Fall 2016

Cross Country

The Cate Cross Country are programs rooted in a deep history of distance running and success. Both teams are perennial qualifiers for CIF competition and they compete in the Tri-Valley League, one of the best leagues in all of California and home to both state and national champion runners. The Mesa Course is one of the most well-known running loops in the area which includes the infamous Heartbreak Hill climb in the middle of the route. Whether a beginner or a highly seasoned runner, the coaching staff works to inspire a life long love of running, developing each individual into competitive distance runners and while appreciating and improving their own personal achievements.

Cross Country at CIF Prelims

The Cate boys’ cross country team had a good day at the CIFSS Prelims in Riverside on Saturday, November 12, finishing 6th in their heat and qualifying for the finals on Saturday, November 19.

The boys came into the meet with three goals, beating Dunn and Midland, their old rivals from the Condor League who were in their race, and qualifying for the finals; the Rams accomplished all three with a flourish. The Rams were led by co-captain Kyril Van Schendel ’18, who won the heat in 15:55, the fastest Divison 5 time overall on the day. Ian MacFarlane ’18 had another strong race, placing 31st in 18:01, followed closely by co-captain Henry Walsh ’17, 40th in 18:14. Josh Shields ’19 was 48th in 18:34, and Sean Busse ’20 had perhaps his best race of the season, finishing 59th in 19:09.
