Continuing their winning streak from last year’s championship season, the OVS girls’ cross country team put on a dominating performance to win its league opener Wednesday at Dunn School.
Leading the OVS girls, senior Avery Colborn won her first-ever cross country race, finishing more than a minute ahead of her nearest competitor and setting a new course record.
Following her were junior Bella Slosberg, who finished second, and senior Angela Qu, who placed fifth.
“The girls did exactly what I thought they would — they’ve been working hard and on Wednesday we saw the fruits of that labor,” coach Fred Alvarez said. “And I’m especially happy for Avery. It’s a big deal to win a cross country meet, and it was a highlight for me to see Avery take that win.”
Following his success from last week, junior Gabe Weisiger was the top runner for the boy’s race, placing eleventh overall. Senior Corbin Muller and junior Ethan Gao also showed strong performances.
Next week, the team has back-to-back meets, starting with a friendly race at Cate on Wednesday and a non-league meet with the Omega League on Thursday in Santa Clarita.Share
