Woodbridge Invitational
Silverlakes Sports Park (Norco), September 17

The Woodbridge Invitational is a top 5 meet nationally in terms of popularity, with over 13,000 athletes competing over two evenings in 52 races.  This year the meet was held at a new venue in Norco, the Silverlakes Sports Park (which is a huge soccer facility).  The course was flat on grass and dirt and designed for fast times.  Competing in the early races, the Titans faced temps in the low 90s and breezy conditions.    On the boys side, senior Eric Lew continued his strong start to the season in winning the Senior Boys race in 16:23.  In his first race of the season, Xavier Beck placed 16th (17:33), and senior Ethan Deshaies picked up his first career medal by placing 92nd (21:05).  The junior boys team placed 8th and were led by Tom Moffat (18:04, 33rd), followed by Alex Powers (18:21, 47th) and Tim Wong (18:22, 48th).  In the Sophomore boys race, Patricio Osegueda ran 18:27 (55th), followed closely by Sean Chen at 18:28 (57th) and Bill Li at 18:40 (68th).  The Freshman boys were paced by David Castellanos at 21:02, followed by Kai Barra in his first XC race with a time of 21:42.  With all the Rio Hondo teams competing at Woodbridge over the weekend, the meet was a preview of League competition.  In a theoretical meet based on Woodbridge times, the Titans placed 4th behind South Pas, La Canada and Temple City, and just ahead of Monrovia.  The Titan spread of about 2 minutes from 1st to 5th scoring runners will need to be reduced if they want to challenge.

On the girls side, sophomore Olivia Ruiz again had the fastest lady Titan time of the meet with an 19:32, good for 4th place in the Sophomore race.  In the same race Juliana Judge ran 21:04 for 23rd place.  Freshman Purvaja Balaji continues to impress, running 20:32 for 15th place in the Freshman race and again having the second fastest time Lady Titan time of the meet.  Freshman Katie Wong ran 22:01 (54th) and was the 4th fastest Titan.  Again, mashing the Woodbridge times together in a theoretical Rio Hondo competition, the girls would place 3rd just ahead of Temple City.  Their spread of 2:40 between the 1st and 5th runner will need to improve.  Small in number, each Lady Titan will be counted on to contribute.
