The team is now ranked 5th in Northern California and will advance The team will now advance to the Nor-Cal Championships to be held on November 3, 2007.

Our men finished 4th out of a field of 20 teams. The men were the 1st team in LPC history to rank 1st in our conference in a large meet like this one (4th in the meet overall, yet 1st team in from our Coast Conference). Joey Nunes (Liv. HS) again earned a shirt for top 14 and he moved into the 2nd fastest spot on the all-time list for the SF course. Tristan Blair (Cal HS) at 22:27 and Jag Kalirai (Dublin HS) at 22:47 set PRs (personal record) for the four miles. Times for the September 27, 2007 race:

9th JOEY NUNES SO LAS POSITAS 20:59 5:12 per mile
18 IVAN MEDINA FR LAS POSITAS 21:28 5:19
24 JUAN GOMEZ SO LAS POSITAS 21:39 5:22

Crystal Springs

This past weekend, at the Crystal Springs Invite, our men finished in 6th spot without our 5th man, Ross Mollenkompf, running.. Juan Gomez (Dublin Hi) had a great race as he finished in a time of 22:14, on a very hilly course that is 4.19 miles long (this probably adds a min. to his time). This is 5:26 per mile, again on a hilly course. Of the 137 competitors, we had four runners in the top 30. Parris Hodges again ran a great and determined race. Her 19:50 moves her into second fastest on the "all time list" for LPC (Lynn Pidoli has a 19:40 on Nov. 6, 2004). She finished in 6th spot and is currently ranked 6th in Northern Cal. We look forward to running in the Conference Meet, Nor Cal Meet and the State Meet. You can see our schedule @ LPC's web site. The group of men we have can be the fastest team we have ever had at LPC. We did finish 7th in Nor Cal prior to this and Jerron Clarke was 1st in conference two years ago and 3rd in north. But, this team could and should be our best ever and all but one is a freshman.
