Jacobs won the girls sweepstakes race with her time of 18 minutes, 6 seconds, and Voyles took the girls CIF-Southern Section Division II/III title. “I just try to keep up with the leaders, and whenever I feel like it, I just take off,” said Voyles, who won her race by 44 seconds. Upland’s Ryan Gamboa finished third in the boys sweepstakes race, but recorded the top overall time for the county at 14:58 while running in cool, overcast conditions. “I was afraid the sun was going to come out,” Gamboa said. The sun eventually showed up as the morning progressed, heating the course for the roughly 1,900 participants, an event record. Riverside County’s Murrieta Valley High School swept both the boys and girls sweepstakes races Saturday morning in the 60-team meet at Cucamonga Guasti Regional Park. The Upland boys and Redlands girls carried the banner for San Bernardino County, finishing second in their respective races. Aside from the county matchup, there were other chances for area athletes to shine. Pleasant weather might have been the only saving grace for some traditional powerhouse teams that found themselves struggling. “We were terrible,” Don Lugo coach Don Salyers said of his boys, who finished seventh out of eight sweepstakes teams. “We probably should have just stayed home – we would have had a better day.” Salyers said Don Lugo was missing its top runner and leader, Alfred Gonzalez, who was scheduled to take the SAT. Meanwhile, occasional rival Upland was busy celebrating its county title. “I like how we competed,” Upland coach Michael Wilson said. “Ryan was up there running with the best runners in the state and trying to adjust to them.” Wilson also praised Albert Davilla, who finished third in the county standings, 5 seconds behind Etiwanda’s Caleb Mesa. “He’s a dynamite guy, and he works his butt off,” Wilson said. Davilla was pleased with his team’s performance, but said the county vs. county rivalry didn’t do much for him. “You don’t really think about it,” he said. “Sometimes, I just like to go out there and run.” Following the meet, officials compiled the top seven times from all the various races and named an all-county team. Samantha Borman (Redlands); Brianna Bentley (Los Osos); Anya Watford (Los Osos); Logan Benge (Redlands) and Meredith Robie (Redlands) joined Voyles and Jacobs on the San Bernardino all-county girls team. Aside from Davilla, Mesa and Gamboa, Alex Mercado (Don Lugo), Daniel Garza (Don Lugo), Carlos Sanchez (Etiwanda) and Manuel Bueno (Rancho Cucamonga) qualified for the boys all-county team. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
