"2020" XC Season Recap
The “2020” Cross Country Season was like no other! It started in January of 2021 with daily temperature checks, masks, social distancing and no actual competitions against other schools allowed. Our first actual meet against another school was March 5 vs Monterey Trail. The course was three loops around Cal and McClatchy and then finishing on the track. It was a flat, but slow course with lots of tight turns. We ran a second race on the same course against Laguna Creek. The boys race was a close one with us winning by one point! We changed it up with a 5K/3200m on the track for a meet vs Kennedy. Our last Metro Meet was March 24th at River City. It was nice to run somewhere new and River City was a great host! For our final meet of the season, we got to race against Rio Americano. It was a great way to end the season with everyone running well and lots of PRs! The girls managed to upset Rio, 24-31. Anna McNatt led the girls with a McClatchy record and the 2nd fastest time in the Section of 17:40. The boys also made a strong showing, led by Kai Sorensen, with a PR of 17:21. Although it was short and lacked the usual big meets, we were thankful to be healthy and able to have a season. A short week break and then on to track season! Go Lions!
