Fresh off convincing victories in last Saturday's CIF Prelims, the JSerra Running Lions cross country teams now prepare for this tomorrows CIF Championships. The Boys team is led by sophomore phenom Anthony Grover and junior captain Peter Herold. Grover has had a breakout season, having already won top honors at the Orange County and Trinity League Championships this season, as well as capturing his heat at CIF Prelims with a convincing 14: 57 for three miles. Not to be outdone, Herold has earned All-Orange County and All-Trinity League honors this season. The two lead a youthful boys team that finished 2nd in CIF last year, and seeks to improve on that with a win in 2017.
The Girls team is led by junior Nadia Tabrizi. The three-time Trinity League Champion won her heat at Saturday's CIF Prelims and now leads a JSerra Girls squad intent on defending their 2016 CIF Championship. A victory would give the JSerra Girls their sixth CIF title since 2009.
CIF Championships will be held Saturday, November 18 at the Riverside Cross Country Course. Girls run at 9:45 a.m. and the Boys race at 10:45.
The action will swing north to Fresno the following Saturday for the running of the California State Championships.
Go Running Lions!
