Runner Alex Alvarez '23 Makes History

Congratulations to Alex Alvarez ’23 who competed at the CIF State Cross Country Championships on November 27. Alex ran the 5k Woodward Park course in Fresno in a time of 16:12.4, the #4 top time in La Salle history for the state meet! He placed 32nd out of the 211 runners who qualified for the state finals, in a division made up of about 280 schools and 2,000 varsity runners statewide. Alex competed at the Cross Country CIF Finals on November 20 where he placed 5th in the division in a time of 15:27.8 for the 3-mile course, a PR that moves him up to #4 in school history for the Mt. SAC course, and earned him a CIF medal for finishing in the top 15 out of 116 runners who participated in the divisional finals.
