There's a problem with the results. Race #2 (d4 Girls) is overlaying race #1 and race#3 results.

Congratulations to Cooper Teare of SJND for a sub 15 performance winning the D5 boys race and second overall behind Philip Rocha of Arcata (the only 2 sub 15 runners in the Stanford Invitational).

Very impressed by Jesuit and their tight 1-5 spread, which is exactly what you need for post season success. Once Kurdy gets back to being himself, their 1-2 (with an emerging Holland) could have podium potential at state. Also pleasantly surprised to see a sophomore as the number one man of powerful Bellarmine, already looking like a good bet for a top team spot at state next year. Rocha, as the returning state champion was a joy to watch in a rare NorCal appearance. I've also seen Armijo's Grijalva go through some growing pains and is now emerging as a talent who could do some damage at State. Obviously there is still a ton of talent in SoCal, but it seems like Northern California teams and individuals are primed to do better come state than any time in recent memory.

No more excuses for Kurdy he raced stupid yesterday. Your not nursing an injury when you go out with leaders for first 1.5 of race after running 3 races prior. He's talented athlete that appears to be back just needs to race a bit smarter. But yes Jesiit is a machine right now

First of all, it's You are and not your as in You are not nursing an injury. It's tough to get past someone's argument when you can't use proper grammar and post anonymously.

Also, there is no reason for calling a high schooler's race strategy stupid. That was the Stanford Invitational which took place at the not quite halfway point in the season. It's another step toward great running in November. I would rather have runners make mistakes now and learn from them. As a coach, I would also rather have an athlete who takes risks than one who runs safely in every race.

Jesuit now has two really strong runners up front. What other team has a 9:09.91 3200 meter runner as their #2 man? There are not many and if Jesuit is truly going to compete in Division I and give themselves a shot to make NXN, Sean Kurdy is going to play a big part in those accomplishments.
