NU Cross Country League Finals 2023


The Nevada Union Cross Country team raced their league finals on Thursday, October 26th at Railhead Park in Auburn. Their first League meet was on September 27th on the Nevada Union course. The Boys’ Varsity team was going for the win over Ponderosa, which was the biggest competition. They did not beat them, but they still got second place by only one point! The Girls’ Varsity team went out to try their best, having a successful day. The same can be said for the Boys’ and Girls’ Frosh/Soph teams. On Saturday, November 4th, the team had their crucial Sub-Sections race. The Boys’ Varsity made it to sections, which is set for this weekend. Their year-long goal is to make it to State as a team, which would be a huge accomplishment.

The top five runners of the Varstiy Boys’ team at the League Finals were Joshua Griffin (11), Rowan Henry (10), Koen Cayabyab (12), Charles La Jeunesse (10), and Ethan McCracken (11). Griffin ran the three-mile course in 16:08, awarding him third place in the race. Henry finished in eleventh place with a time of 16:58, and Cayabyab in seventeenth with a time of 17:38.
