Camino Del Rey #1: Bosco Tech Returns, Amat Holds Steady

The Camino Del Rey Athletic Association is a “super league” of 14 girls teams and 15 boys (including 7 from the SGV), divided into three leagues, with something like a “promotion/relagation” system that groups the schools by recent results. All three leagues in the association hold their meets together, and the first of 2018 was Wednesday at Hollydale Park in South Gate.

The Bishop Amat girls last Saturday at Woodbridge

 In the top Del Rey League, SGV #4 Bishop Amat girls were easy winners, running together off the front and just missing a perfect 15, finishing with a 16-54 to second place St. Joseph. Newly promoted Pomona Catholic was 4th and St. Paul fifth. Pomona Catholic is not out of reach of 3rd, the final CIF qualifying spot, but it looks like they’ll need to rely on on an at-large spot to advance to CIF

Amat’s Olivia Paez was the winner in 18:47 and the next five Lancers were within a minute. Brooke Burciaga (11th/19:59) was tops for PC and Raegan Lucero (13th/20:33) was best for St. Paul

La Salle – happy after their first league win!

This is the La Salle girls’ first year in the middle, Camino Real League, and they made the most of it, scoring a 34-35 win over St. Pius X/St. Mattias. Margaret O’Hagan (4th/23:57) was best for LS, but their win sealed by a 6-9 finish from the other four scorers. Cantwell-Sacred Heart was third in this four team league, led by Kylee Daley (14th/26:21)

On the boys side Amat and Bosco Tech made strong efforts but couldn’t quite reach CIF Div. 3 – #3 Cathedral.  Cathedral took command from the gun, their top 5 was in the top 10 all race long. Bosco moved up in mile two to challenge Amat for 2nd but Amat’s frontrunners closing well to secure 2nd place. This was a tightly grouped race, with 2-8 within 20 seconds, so things could change around quite a bit in the coming weeks.

This was Amat’s best race of the year, and the 3rd place puts Bosco in the hunt to advance to CIF for the first time since 2014. The SGV’s St. Paul and La Salle were 4th and 5th in this five-team grouping.

Isaiah Hernandez (2nd/15:46) was best for Amat, and he as joined in the first seven by teammate James Leon (3rd/15:51), Owen Lozano/St. Paul(6th/15:58) and Aaron Dominguez/Bosco Tech (7th/15:58). Daniel Piesik (14th/16:37) was tops for La Salle.

Cantwell-Sacred Heart boys are in the third divison Santa Fe League, and they were second to St. Anthony in the five-team league in which three scored. Josue Banuelos (9th/21:17) was best for the Cardinals.
