High School Roundup: Solid finish for locals

The Edison High girls' cross-country team ran to an 11th-place finish in Division 1 Saturday at the CIF State Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno.

Junior Julia Sienski led the Edison contingent at State with a run of 17:54 to garner a 14th-place individual finish. Other individual finishes for the Chargers were senior Gabrielle Yatauro (18:59), senior Alexa Yatauro (19:18), senior Sara Zylstra (19:18), junior Mac Queenenville (19:48), senior Cassy Borton (20:04), and sophomore Riley Bennyworth (20:12).

Fiona O'Keeffe, a sophomore at Davis Senior High (CIF San Joaquin Section), won the girls' Division 1 race in 16:59.

The Chargers finished with 325 team points in the division, which was won by a Great Oak.

Edison advanced to the state meet by taking seventh place in the Division 1 team standings at the CIF Southern Section Championships Nov. 23 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut.

Great Oak also won the Southern Section girls' Division 1 title.

In the Division 1 boys' race, Fountain Valley junior Norberto Osorio, who qualified individually for the state meet, took 13th place with a time of 15:33.

Arcadia won the State Division 1 boys' championship.

Girls' Water Polo

Edison, which started the season ranked No. 9 in CIF Southern Section Division 1, fell, 10-3, to Rosary in its season opener Nov. 26 at Ocean View High.

"Opening against a very good Rosary team challenged us not only physically, but more importantly, mentally," Edison Coach Diggy Riley said. "We were prepared, but just came out mentally a little lost, especially on the counter defending aspect of the game. Our reaction time was way off.

"We will regroup and prepare for another very tough two weeks."

The Chargers go to San Clemente for a 3:15 p.m. nonleague game Thursday. They play host to both Santa Barbara (10 a.m.) and La Jolla (noon) Saturday at Ocean View High.

Santa Barbara is ranked No. 7 in Division 1.
