The boys cross country team has gotten off to a great start.

Varsity leaders Travis Trevizo, Daniel Curtin, and Kevin Faje have been steering the team in the right direction. Trevizo and Faje were able to break 17 minutes for three miles, while the rest of the varsity is just 10 seconds away from doing the same.

“The top seven are staying together more. We’re more of a pack now,” sophomore varsity member, Curtin said. “We’re working really hard. I also do extra stuff at home like core workouts, eating right and sleeping the right amount.”

Upperclassmen aren’t the only ones contributing to the team. 

“There are a lot of underclassmen that are stepping up,” senior varsity member, Trevizo said.

Freshman Matt Sagan likes being on the team. “I liked to run 5Ks in eighth grade. I thought I would join the team since running is a passion to me,” he said.

“It’s a lot of fun. You get to meet upperclassmen and make new friends,” Sagan said.

Coach Larry Forberg has been happy with how the season started. “The team is running strong and we’ve won a lot of the invites,” he said.

The rest of the season looks promising for the boys. “We’re always saying that sectionals are important, but it’s nice to have some wins along the way. If we stay injury free, and peak at the right time, we have a good chance of winning it,” Forberg said.
