WALNUT - Over the years, the Mount San Antonio College Cross-Country Invitational has served as a midway point or litmus test for teams heading into league championships and eventually the CIF Southern Section postseason. While several local teams made strong appearances Friday afternoon, not one, figuratively or physically, could touch the Flintridge Prep boys' cross-country squad. The Rebels entered the 65th Mt. SAC edition ranked second in Division V and won their Division V sweepstakes with ease.

Crescenta Valley High School has something to cheer about with its multiple award-winning Cheer Squad. The almost 70 member CVHS squad has been busy traveling from competition to competition. They have met every challenge with energy, enthusiasm and teamwork bringing home first-place awards. The squad is divided into four categories - varsity, junior varsity, freshman cheer and song. The song category adds more dance than traditional cheer to its programs. At last weekend's Sharp International Cheer, a west coast regional competition, every division won first place with Song scoring highest out of all other teams.

Erik Boal Although the first-ever combination of the Division III, IV and V boys' and girls' sweepstakes races were the talk -- both for the good and the bad -- of Friday's rain-soaked 55th annual Mount San Antonio College Cross-Country Invitational, one local individual had no problem grabbing attention during pre-sweepstakes competition. Despite La Canada's seventh-place effort in the girls' sweepstakes race -- during which the Spartans got their first look at Division III power Rancho Santa Margarita and renewed their rivalry with North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake -- and despite the Flintridge Prep boys closing the gap between them and Division V rival Riverside Woodcrest Christian, it was St. Francis High senior Pat Donovan that upstaged them all on the 2.91-mile course in Walnut.

Erik Boal Most high school programs equate their respective league finals as the beginning of a season-ending, four-race journey that culminates at the CIF-State Cross-Country Championships at Fresno's Woodward Park. But in order for a team to truly determine whether it will be a contender or pretender at the CIF Southern Section preliminaries Nov. 15 or at the CIF finals Nov. 22, there is no better gage than competing at the Mount San Antonio College Invitational.

WALNUT - Winning a sweepstakes race at the Mount San Antonio College Cross-Country Invitational is a rare feat. So rare it seems, that Flintridge Prep boys' cross-country Coach Ingrid Herskind was at a loss when asked the last time her program boasted an individual champion. “Maybe Tom McLean did it, but honestly I don't know. I don't remember,” said Herskind, as her Rebels where one of a handful of locals consisting of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, La Cañada, Hoover and St. Francis.

Have you ever noticed that the more dire our country’s economic situation, the more crazies come out of the woodwork? As long as I have had e-mail, I’ve “won” everything from trips around the globe to the lottery in far away nations (though I’ve never entered any contests that would offer these awards). However, as our economy has become increasingly unstable and unemployment has been on the (rapid) rise, I’ve been “winning” more and more money.

On one of high school cross-country’s most prominent stages, Crescenta Valley High senior standout Zack Torres, already having run to a career full of highlights, let his baseball instincts take over and lead him to his most memorable finish. Despite stellar showings from a second-place Crescenta Valley girls’ squad and a third-place showing from Flintridge Prep’s boys’ team, Torres was likely the area’s biggest highlight during Saturday’s Clovis Invitational at Fresno’s Woodward Park, as he emerged from an ultra-competitive Boys’ Sweepstakes race with a second-place finish in 15 minutes 10 seconds on the strength of a head-first dive through the finish line.
