Cross Country: Not cutting corners

Home Sports Cross Country: Not cutting corners
Williams, Colusa, and Pierce all came together to run the hills of the Arbuckle Golf Course on Oct. 2 for a 5k cross country meet.

Of the 10 schools to participate, Colusa County’s teams placed. Boys varsity for Colusa came in first and Williams came in fourth. For girls varsity, Williams came in second. For JV, the boys at Pierce were first and Colusa was second. JV girls from Colusa were second place and Pierce was third.

Tony Hermann, cross country coach for Williams, is not concerned about times, pointing out that one of his students finished two minutes earlier than the practiced time. 

“They gave their best effort,” said Hermann. “That’s what I enjoy about our kids and our sport, they come out here and have fun; it doesn’t matter where you finish.”

Despite the fun, varsity runner Keith Chavez, from Colusa, came in boys third place with a time of 19:06.39 and Pierce’s Ari Sanchez ran 23:57.33 to garner girls second place. 

JV teams were equally impressive. Joel Magallon made Pierce proud with a boys first place after he ran 13:30.35. Third place for girls was Colusa’s Lupita Perez, at 17:04.08, when she crossed the finish line. 

Considering the terrain of the course, Williams’ placement overall as a school took extra practice. 

“We don’t have a lot of hills in Williams,” said Hermann. “The only hill is at the football stadium or over the I-5 overpass, and then we’ll do intervals on the football field where we sprint the straightaways and walk the end zones.” ■
