contributing a lifetime best performance.
In the junior varsity girls' race Kristy Chiang (15) showed big progress, finishing the 2.0 mile course in 17:21, 40 seconds faster than her practice meet effort.
The varsity girls, without a few of their regular starters, still managed a runner-up team score in the small school division. Robin Powell (16) rallied from back stiffness earlier in the week to take on the number 4 spot for the Cougars while Sarah Shipway (16) finished the point tally in 36th place overall.
The biggest improvement of the day came from frosh competitor Thibault Gourlin (18), who made up 1:48 over his pervious best. Bryan Kikugawa (18), Jacob Noyes (18) and Connor Mathews (18) also clobbered their PR's by a minute or more as the boys' frosh squad earned a 4th place team standing.
Jared Yabu (17) and Gabriel Valverde-Turner (17) provided a powerful 1-2 punch to help the frosh soph boys' team to a 3rd place team finish. Yabu was the 4th fastest Campolindo competitor of the day across all divisions, finishing in 11:09.
The varsity boys, led again by Jonathan Semenza (16), scored 124 points to place 4th behind section rivals Bishop O'Dowd, Miramonte and Las Lomas.
