Rosiak Leads FS to Victory at Roughrider
With a strong push at the half-way point, Jessica Rosiak (21) moved passed several of her teammates to claim "top gun" status in the frosh soph girls' race at Saturday's Roughrider Invitational on Woodward Park's 2.1 mile course. Rosiak, who finished 3rd overall, was at the front of a train of teammates who swarmed the 1st 10 finishing places.
Mia Travis (20), Sydney Roberts (21) and Gracie Woidat (21) crossed the finish line in 4th, 5th and 6th place, respectively. Bianca Pierrat (20), who led the Cougars early on with a strong start, completed the scoring in 8th place. The 14:39 clocking for Travis was an improvement over her 2016 Roghrider Performance by a minute and 34 seconds.
The varsity girls' squad also claimed a meet title, scoring just 28 points in the small school division. Jenna Miles (18) and Isabella Chao (18) again provided the tip of the spear, running side-by-side through the first 2 miles. Miles would eventual surge to the win in 18:09 for the full 5 kilometers, an improvement over her previous course best by 1 minute and 29 seconds.
In her 1st test of the Woodward Park 5k course, Alicia Hober (20) took over the number 3 position for the squad to land 5th place overall. Her finishing time of 19:19 is the 30th best mark on the course by a Campolindo harrier.
Arik Nashan (21) was the top frosh soph boys finisher for the Cougars, overtaking teammate Evan Yabu (21) mid-race. Chris Ruane (21) also showed improvement, moving up to the #3 position for the squad.
Running 45 seconds faster than his debut on the course, and 2 seconds faster than his 2016 state meet personal best, Edward Buckley (19) battled with the leaders for much of the race. Owen Hunger (20) used an aggressive start to sneak under the 17 minute barrier while Dylan Gunn (21) rocketed though the final mile to earn an 11th place finish in 16:49.
Dyaln Cronin (10) continued his rise to claim the final scoring spot for the team.
