The Nogales cross country team made its third league meet on Thursday October 10 at Schabarum Park.

A cross country race is all about pacing oneself and staying consistent during the entire course of the race, which the Nogales Cross Country team has been executing exceptionally.

In the Mt. Sac invitational, senior  Osvaldo Cervantes broke the record, according to his racing category, by eight seconds. An average male athlete can run up to three miles in seventeen minute; however, Osvaldo ran three miles in 15 minutes and 21 seconds and Alexis Maldonado a sophomore , who was also invited to run in the Mt. Sac invitational, was able to be reach the top five female runners of the tenth grade.

Cross country coach Xavier Chavez believes the cross country season is going well: “The girls varsity team are having a good season and they might place a bit higher for CIF prelims and have a good shot making it to CIF finals and Osvaldo should be getting 2nd place for CIF finals and top 8 for CIF State.”

The season has gone by smoothly so far, and the girls’ varsity, junior-varsity teams and boys’ varsity team are currently in second place. The boys’ junior varsity team ranks third place.

The 5k running athletes have been  practicing everyday since summer break to set the bar higher for their events. Each member has been practicing after school between the current races.

Eric Navor, a freshman that joined the team this year, states how the sport is exhausting but that only inspires him to excel: “ When you are dying ,that’s when you need to push the hardest.”

This hard working team of runners in pushing their limits, practicing hard, and reaping the awards of their success.
