The Coast Union cross country team kicks off its fall season by competing in the Pinedorado Run on Sept. 2; the team participates in this event each year prior to the Pinedorado parade. The Pinedorado Run, in fact, begins at Coast Union and continues to the end of the parade route and back to the school.
Coach Ayen Johnson, who shares duties with Jim Hurley, has 11 runners this year, including senior Paul Butterfield, the reigning MVP over the past two years.

▪ Sept. 16 at the Morro Bay Invitational
