Sierra’s boys cross country team finished as the runner-up in the second Valley Oak League meet of the season Wednesday at Mistlin Sports Complex, while Manteca standout Sienna Jones took fourth individually in the girls race.
It was otherwise an Oakdale-dominated meet, as the Mustangs won both. It was familiar territory for Oakdale newcomer Omar Alsaidi, who transferred from Ripon. He finished the 5,000-meter race first in 18 minutes, 2.8 seconds, as the Mustangs claimed the first eight spots.
Tristan Crowe led Sierra with a 10th-place finish in 18:33.2. Ernesto Pacheco (12th, 18:47.7) and Brendan Alson (14th, 19:07.5) also sneaked into the top 15.
Sienna clocked a time of 22:14.3 in the girls competition. Oakdale’s Kassidy Fmura was the winner in 20:53.2.
Other local standouts were Sierra’s Kiana Kutch (eighth, 22:59.1), Manteca’s Jordyn Hegarty (ninth, 23:02), Sierra’s Mikayla Bueno (10th, 23:04.5), East Union’s April Duarte (11th, 23:05.6) and Sierra’s Marissa Gonzalez (14th, 23:48.9).
