JV had the top five places, which is a perfect score. In cross country, having a perfect score is rare and is an incredible achievement. Jana Hermoso, a senior, came in first with the time of 14:16. Senior Chloe Campo came in one second later, receiving second place. Coming in third, fourth and fifth were Maureen Foto, a freshman, Grace Wolfe, a freshman and Celeste Hatfield, a sophomore.
