PHS boys take second

Monache High School boys cross country claimed their ninth straight East Yosemite League title and maintained an EYL win streak of 96 straight victories with another win at the EYL championship meet Wednesday at the Delano Golf Course..

Individually, it was a two-man race between Jorge Sanchez of Porterville and Adrian Martinez of Monache. Sanchez took the early lead but Martinez closed in with the two running side-by-side for the entire race.

They averaged 5 minute, 5 second mile paces on the difficult grass course. Martinez pushed the pace and Sanchez responded.

They ran away from the field and Sanchez summoned a final kick to win the race by six seconds. Sanchez ran a blistering 15:09 with Martinez close behind with a 15:15. Sanchez’s 3-mile time is the 19th fastest in the Central Section while Martinez’s time is in the top 25.
