Boys Win Roughrider Small School Race; Clare Leads Improvements over 2017
Improving by 1 minute and 16 seconds over his 2.1 mile performance in 2017, Alex Clare (21) placed 20th in the frosh soph boys' small school division of the 2018 Roughrider Invitational on Friday. Clare was the 4th Campolindo finisher in the race, helping his squad edge ahead of Laguna Beach for the team title.
Alan Pierrat (21), who ran a career best pace of 5:37 per mile, was the top finisher for the Cougars in the frosh soph race. On the heels of Pierrat's 5th place were Arik Nashan (21) and Alec Driver (21), who finished 7th and 9th, respectively.
Alexander Ly (21) closed out the scoring for the sophomore heavy squad in 29th place, crossing the finish line in 12:54. The 6:09 per-mile pace is nearly equal to Ly's finishing time in last year's 1600m time trial.
The varsity boys were bolstered by the continued mid-season surge of Dylan Cronin (20). The junior closed down the gap to his squad's 2nd-place finisher Cayden Hein (20) to just 7 seconds, finishing 5th overall and 31 seconds ahead of his time from 1 year ago.
With several veteran scorers sidelined with injury, Marco Chao (22) and Owen Lekki (21) took advantage of the opportunity to earn a varsity spot. In his debut at the 5k distance, Chao used a bold start and consistent effort through the final mile to land the final scoring position for the Cougars. Lekki closed well to finish 6th for the squad in 17:03.
With Edward Buckley (19) taking the individual victory, the varsity boys' team placed 3 scorers in the top 5, and 5 in the top 15 of the small-school division. The squad's team time of 82:53 is just ahead of the 82:56 team time posted by the varsity boys in their 5th-place effort at the 2017 state championships.
Natalie Arnswald (19) provided the highlight for the varsity girls, improving over her 2017 Roughrider performance by 1 minute and 27 seconds to finish 91st in the 205 runner field.
