The Oakland Cubs hosted its first cross country meet Sunday September 29, 2019 and it was a great success! The Cubs had a great showing with Ava and Chloe taking first place in the Girls 9-10 and 11-12 division, as well as Talia and Nicco L. clinching second place in the Girls 13-14 and Boys 9-10 division. We also had two third place finishers, Kelvin (Boys 8U) and Xiaowei (Boys 14-15). This was also the first race we have had teams of five or more; one in the girls 11-12 division and another in the boys 9-10 division. All of the runners ran a great race; this was a fantastic start to the early competitive season.
Thank you to all of the parents and volunteers who helped create a smooth meet.
Congratulations to Ava and Talia for qualifying for the 2019 USATF Junior Olympics to be held in Sacramento, CA. They placed in the top 5 in Regionals in Modesto, CA to qualify. Talia and Ava both took first place in their division for racewalk (3000m and 1500m) and Ava placed 2nd in turbo jav and 5th in the 1500 meter run.
Good luck and Go Cubs!
