Girls Team: Arcadia Junior Holly Lung had a huge win! Her 17:17 finish is second best All-Time SGV. Her teammate Jasmine He made an even bigger breakthrough with a 17:41 for 4th, and she now ranks =11th A-T SGV.  Soph Eryca Yamane also jumped into the All-Time list, her 18:15 ranks her =#32. The Apaches were 3rd at 91:16 in Div.

II, and were led by an outstanding 18:13/11th performance from Kiana Cavanaugh, who now ranks 30th A-T SGV.

Girls Individual: Walnut frosh Chloe & Emma Arriaga made a great debut at the Mt.SAC Invite. Chloe was 4th in 17:28 and Emma, with a huge step up, was 5th in 17:37, and they now rank, respectively, 7th and 10th All-Time SGV.

After the jump is the SGV Top Ten performers for Saturday.  Div. II is still to come but the heat will probably prevent anyone from running their way onto the list.  We’ll update if they do.
