On November 1, a number of Poly seniors run the last cross country race of their high school career. Many of these seniors are looking forward to Moore League finals and are hoping to achieve their personal goals of improving  with faster finishing times.

When asked how the cross country team prepares for the race, senior Brian Espinoza said, “We train really hard to get where we want to be and would like to achieve…being fully committed is a number one priority to achieving our goal.”

Senior Leslie Diaz said she likes to stay hydrated and keep a positive attitude before she races. Diaz also stated that one of her personal goals is to be patient during the race and try to enjoy the race as much as she can.

One of the highlights from this season, explained senior Lanae Caldwell, is having the opportunity to run in the Mount Sac race.

“Thinking of all the other amazing athletes that have ran this race before me, made me proud to have ran this race,” Caldwell said.

Senior Nate Cooper said his goal for the race is to achieve his best time for this season.

“I am excited to see all the hard work we’ve put in over the past few years,” Cooper said.

It is obvious that these student athletes put in a lot of work, time and dedication into their sport and academics. In the end, their hard work should pay off and hopefully they will feel content with their achievements.
