Oscar Medina (sr) of Lake View made a spectacular season debut by running a 15:38 at the 3 mile Horner Park course at the Gordon Tech Invite. His time of 15:38 not only won the race but was a full 16 seconds faster than he ran last year on the same course.
Also making news is a pair of CPS cross country newcomers from CICS-Ellison. Raymond Thomas ran a 16:26 and Deshawn Grey ran a 16:29. I don't know anything about those two except that CICS Ellison only had 3 runners run regionals last year and they did not include Thomas or Grey.
Something must be going on at Ellison because their #3 runner Kevin Robinson ran a 17:08 - which at Horner Park is a good time. By the way Robinson, a senior, was a 22 minute 3 miler last year.
If anyone knows anything about these Ellison runners, please comment.
