On Sept. 29, 2012, the Carlmont frosh-soph girls were successful at the Westmoor Ram Invitational at Westmoor High School in Daily City while the varsity boys also did well at the Stanford Invitational.

At the Ram Invitational, the frosh-soph girls placed second overall. Senior Corin Soelberg finished in 24th for JV Girls. Juniors Franklin Rice and Brandon Whiteley also did well, placing sixth and eighth, respectively, for JV Boys.

When asked about her opinion on the team’s performance at the meet, Junior Grace Gowen said that “as a whole, [we] did fairly well.”

While the Ram Invitational was underway, a few Scots were also competing at the 39th Annual Stanford Invitational. Carlmont sent its top seven varsity boys runners, Daniel Bereket, Ryan Dimick, Tim Layton, Reese Dickson, James Schulte, Lucas Matison, and Matt Rouse, to compete. Bereket placed 17th on the 5,000 meter course with a time of 15:53. Dimick placed 53rd with a time of 16:25.

After the meets at Stanford and Westmoor, the NorCal High School cross country standings say that Carlmont is in fourth place overall, according to Cross Country Express. A few days prior to the meets Saturday, Carlmont was in fifth place in the standings.

Carlmont has done well so far this season, hopefully they will continue to do so. The Scots are supposed compete in the upcoming PAL meet at Westmoor on Oct. 9.
