Cross country reflects on successful season

December 6, 2017 — by Neil Rao

The cross country team closed out a successful season with several Falcons placing at both CCS and the State meet.

Senior captain Amit Nag was the only to place at the state meet on Nov. 18 at Woodward Park in Fresno, ranking 21st in the  Division III race.

Along with Nag, seniors Anirudh Rao and Charles Qi as well as junior David Berkowitz, sophomore Kole Tippetts and sophomore Shivam Verma attended CCS.

At CCS, the Falcon’s finished sixth in the CCS Division III race on Nov. 11 in Salinas. Nag led the pack, placing fourth out of all runners.

Qi attributed the success this year to changes in training regiment throughout the season.

“We trained much harder this season, incorporating morning practices and weekend runs,” Qi said. “The increased distance and practice time pushed us to adapt and when meets came we always performed better.”

The boys’ team also credits the addition of coach Ian Tippetts with improving team unity as well as individual performance.

“Despite any mistakes we’ve made, I believe we performed very well this season and although I am graduating, I believe our team is well prepared for future years,” Rao said.
