Laguna Beach Cross Country kicks off season at Great Cow Race

The Laguna Beach Boys and Girls Cross Country teams kicked off their seasons on Saturday, Sept 1 at the 12th Annual Great Cow Race at Cerritos Regional Park. 

LB Girls finished 14th overall out of 33 teams, ahead of schools two, three and even four times our size, like Huntington Beach, Torrance, and Poly (Long Beach). In fact, the only Southern Section Division 4 team that placed above Laguna was Bishop Amat.

Senior Emily Engel led the way, finishing 56th (out of 838 total runners) with a 3-mile time of 19:33.0. Junior Kaitlin Ryan finished just a few strides behind in 74th place with a time of 19:48.8, while Freshman Coco Reed also finished strong in 122nd place with a time of 20:21.4.

LB Boys finished 26th overall out of 34 teams. Top finishers individually included Sophomore Will Compton in 127th place (out of 1,075 total runners) with a time of 16:47.4, Timmy Crawford in 215th place with a time of 17:14.2, and Junior Tanner Burton in 271st place with a time of 17:33.6.

Congrats on a nice start to the season for both teams!
