September 16, 2017 - Farmer Invitational - Hayward High School, Hayward - 10:00 AM - The Farmer Invite was full of big improvements across the board.  There were multiple runners that improved drastically over the scrimmage time on the same course.  Amelie Chabot (15:48), running in her first cross country race ever, finished 8th in her heat. Sara Morrison (18:03) improved her time on the Hayward course by almost a minute.  Grayson Young (12:58) was also able to improve greatly over his time of 15:18 at the scrimmage. And freshman Ryan Seidler (14:52) was in the running for the biggest improvement of the day, running 4 MINUTES faster than his scrimmage time (19:01). The Freshman Boys team was able to walk away with second place in their race.  In the Open race, Nicole Chen (15:51) was finally able to race and finished 5th in her race.  Also in the Open Race, Stella Rocchi (16:51) made HUGE improvements over her scrimmage time of 20:37.  In the JV Girls 3 mile race, both Evelyn Morehead (4th: 20:53) and Sidney Tran (5th: 20:59) were able to break 21 minutes, helping lead their team to a win in the race.  In the Sophomore boys race, Kyle Elias (12:15) made a triumphant comeback with a win, and Vince Tan (12:44) came in third to help the boys team get second in their heat.  In the Open boys race, both Oswald Dai (13:57.17) and Jackson Berg (13:57.22) had a heated race, with Oswald winning by only  .05 seconds.  The JV boys team dominated their heat and put their top 7 in the top 10 of the race.  In fact, all 10 boys were in top 25, meaning every boy for DHS got a medal for the second year in a row.  In the Varsity races, both the boys and girls got second, with the boys team missing out on first place by one point.  For the boys, Noah Goldfarb (16:04) and Surya Marimuthu (16:05) ran amazing times.  For the girls, Shelby Piegaro ran a fantastic 19:56, breaking 20 for the first time.

Dublin Makes Statement at 1st Meet of the Year

September 9, 2017 - Ed Sias Invitational - Hidden Valley Park, Martinez - 8:30 AM -

The year started off strong for Dublin as they headed to the Ed Sias Invitational, a trip the Gaels have been making for almost a decade now.  The day started off with a strong showing from the Frosh Boys Unlimited race, where freshmen Grayson Young and Gage Vikers (both at 12:41) helped lead their team to a fourth-place finish.  The boys JV continued the trend with a dominating performance, scoring just 24 points and having their top 5 runners in the top 10 of the race and all 7 runners finished in the top 17 of the race.  Keep in mind, there were over 150 runners in this race alone, so an amazing team achievement.  This was led by senior Trevor Chapman (10:54) who is now a two-time winner on the course. The boys Frosh/Soph Limited race was not able to continue the team medal streak, but Freshman Surya Marimuthu was able to finish in an outstanding 11:02 to set up his spot as a top 10 runner on the loaded Dublin High School boy's squad  This race was followed up by the JV Unlimited race, where Brandon Lai (11:56) helped lead 12 Dublin runners into the top 17 of the race.  It was then time for the Varsity Boys race, and the team came in with high expectations.  The boys ended up winning in an unofficial meet record of 51:53, with an excellent team score of just 23.  The top three are going to get talked about a lot this year, but we must highlight the number 5 runner, Kyle Morrison (10:54),  who really stepped up for his team. It was then the girls' turn. The varsity girls were first, and they proved that they have some great potential this year with a team spread of only 47 seconds.  Led by junior Danielle Han (13:12) in her first ever cross country race, the Lady Gaels brought new talent and seasoned veterans together.  In an emotional return to the race, Evelyn Morehead (14:54) helped lead the JV Girls limited to an impressive 3rd place as a team.  In the Frosh/Soph Limited, newcomers Haley Tjon and Sidney Tran (14:34; 14:50) ran impressive first races.  And in the last race of the day, Stella Rocchi (17:08) took 9th and received another piece of hardware for the Dublin Gaels.  Overall, Dublin took home plaques, medals, and the knowledge that this was going to be a very good year to be a Gael.  Ed Sias Evaluation Form  Ed Sias Results    Anant Jain Ed Sias Photos    James Morehead Ed Sias Photos    Ed Sias All Time List (updated)
