Crystal Springs Invitational today

2012 Crystal Springs Invitational Results (NOW POSTED)

I will post what I can from the meet.  Should be a great day of competition.  The course is in great condition and the weather should cooperate so expect some fast times.

Early report from the Invite.
Yohaness Estifanos of Milpitas blasts 14:39 followed by Richard Ho of Leland at 14:45.  The 14:39 for Estifanos ties him with Eric Mastalir of Jesuit HS for the 5th fastest individual on the course.  Ho's 14:45 places him as the 14th fastest individual on the course.  The Bellarmine boys won the team competition placing 5 guys under 16 minutes.  They outdistanced their CCS Division I rival Carlmont HS who were followed by Central Catholic School from Oregon.

In the girls race, Madeleine Ankhelyi led the way through the first mile followed by Vanessa Fraser and Vanessa Estrada.  Fraser ended up the winner (sorry don't have the time but it was around 17:10) followed by Ankhelyi at 17:19 and then Estrada.  The team champions were Clovis West followed by Vista del Lago.

I will post the results once I get them.  Feel free to chime in on the races and performances today.

Wow! Bellarmine running the 20th fastest team time on the course and Carlmont running only nine seconds slower than they did at last years CCS finals! CCS should be an absolutely amazing race between these two teams.

Would anyone happen to know Ho's/Estifanos' splits at the 1 mile/2 mile? Thanks

I don't know what the first mile was but that should be easy to get from somebody. The 2nd mile I heard they went through 9:41.

I had the mile at 4:42 (eyeballing it from the top of the hill by the start) and the 2-mile at 9:46, again eyeballing it from the top of heart break hill...not too shabby!!!

The groomed course is making a big difference.

Good weather too.

The groomed course? Is it better than last year? Will it be groomed the rest of the season?

The course was closed for at least 2 weeks this summer. The work that was done has definitely made the course faster. All it needs now is a little rain to pack the dirt a bit.
