Eastvale-For the first time in school history, the ERHS Boys Cross Country team qualified for the CIF State Championships! Fresh from Thanksgiving, the boys and their coaches and families headed up to Fresno to compete with the best in the state. While they may have missed out on the Black Friday specials, they soon realized that the best deal of the weekend was a 3rd place finish in the most competitive division in the state of California and Medals around their necks!

ERHS Boys Cross Country team is led by Head Coach Robles and Assistant Coach Cummings, the boys arrived at the course with dreams of standing on the podium and as a result of their hard work and dedication their dreams came true! The team worked together to secure a 3rd place finish led by Juniors Raymon Ornelas and Tyler Spencer who finished within 7 seconds of each other. Freshman Raul (Tony)Chavez, Junior Wayne Richards, who was sidelined earlier in the season with a fractured neck, came back strong, with seniors Isaiah Madrigal, Julian Robles and freshman Michael Sahagun helping to finish the race strong.

Once the race was over and the times finalized, the boys realized they had indeed clenched a spot in school history and most importantly atop the CIF podium. Stay tuned for next year, when 5 of the 7 boys return.
