The Boca Warriors Squad put on another strong performance this past weekend at The 40th Annual Spanish River Invitational.
[ quick note: thanks to all the parents who took the time to take some great pictures and videos, not only of their own kids, but others too ... these make a big difference in sharing these memories and accomplishments with our friends and family of the great work all our kids do ]

Middle School Boys
We didn't have any Middle School boys on the podium -- but we had great performances from what was essentially an Elementary Team, with only one 7th grader, Erik Moss, and one 6th grader, Sebastian Morales.
Our mostly Elementary team still placed 6th out of 20 Middle School Teams. This is really an incredible accomplishment by this relatively young team against some pretty talented and experienced teams. Proud of these boys!
The order of finish for our top boys out of 281 runners:
Erik Moss 17th
Mason Polonia 5th grader, 36th
Mark Barba 4th gr, 39th
Dylan Vining 5th gr, 44th
Christian Delprado, 5th gr, 69th
Sebastian Morales, 98th
Liam Sierra, 4th gr. 110th
Toby Morales 3rd gr., 117th
David Martin, 4th gr. 198th
Michael Morilla , 5th gr. 205th.
Some of the guys
This race didn't have a specific elementary event. However, our Girls' Elementary Team looks more and more like a State Champion Team as they contributed to the success of the Middle School team.
In the Boys' 1A High School Varsity 5K Race, we had 3 Boca Warrior Alumni running for their high school teams, representing the Warriors well !
Junior Hunter Morgan took 1st place with a new PR of 16:27:68.
Freshman Scott Sanok took 6th place with a new PR of 17:55:29 - smashing his previous time by 1 minute 15 seconds. ---- Scott also just missed the award for Best Young Runner by 1 spot.
Freshman Gio Garcia took 9th place, with a new PR of 18:09:62 - besting his previous best time by 20 seconds.
