Finishing off the last meet of their season, the frosh/soph team came out victorious! The Brea frosh/soph team scored second overall which in comparison, completely showed the capabilities and the strengths of the Boy’s Frosh/Soph team. From the very beginning of their training, a majority of the frosh/soph members from our team focused towards achieving great success and put in all the effort towards training for cross country. The returning sophmores understood the amount of work that had to be put in to improve their previous times. Since the sophomores understood this, many sophomores this season stepped up their game for the greatness of the team. Overall the dedication that came out of these sophomores and the dedication that was shown by these sophomores during their final race proved to be outstanding. The newly introduced freshmen also proved to be a tight pack of talented runners. Our freshmen completely stuck close to each other during this race and because of this strategy, a majority of these freshmen learned how to become skilled and strong during tough races. Overall the amount of effort expressed from the frosh/soph athletes proved to be impactful towards their final race and these individuals will continue their impressive speed during track next season!
