On Saturday, September 2nd, the West Covina Harriers competed in their first race of the season – The Fastback Shootout. The 2-mile course was run under the shady trees at Arcadia County Park. To beat the ridiculous heat, the first race went off at 7:20am with races following every 20 minutes. The two standouts of the meet were freshman Claudia Vera and junior Derek Daproza. Each running the fastest West Covina times (female and male) of the day. Vera posted a time of 13:36 and Daproza finished at 11:07.
This Wednesday, September 13th, your Bulldogs will be heading into their first league meet. All levels of Boys (Freshmen, JV, and Varsity) will be looking to defend their undefeated seasons and League Championships. They should expect solid competition from Walnut and Los Altos. On the girl’s side… JV will be coming after Walnut, after finishing 2nd to them in league. Meanwhile, the Varsity Girls are looking to improve their standing in the Hacienda League after narrowly missing a trip to CIF last season.
Come out and show support for your Bulldogs this Wednesday at Bonelli Park in San Dimas, start time is tentative because of the heat – but races will not start earlier than 3:00pm!
