CIF XC: Smith leads Chargers to 3rd at State meet

Dos Pueblos’ Cole Smith was right in the thick of things at Saturday’s CIF State Cross Country Championships in Fresno, as the Dos Pueblos senior recorded a 5th-place result in the Division-2 race.

Smith’s time of 15 minutes and 23 seconds was just three seconds from a runner-up finish. Villa Park’s Garrett Corcoran won the State individual title in 15:09. Orange Glen’s Andrew Tellames was second in 15:20.

Smith helped lead the Chargers to a third-place team finish, one better than last year. Dos Pueblos was behind champion Saugus and Westlake. Smith overcame several competitors in the final stretch to improve on his 6th-place finish at last week’s Southern Section Finals.

Andrew McGuan, coming in 31st, was the next-best Charger with a time of 15:53. Chris Wasjutin, John Greening and Ian Wasjutin rounded out Dos Pueblos’ top five.
