The CIF Committee overseeing the sport of Cross Country made it official.  As much as a shock this may be for those outside 'the circle of trust' the rundown, forgotten abandoned golf course near downtown Riverside will be the site of the 2015 CIF Prelims.  The course committee plans on hosting an invitational (2.25 miles) on this course on September 5th while also hosting another invite on Saturday, October 24th.  Of course, this upcoming November will be the real show where all five divisions will compete at the CIF Prelims!   There is also a slight chance it may also host the following weeks' finals.  But, the plan here is that the Riverside City Golf Course will be the site of the 2016 and 2017 CIF Postseason where all teams in the Southern Section will run through this course en route to a possible state meet berth!

Great Oak Girls Take 2nd place at NXN

Posted by Mark Gardner at Dec 7, 2014 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )

In what had been their target all season long, Great Oak's girls performed brilliantly to take 2nd place at the 2014 Nike Cross Team Nationals.  Winning for the 9th time in 10th years, Fayetteville Manilius captured the Girls' Title once again.  FM was able to put all five scorers into an 11 second window to seal the deal.  But, despite most California teams not performing well here in the past, Great Oak finished the highest of any California squad in the history of this meet.  While finishing with a 39 second scoring gap, junior Destiny Collins led the way with her 18:31 time on the tough Oregon course.  In the top five squads, they all graduate two scorers while Great Oak will return all of their scorers in 2014 and expect to be even stronger in the future.
