The CCS cross country finals were held this weekend, and Harker was represented by the girls cross country team and Rigo Gonzales, grade 9. Gonzales finished 61 out of 119 Division 4 boys runners, and the girls team ended the season with a sixth place finish in D4. But the story of the day was Anna Weirich, grade 11, who took first place in the D4 girls race, bringing home the first girls CCS cross country title in school history. Weirich finished 47 seconds ahead of the second place runner and will travel to Fresno on Nov. 30 for the state championships.
Last week, the girls tennis team finished its season with an amazing CCS run. The Eagles defeated Salinas 6-1, No. 3 seed Cupertino 4-3 and No. 6 seed Menlo Atherton 4-3 to make it further in CCS than any other Harker tennis team (boys or girls) in school history. The girls eventually fell to St. Francis 2-5 in the semis, but had an amazing year finishing with a 15-3 record.
The historic girls volleyball season came to an end last week as the team was defeated in the first round of NorCals 0-3 by Central Catholic. Congrats on a great season Eagles!
Natalie Vo, grade 11, and Claire Chen, grade 9, will travel to Poppy Hills on Tuesday to compete at the state championships. Good luck ladies!
