Felt, Valverde-Turner Earn Runner-up Finishes at Shoreline Practice Meet
After just three weeks of cross country training, Riley Felt (17) matched the leader of the Rookie Girls' race until the final sprint at the Martinez Shoreline 2.1 mile course. Her second place finish was a Rookie squad best, and 6th fastest overall for the Cougar girls.
Sarah Cella (16) flashed great potential as well, finishing just behind Felt for 3rd place, and 7th best on the team.
The Rookie Boys' were lead by Gabriel Valverde-Turner (17), who showed why summer miles make a difference. The upstart freshman battled Miramonte's top gun all the way to the finish. His 12:33 clocking for 2.1 miles placed him 9th overall among Campolindo's boys.
In the veteran divisions, returning stars Brighie Leach (15) and Aidan Goltra (14) won their respective races in bold fashion.
Leach crossed the finish line over a minute ahead of her nearest competitor, while Goltra built a lead of nearly 30 seconds by the time he completed the course.
