WALNUT - The list of impressive local results were stacked pretty high thanks to several standout efforts during the two-day long 64th annual Mt. San Antonio College Cross-Country Invitational. It's hard to argue any result was more impressive than what La Salle High's Daniel De La Torre mustered, as the junior won his Division IV red race Friday afternoon with the local-best mark of 15 minutes, 35 seconds. “After the first mile, I looked behind me and noticed that no one was behind me,” said De La Torre, who earned the coveted tin bell given only to a race winner.

Last year's Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC) Cross Country Invitational meet was billed as "the biggest high school cross country meet in the nation." This year's running, the 59th Mt. SAC meet, outdid that proclamation by announcing itself as 'The largest [meet] on the globe," a credible claim as it hosted more than 24,000 runners in 97 races in a day-and-a-half of competition. Among the throngs were 46 La Cañada High harriers running in eight races to test their readiness for the upcoming league final and post season contests.

La Cañada High cross country continued their impressive run this season at Mt. San Antonio College Cross Country Invitational as the boys’ team came in fifth and the girls’ team came in eighth overall in the Division 3 team sweepstakes races. On the boys’ side, Aayush Shah put on a good show for the Spartans, coming in seventh overall for the boys at 16 minutes, 3 seconds, barely edging eighth place finisher Mueen Ghoury of Rubidoux (16:03). But what kept La Cañada up at the top in the boys’ section was the performance of the back half of the team—no La Cañada runner finished below 77th place of the 146 runners.
