High temps at Mt. SAC didn’t prevent our Mustangs from posting excellent times at the 75th Annual Mt. SAC Cross Country Invitational on Friday, October 20, 2023.

Temperatures were in the low 90s at mid-day, and race officials decided to shorten a few of the earlier races by moving them to the two-mile course. This was to help avoid heat-related distress among the hundreds of runners attending the meet. Along with the heat, Mt. SAC’s notoriously challenging course, which includes a dirt running path and several steep hills, made the event even more memorable. Sophomore Alison Su took 4th place overall in the D3,4&5 Girls Soph division, and junior Dante Maldonado placed 9th in the D3,4&5 Boys Team Sweepstakes division.
