BVH cross country blasts through first meet

On Friday, March 5 at 3:00 p.m. Bonita Vista High (BVH) varsity boys’ cross country began the first meet of 2021 against Otay Ranch High (ORH). Juniors Pierce Manson and Enrique Aranda, senior Jonathan Siegel and junior Max Anderson were the top runners of the boys’ race, according to BVH varsity girls’ runner and junior Lauren Salt.

Following the varsity boys’ race was the varsity girls’ at 3:30 p.m. with the BVH lady barons beating ORH. The top runners of this race were senior Sequoia Kriss, Salt, junior Diandra Jara and junior Savanna Sierra.

It felt great to finish the race. It’s been so long since my last cross country season and therefore I forgot the anxious yet excited feeling I have during and before a race. I was so proud of my team and how much we’ve all improved!!” Salt said.

The lady barons took the win against Otay [Ranch High] today which was a great moment for us. Every runner did great today and everyone was so supportive!”
