FRESNO — The best of the best ran at last weekend’s CIF State cross Country Championships at Woodward Park.

El Dorado County was represented by the Golden Sierra boys and El Dorado girls teams and individual qualifiers from Union Mine, El Dorado and Oak Ridge.

Despite some sparkling performances, area runners were shut out of the medal ceremony. With 190 plus runners per division, competition on the grass-asphalt-dirt 5,000 meter course was tough.

Union Mine senior Makana Kauhaahaa ended his prep career with a personal best 16.22 for 19th place in the Division IV race. Kauhaahaa’s time was fastest for area boys and an improvement of 31 seconds and 38 places over his 2012 state appearance.

El Dorado senior Boone Bates continued his strong postseason with a season-best 16.33 for 62nd place in the D-III race.

The Grizzly boys team took 19th. Golden Sierra was led by Ryan Sewell’s career best 17.17, an improvement of 16 seconds. Sewell was 54th in the D-V race.

Oak Ridge senior Rachel Peterson posted the girls fastest time of 18.56, a personal best by three seconds. While Peterson ran the D-I race, Union Mine sophomore Allison Babbage trimmed 12 seconds off her 2012 time to clock in at 20.12 for 65th in the D-IV girls race.

El Dorado’s girls team finished 21st for D-III.Celina Vincenzio, Qing Swain, Dani DeStefano, Arianna Pizzuti and Mariah Thompson all had personal bests while Kaitlynn Staggers and Katherine Buethe had second-best career times.
