As one of the most popular sports at Burlingame High School, cross country remains welcoming while also offering an intensely competitive environment. Only being a few weeks into the season, the team has already prepared both physically and mentally for the meets.
“For the beginning of the season, the team has been performing really well.” Junior Paolo Puzon said. “We had some summer practices which helped improve our level of fitness and mindset going into the season.”
The cross country coach, Obbie, is largely responsible for fostering the fun yet challenging atmosphere that embodies the practices and meets. The team remains upbeat about their chances, despite losing a lot of talent.
“Although we lost a lot of our senior runners that were on varsity, the team seems even stronger now due to all the people who have intentions of racing and simply just supporting one another.” Puzon said.
