Once again, Tim O’Rourke and the folks that run the Mt. Sac Invite will be presenting the San Gabriel Valley Cross Country Awards. Here are the details, straight from Tim:
Once again this year we would like to honor the top five senior, and junior, sophomore and freshman boys and girls; the top team; and the top coach in the San Gabriel Valley at a special awards ceremony to be held at the end on the season on Thursday evening, December 3rd on the campus of Mt. Sac in the beautiful Founder’s Hall beginning at 7:00 PM. Please reserve that date, so that your top runners, coaches and parents can attend this celebration honoring the best runners in the San Gabriel Valley.
We had a nice crowd attend last year, and we are hoping this year to get all of the top runners and coaches from the local area to attend.
In order to make these All-San Gabriel Valley awards as fair and as objective as possible, these rankings are based solely on times achieved on the Mt. SAC cross country course during the 2009 cross country season. This should be fair since every school in the valley has the opportunity to run on the Mt. SAC course several times during the season—there is the San Gabriel Valley and Mt. SAC Invitationals and the CIF-SS prelims and finals are also held on the Mt. SAC course. Additionally, several teams use the Mt. SAC course for their home meets as well as league finals.
You can view top ten lists overall, plus top 5 for sophs and frosh and the top teams through last week’s finals meets after the jump.
