Gregg captures 1st place; Cougar girls finish 2nd

SACRAMENTO — The team results were the same but the individual winner changed as Sean Gregg of El Dorado outlasted Vista del Lago’s Zach Jaeger at Tuesday’s second Sierra Valley Conference cross-country meet at Granite Regional Park.

As temperatures hovered near 100 degrees, the Cougar boys team added its own heat in hitting the mile mark with seven runner’s in the top 10

Although the pack fragmented over the next two miles, El Dorado still finished with seven harriers in the top 12 for a 31-55 victory over the Eagles.

As expected, the dual between Gregg and Jaeger materialized early but Gregg pulled away to a 15-second victory over the final half mile. Jonathan Revolinsky finished fifth overall, followed by Boone Bates in sixth. Ryan Gray and Ian Janoska rounded out the top 10. Union Mine’s Makana Kauhaahaa finished in eighth place and the D’backs as a team was fourth.

“Although Sean ran well, we absolutely must close the gap between our No. 1 and No. 5 runners to be in the chase for a State Meet trip,” Cougars coach Peanut Harms said. “One minute and 20 seconds is simply not going to get the job done. We have work to do.”

In the girls race, Vista showed why it’s ranked in the top three in in the state for Division III as the the Eagles easily handled the Cougar girls 21-42. Union Mine was sixth.

Sierra Jaeger of Vista was second followed by El Dorado’s Anne Donegan in third. El Dorado’s Kaitlynn Staggers (5th) and Chelsea Chestnut (9th) and D’back Michelle Gonzalez completed the top 10.

“We feel that racing against one of California’s best teams makes us a better team.” said Cougars co-head coach Tena Harms. “We feel we are a top 5 in the Section caliber team, possibly a top three (State Meet qualifying) team and with our young girls coming on we could be very tough at the end of the season.”

In the girls frosh/soph race, Cougar freshmen Brandee Harris (14:32) and Arianna Pizzuti (14:53) finished 1-2 but Vista eeked out a one point 39-40 victory. In the boys race, El Dorado placed first 33-37 with Charlie Plamondon, Jackson Harris and Ethan Reeder finishing 2-3-4 to lead the charge.

“The strength of our frosh/soph teams paint a very nice picture for the future of Cougar cross-country” Peanut said.
