Tanish Chettiar and coach Michael Davidson are all smiles at the junior nationals.

Tanish Chettiar’s standout performance in cross-country earned him a trip cross country last month.

The Los Altos resident qualified for the USA Track & Field National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships in Hoover, Ala.

The Mountain View girls finished just behind St. Francis at state.

Mountain View High’s Serena Myjer ran her best race at the right time. The junior set a personal record at Saturday’s state cross-country championships in Fresno.

With what coach Craig Blockhus called “a strong showing,” Myjer finished the 3.1-mile Woodward Park course in 18 minutes, 46 seconds. That was good enough for 37th place in the Division II girls race; only one other Central Coast Section runner did better among the 192 entrants in the race.

The Mountain View High girls cross-country team – from left, Shannon Gould, Alex Brown, Gabrielle Joffe, Serena Myjer, Amber Fry and Audrey White – won the league finals last week.

Based on how well the local cross-country teams performed at their respective league finals last week at Crystal Springs, they must be elated that Saturday’s Central Coast Section championships will be there, too.

Placing four runners among the top 10, the Mountain View High girls captured the SCVAL El Camino Division championship Nov. 1 at Crystal Springs in Belmont. The Spartans beat runner-up Gunn by six points.
