Congratulations to the Cross Country Teams! 

This past weekend, the Reservoir Cross Country Team took 52 athletes to Cary, North Carolina. Competing against stiff competition, 18 RHS runners ran personal best times!

Ryleigh Griffin, Carrie Lubis, Carla Wilson, Chris Reckner, Yash Patel, Elliott Pochettino and Nimay Vyas are all first time Cross Country runners and all had amazing races! Quintin Butler, Nitan Singh, Travis Ponton, Noah Kim, Breann Smith, and Annabel Cortez improved their 5k times by more than a minute!

The Boys Team finished 3rd out of 35 teams. Leading the way was William Christian in 8th place. Will ran 16 minutes 29 seconds and now has the third fastest time in Reservoir school history.  Kai Muniz was 16th overall in a time of 16:51 and is now fifth all time at RHS!

The Girls Team finished 11th out of 33 teams.  Annabel Cortez was our top runner in 9th place in a time of 20 minutes and 34 seconds.  Close behind was Heather Ailinger who finished in 19th place overall with a time of 20:54.

The Gators are back in action this Saturday at Stevenson University! Congrats again to all of our runners and our coaches, Mr. Phil Rogers and Dr. Bobby Gessler!
