The JSerra girls cross country team has done what no school in Orange County, in any sport, has every accomplished; Three-peat. They won their third straight State Championship Saturday, with the added highlight of sophomore Brooke Kunzelman being named to the All-State team. In addition, the Running Lions won their third straight CIF Championship one week earlier, to go along with their third consecutive Trinity League Championship. Congratulations to all of the Running Lions, on both the boys and girls teams, for an incredible season and a continuing commitment to excellence.

The season-long journey of JSerra wasn’t always perfect or without challenges. But once again, that journey came to an end with the Lions celebrating another CIF state title.

JSerra placed five scoring runners in the top 30 to win its third consecutive Division 4 state title at the CIF State Cross Country Championships on Saturday at Woodward Park.

The Lions are the first county program in the 26-year history of the state championships to win three consecutive state titles.

“The girls came together, worked as a unit, and played their roles,” Lions coach Marty Dugard said. “It’s humbling because of the sacrifice that the girls go through. These girls have bought into this tradition of excellence that we have tried to build.”
