The Bike Dawgs traveled to Boggs Mountain last weekend to compete against over 50 teams from all over Northern California in the NorCal mountain bike championship race.
Senior Annie Brow had the race of her career, storming through the rolling singletrack and grueling fire road climbs to take 3rd place in the Varsity Girls race, and securing a 3rd place overall finish for all of Northern California – the highest Varsity Girls’ placement yet in the seven-year history of mountain biking at SRHS. Sophomore Sam Weinstein also ended the day on the podium for the fifth time this season, coming in 4th in the race and securing 3rd place overall in the JV Boys category. Those results – plus strong finishes by Isabella Breen, Emily Laskin, Seth Francis, Walker Busby, Evan Prahm and Jake Becker – gave the Dawgs a 4th place team finish for the day and secured 5th place overall out of all high schools from Salinas north to the Oregon border.
Other strong overall finishers for the 2013 race series were Lauren Schulman, 10th place Varsity Girls; Seth Francis, 10th place Varsity Boys; Emily Laskin, 9th place JV girls; Walker Busby, 11th place JV boys; and Evan Prahm 16th Place JV boys.
The Bike Dawgs will compete one final time this season in the State Championship race at Stafford Lake in Novato on May 20th.
