Gregg, Pizzuti, Plamondon win titles

FOLSOM — The clouds cleared in time for an excellent day of cross country at Willow Hills, site of the Sierra Valley Conference League Cross Country Championships. With two teams ranked in the top 10 in the state (Division III), the races were fast and didn’t disappoint.

Prior to the varsity runs, Cougars Arianna Pizzuti and Charlie Plamondon captured individual titles in their respective races. The frosh/soph boys won the team title as well by crowding eight runners in the top 10 to score an extremely low 21 points for the victory.

“Our young programs are visions of the future for Cougar cross country … and the future looks very, very bright,” El Dorado coach Peanut Harms said.

The Vista varsity girls, ranked No. 2, showed “State Meet Form” in dominating the first three places and scoring a paltry 20 points to out-distance second place El Dorado (48) and Union Mine (100).

Earning All League honors for El Dorado’s was Anne Donegan (4th), Kaitlynn Staggers (6) and Chelsea Chestnut (8).

“Competing against the No. 2 team in the state has it’s advantages” Cougar coach Tena Harms said. “It makes us tougher and who knows, if we keep improving we may find ourselves in Fresno on Thanksgiving Weekend (State Meet) on the starting line with Vista”

For Union Mine, Allison Babbage (7th), Michelle Gonzalez (13) and Elise Piazza (20) all earned medals with Babbage getting All League.

“Our girls hope to continue their improvement since the resulkts jumped the girls from 14th to 12th place among 39 D-IV teams based on the best times posted this seasonn,” D’back coach Mark Indgjer said. “Ten boys recorded season and career PR’s today and six of our girls also recorded PR’s with five of those career PR’s.”

In the boys race it was “all business” for El Dorado’s Sean Gregg and he jumped out to a 20-yard lead in the early stages followed closely by four of his teammates.

“I think Sean wanted to show that his Bronco Invitational victory was no fluke” Peanut said. “We worked pretty hard this week and we are very happy with how the boys ran, especially Sean and sophomore Jay Revolinsky”

At the end of the day the Cougar boys, ranked 10th in California, had their third consecutive league banner after outscoring runner-up Vista del Lago by a healthy margin, 29-55. Union Mine, behind medal earners Makana Kauhaahaa (6th),Will Winter (11) and Troy Maxfield (14), placed fourth with 99 points.

Cougar Ryan Gray summed up the day and the season so far, “Being on a championship team is all I know, three years, three championships — it’s a great day to be a Cougar!”

The boys All League team featured El Dorado’s Gregg, Revolinsky, Boone Bates, Ian Janoska, Gray and Kauhaahaa.

The Union Mine and El Dorado Cross Country team’s next competition will be next weekend at the Sub Section Championships in Angels Camp.
