The J.P. Taravella boys cross country team had seven players run in the 4oth annual Spanish River Invitational and all seven set personal records. 

With over 225 runners competing across 27 schools, Marcos Noriega had the top time for the Trojans. He finished in 80th place with a time of 18:44.61, just ahead of teammate Christopher Reid Jr at 18.52.05. 

Carson Dunham and Jaylen Amoa both finished within one second of each other. Jace Johnson and Giovanni Sincore set personal records, while Donald Lew not only had the best race of his life, he set a personal record by over four minutes. 

“It was a great race for us as it was an eye opener because they finally ran to their full potential,” said Head Coach Arnold Hopkins. “They now know what it will takes to run even faster going into our championship part of the season. The main goal is to go to states as a team in which we made a huge step toward that after that race.”
