Lincoln High’s Destiny Everett capped her brilliant career as a cross-country runner by placing 32nd at the CIF State Meet at Woodward Park in Fresno Saturday. The senior ran as an independent after qualifying at the section meet.

Going up against the best Division II high school competition California has to offer, Everett posted a time of 18:34.0 over the 5,000-meter course. She trailed the winning time by just 72 seconds and the overall winning time by 76 seconds.

Everett is also an outstanding track star for the Fighting Zebras and could set even more records this spring.


Western Sierra Collegiate Academy also set some records this fall. The Wolves girls cross-country team won the section Division V meet held at Willow Hills Reservoir in Folsom two weeks ago.

The win qualified the team for the State Meet for the third straight time.

Junior Sara Sabra was second at sections pounding out a time of 20:13.8. Sabra placed 18th at state in a time of 19:48.2.

Senior Rhiannon Repetti crossed the finish line in third place at sections in a time of 21:30.2. Her time of 21:08.4 at state placed her 60th.

Hayley Repetti clocked in at 22:59.8 at sections for eighth place. At state, the senior came in 89th posting 22:17.8.

Cassidy Call crossed the line in 13th place at sections with a time of 23.55.2. A sophomore, Call stopped the watch at 23:40.9 at state for the 126th spot.

Junior Deana Trieu completed the team, running 14th in Folsom and setting a time of 23:56.5. Trieu was the 134th runner to finish at state, recording a time of 24.05.8.

Connor Dillner was the first boy to qualify for state in the academy’s history.

His time of 18:23.9 was good enough for third place at sections. The senior trimmed 10 seconds off his time at state for the 96th position.
