Warriors test speed of Warpath

Staff report
Aisha Ceron splashes her way through the Warrior Warpath on Friday at Whittell High School.

Splashing and squealing through thigh-high muddy waters, cross-country runners charged along the Warrior Warpath to kick off the cross-country season on Friday.

The Whittell cross-country team has eight runners this year. With only three returners and no seniors, the Warriors are a relatively new and young team. Juniors Aisha Ceron and Rudy Mata, along with sophomore Gabe Rusk, make up the veteran contingency.

Ceron was the only runner who charged through the varsity course on Friday.

“I’m very pleased with how hard she’s working,” head coach Lindsay Wines said.

Freshmen Scott Harrison and Cole Snyder may be rookies, but they showed off some speed on the JV course Friday. Wines said she expects to see big things from the two down the road.

Junior transfer students Keatzia Aldana and Gisele Aldana were also out tearing up the cross-country trail with the Warriors.

Junior Kate Plaszowiecka rounds out the cross-country team, but was sideline with an injury at Friday’s meet.

UP NEXT: The Warriors will travel to North Tahoe High School for the next meet on Friday.
