Arroyo Grande High freshman runner Ricketts is honored

Arroyo Grande High freshman Christian Ricketts was named to the 2013 Cross Country Freshmen All-State “Dream Team” compiled by PrepCalTrack.com on Sunday.

Ricketts was one of seven ninth-graders listed to the “Dream Team” by the California high school running website, which also chose Ricketts as the CIF-Southern Section Freshman of the Year.

Ricketts was the top freshman finisher at the Dec. 7 West Regional of the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships at Mt. San Antonio College, finishing 26th out of 176 runners in 16 minutes, 30 seconds. He also was the fastest freshman at the CIF-Southern Section championships in November, but did not qualify for the state meet.

San Luis Obispo’s Callum Bolger was named to the Second Team “Dream Team.”
