Katherine Scoville dropped 45 seconds off her course time from the mid-season Mt. SAC Invitational and won CIF-Southern Section D4 in 17:53 (an impressive 21 seconds over the second place runner and even more remarkable since it was faster than her time at Riverside in CIF Prelims and many runners were 20 or so seconds slower at SAC.) She qualified for the CIF State meet as an individual. Though each of the Spartans’ scorers improved significantly off their Invite times, it was not enough to allow the La Canada team to qualify as they placed 9th overall with 254 points and a team time of 1:40:00. The entire Varsity squad is returning in 2016 and will have another shot at State.
South Pasadena’s girls team competed in D3. Emily Ye led the Tigers with a 19:49 finish in 48th place, followed closely by Elizabeth Bock at 19:55 in 55th. The team came in 13th in a tough division with a score of 342 points and a team time of 1:42:15.
Xavier Beck of San Marino ran as an individual in D4 Boys and came in 41st with a time of 16:47.
