Today, the SDFAS girls and boys cross-country teams had their second meet at La Jolla Shores. The race was 1.5 miles long, with 7 middle schools represented, and over 80 runners!
Maxine Arambulo (8th grade) led the way for the girls, coming in second place out of 38 runners and was awarded the silver medal (7th/8th division)! Adriana Telenti (7th grade) and Chloe Gross (6th grade) finished in the top 10, and placed 3rd in their respective age divisions. Amazing! As a team, the girls ran strong and stole FIRST PLACE from Encinitas Country Day by 5 points!
On the boys side, Robin Nicoli ran an unbelievable race, finishing in FIRST PLACE out of 43 boys. This was the first time a SDFAS boy finished first in history! Bravo, Robin! The boys were also led by Georges Perbost and Tristan Cousin, who both finished in the top 15. The boys team placed 2nd overall, the best finish in over 2 seasons!
