Race #1 February 25, 2017 Fort Ord
ECHS earned a third place podium spot as a team! With 14 racers, ECHS was the smallest Division 1 team (the minimum is 12 racers) – other teams ranged from 17 to 38 racers. Truly an outstanding effort by ALL members of the team!
The course had a rolling on-road start before quickly
entering the trails and was about 6 miles long. The trails were fast and had lots of fun, twisty single-track through the trees. Freshman raced for 2 laps and Sophomore and JV riders did 3.
Impressively, out of the 14 racers, 5 were on the podium and 8 were in the top 10 in their category.
JV Girls: Helen Gilbert-Snyder, 1st (Podium, Category Leader); Joan Nanono, 12th
JV Boys: Matt Garrison, 1st (Podium, Category Leader); Evan Garrison, 3rd (Podium)
Sophomore Boys: Josh Harnden, 3rd (Podium); Max Lambert, 8th; Tal Zvik, 9th; Pedro Perez, 15th; Daniel Huebner,
20th; Sebastian Alvarez, 21st; Charlie Borreani, 28th.
Freshman Girls: Madeline Hill, 3rd (Podium)
Freshman Boys: Keith Emery, 8th; Nitzan Gladstone, 12th
