DiRAMOS, CRUZ TOP FINISHERS IN MONDAY’S TRI-MEET

Geckos looking strong on both boys and girls divisions

By Ben Leon Guerrero

The ISA Cross County meets continued Monday at the George Washington campus with the GW Geckos, Sanchez Sharks and the Southern Dolphins all taking part in the tri-meet.

Sanchez freshman Rynier DiRamos and GW Junior Robin Cruz took first overall in their respective
divisions.

DiRamos led the boys division from the start, increasing the gap as the meet progressed eventually taking first with a time of 17:46, a minute and nine seconds ahead of the next runner, putting all the attention on who would come in second.

“I see myself up there and I push myself hard to be the best. I set my expectations very high, and I expect myself to make that a reality.”

– Sanchez freshman ” Rynier DiRamos

The GW boys looked strong early on as a pack of Geckos held the two, three and four spots for the first half of the course but in the end, it would come down to a 50-meter sprint between GW’s Aiden Uncangco and Southern’s Gabriel Hollingsworth.

“I’m glad I got second, but all that was really driving me this meet was to beat DJ,” said Uncangco
referring to teammate and Gecko standout David Osbourn.

Uncangco and Hollingsworth both finished with a time of 18:55 with Uncangco crossing the finish line first to take second followed by Hollingsworth.

Results:
GW 24 – 32 Southern
GW 26 – 30 Sanchez
Southern 24 – 26 Sanchez

Girls Division
In the girls division it was GW who took two of the top three spots on their way to a sweep of the meet.

GW’s Cruz led the way with a time of 22:16 with teammate Rhylaieh Taitano in second with a time of 23:11. Sanchez’s Marin Fukui followed behind with a time of 26:32.

The Geckos remain unbeaten in the league and look to make a strong case for the title this year.
“We’re doing good as a team right now,” said Cruz. “I’m confident that we can make a legitimate shot at taking first this year.”

Results:
GW 15 – 50 Southern
GW 22 – 33 Sanchez
