Beverly's Girl Varsity

The Girls Varsity Team for the first time this year had all of its runners in one race as they ran away with victory in their race at the MT SAC Invite. 

The girls scored an impressive low score of 60 points as the 2nd place team Shafter of Central California was in 2nd with 102 points and San Marcos of Santa Barbara was third. 

More impressive was the total team time of 1:39.21 almost 5 minutes ahead of the next team in the race. Beverly’s time in comparison to the other Division 3 races of the day put them ahead of Bolsa Grande (1:39.50) which is ranked #10 in the CIF SS Div. 3 and South Pasadena (1:39.40) which is ranked No. 11, and just behind West Torrance (1:39.07) which is ranked #5. 

From the beginning of the race the tandem of Sydney Segal and Brianna Simmons took the lead as they ran the entire race together and finished together at the finish line in the same time of 18:24. The victory nod went to Segal, as both girls set a new school record for the course. This is the first time Beverly runners have taken 1-2 in a prestigious race like MT SAC.
