Final Team score Flashes 48 – 36 over Faith Baptist.

The Flashes will next travel to Santa Paula on 1/24/13 for the always hotly contested match up. Coach Ponce said that the annual match against Santa Paula “is always a tough contest”. “We’ll need to start fast and be aggressive against the Cardinals” said Coach Ponce. When asked about tonight’s victory Coach said, “We have a young team, with holes in several weight classes, but for a young team we hold our own. Tonight we needed our team leaders to step up and they did. They kept their cool and got the job done”.

Go Flashes.

In a race at the vaunted Lake Casitas that was almost too close to call the coursers of the boys varsity give it their all and narrowly miss claiming a league title while the girls ride the shoe leather express to clinch fourth place in the league. In a phenomenal effort all but one member of both varsity teams set personal course records and gave it their all to qualify for CIF prelims.

The surge of the boys was led by break out sensation Hugo Valdovinos with a 1:06 PR to finish in 3rd overall at 16:04. Anthony Rivas was 5th overall with a 54 second PR to earn a clocking of 16:14. Close on his heels was Alexander Frias in 6th with a 16:21, this was enough for a 49 second improvement this year. 8th place was Issac Gomez’s for the taking as he improved by 59 seconds over the year to clock a 16:33. Adrian Mejia rounded out the top 10 and was the fifth Flash as he improved by 31 seconds to record a 16:38. Displacing the competition was 11th place Jose Almaguer and 13th place Nicolas Frias. Jose had a 44 second improvement while Nico improved by 27 seconds. The boys finished 10 seconds apart with a 16:39 and 16:49 respectively. There was a 34 second spread 1st to 5th and a 45 second spread 1st to 7th both very commendable. In another rarity Fillmore put all 7 runners ahead of Oak Parks 5th scoring man but it was not quite enough to beat the newly crowned league champions who won by 4 points. The team did retain its number one ranking for division 4 in the State.

The femme fatales of the girls cross country charge was headed up by Kiana Hope who ran her fastest time on the course and finished 6th with a time of 19:18. This better this season time of 20:41 run at county and is her fastest time on the course. 21st overall and 2nd for the Flashes was Maria Villalobos. She completed the course in 20:52 which was a 38 second improvement. Alexis Tafoya hit 21:00 with a 50 second improvement to finish in 22nd overall. In 25th was Irma Torres who completed the 3 mile course in 21:14 which is a 1:39 second improvement. Laura Garnica continues to make huge gains as she finishes 27th in 21:28 a 2:13 second improvement this year. The break out sensation of the meet was freshman Briana Segoviano who in her first year made the varsity squad and finished 31st overall with a time of 21:45 a 1:15 second improvement over last week. To complete the varsity team was Jordyn Vassaur who finished in 22:40 at 38th place.
