Top Notch

HHS cross country runner Stephanie Hensley were the top finishers for the Greyhounds in their respective varsity races at the NBL Cross Country Championships on Nov. 8.

The Greyhounds wrapped up an abbreviated league cross country campaign at the North Bay Oak Division Championships on Nov. 8, a meet marked by ideal weather and record shattering performances.

Maria Carrillo turned the event into a personal highlight reel, sweeping both the varsity boys and girls races to secure the league title. In fact, the Pumas landed five runners in the top six for the boys, setting a meet record for the best collective team performance.  

Held on the classic, 3.05-mile Spring Lake course in Santa Rosa, the HHS varsity boys were led by junior standout Jack Vanden Heuvel, crossing the finish line in seventh place overall with a blistering time of 15:41.

The varsity girls sent two runners to the starting line for Healdsburg, led by Stephanie Hensley’s 29th place finish.

Next up for the Running Dogs is the North Coast Section Championships at Hayward High School on Nov. 23.
