Men’s cross country

The men’s team had five of the top 10 runners cross the finish line, and had a commanding first place win. Junior Connor Fisher finished second for the ‘Cats and third in the tournament.

Senior Aaron Mora was the last Wildcat to crack the top five with a fifth-place finish. Senior Kyle Medina and sophomore Arturo Arevalo finished within a minute of Mora and earned a sixth and seventh place.
