SLO High's Micayla Rennick finishes 29th at state cross country meet

San Luis Obispo High senior Micayla Rennick ran to a 29th-place finish in the Division 3 girls race at the CIF-State Cross Country Championships on Saturday at Woodward Park in Fresno.

Rennick finished the 5K course in 19 minutes, 1 second. She was the only girls runner from the county to qualify.

As a junior, Rennick finished in 22nd place last year at the state meet.

Sydney Segal of Beverly Hills won the race in 17:40.

Two county boys teams also competed Saturday.

Arroyo Grande’s Jonathan Corley and Jake Sarver each ran a personal best and finished one second apart in 52nd and 53rd place, helping the Eagles finish 12th as a team in the Division 2 boys race.

It was the school’s first appearance in the state meet since 1988, coach Sean Ricketts said.

Corley ran the course in 16:16, and Sarver in 16:17.

“This is a pretty special accomplishment for the boys team,” Ricketts said. “Our goal was to soak in that accomplishment and just being there running in that moment as they race.”

Ricketts said Arroyo Grande will enter its seniors in the Foot Locker West regional meet Dec. 1 at Mt. San Antonio College.

The Eagles had 328 points. Westlake won the title with 84 points.

Bryan Fernandez of Dos Pueblos won the individual title in 15:09.

In the Division 3 boys race, Aidan Farrell took 42nd place to lead Paso Robles to a 10th place finish as a team.

Farrell finished in 16:23, and sophomore Zachary Chamberlain took 63rd place in 16:36.

Aiden Goltra of Campolindo won the race in 15:18.

Paso Robles scored 253 points as a team. St. John Bosco won the Division 3 title with 70 points.

In the Division 4 boys race, Morro Bay sophomore Austin Lay posted a time of 16:54 and finished in 59th place.

La Salle’s Daniel De La Torre won the race in 15:30.
