Okano’s run ends at state

Chronicle Staff

Chris Okano ‘08 competed in the cross country individual state finals in Fresno on Nov. 14 after the boys’ team fell short of their state title dreams at CIF finals a week before.

Despite Okano’s successes in the regular season, he only took 105th place in the individual competition.

Both the boys’ and girls’ teams had winning regular seasons and both made it to the CIF preliminaries. The boys team finished with a 4-0 record and the girls ended the season with a 5-1 record.

The boys’ team actually beat eventual Division IV state champions, Big Bear, at the CIF preliminaries according to Michael Richardson ’08. 

The boys’ team finished eighth at CIF finals, barely missing the seven-team cutoff.
