Led by Klaus Quinonez and Kaleb Yemane, the Los Al Griffins Boys Cross Country team turned in a strong performance at the Division I race at the Dana Hills Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 22.
Quinonez finished the three-mile course in 15 minutes, 13.6 seconds, with Yemane right a tenth of a second behind. They were 27th and 28th overall in a field of 222 runners from throughout Southern California. Twenty four schools had enough runners to post team scores. The Griffins finished 9th in the team scoring.
In the girls Division 1 senior/invitational, junior Olivia Velasco’s time of 18:01.0 was good enough for 19th overall and helped the Griffins to 4th place in team scoring.
