On Wednesday, Oct. 16, Rim of the World High School cross country went to their second league meet of the season at San Gorgonio High School. San Gorgonio, Eisenhower, Rialto, Jurupa Hills, Rim and Arroyo Valley were all there. These are the same six schools that were running at Rim’s home meet on Sept. 25.

Ricardo Vargas solidified his position as the top male runner in the league with another first place finish and a time of 16 minutes, 49 seconds. Second place came in 19 seconds behind him.

With the dedication and amount of work that he puts in every day, this margin is expected to grow over time. He shows up every day on a mission to move faster and farther. He’s a junior too, so the league will have to deal with him again next year.

Next up is the Mt. San Antonio College Invitational this Friday, Oct. 25, where the runners will face the most challenging course and conditions of the season. A significant portion of the course is uphill and the weather is expected to have high temperatures and winds with low humidity.

After that, the League Finals will be hosted by Rialto, where the six teams mentioned above will have their final faceoff of the season. Anyone who wants to qualify to go to CIF will have to place well at that meet.
