Running Lions Celebrate Third Straight CIF Victory

JSerra Running Lions competed in the CIF Championship Finals this past weekend, and with fierce competition from all over Southern California, the girls took first place.

The boys cross country team were not far behind taking eleventh place in all of Southern California.

“We’ve worked hard to build a championship tradition. It’s our goal to keep racing at this level for years to come. These young men and women are showing what happens when you combine hard work, teamwork and a daily desire to push personal limits,” said Coach Marty Dugard.

The girls have now qualified to move on to compete in the State Championships later this month. With their third consecutive win at both the Trinity League and CIF level the girls are considered top competition to win their third State Championship for the Lions.

“We graduate a couple of our top runners this year, and as dearly as I will miss them, the very real fact is that we need more runners to fill their spots next year. God has always provided for our program, and I can’t wait to see who He sends our way,” said Dugard.
