Who's #1?: Can Anyone Beat Great Oak Boys? Dec 1, 2015

What haven't the Great Oak boys done this season? Last weekend, they set the Division I California state meet total team time record (76:09). The record was previously held by the 2010 Arcadia team. **Correction: In the video, we say that Great Oak's #5, Nelson Quintana, placed 19th. He actually placed 22nd among overall finishers and 17th in team scoring. They also are not quite undefeated this year -- they were second to Timpanogos at the Bob Firman Invitational in September.

Tony's Take: Nike Cross Nationals Is Pinnacle To A Long Season Dec 6, 2015

I once heard a trusted and well respected coach say "cross country is a short season." Much to the reality of what he said, he was right. The coach I am referring to was speaking to a group of inexperienced runners near the end of a summer camp training run. For them August through the month of October is prime cross country season.
