The Edison Cross Country season is in full swing. They are currently halfway finished with the season and only have a few weeks remaining until playoffs. They have been working out since the first day of school, preparing for the various races they participate in during the season. They practice on multiple terrains and conditions to emulate the feeling of running in an actual race.

Races can be as small as 50 runners, or as big as 100 runners, and the race courses can be very different depending on the location. Some courses can be mostly flat with grassy fields, and others can have hills and uneven terrain. The team consists of about 50 runners, which is the largest amount of runners the Edison Cross Country team has had in recent years.

The coaches are Coach Cal, Coach Mahackian, and Coach Wilson. Each are dedicated to the sport and put in the time/effort to bring out the best in each runner. Currently, the Edison varsity team includes Sam Hawley (17:11.8), Bryan Banuelos (16:34.5), Ben Bouchers (18:08.1), Ryan Hernandez (18:11.2), Fernando Alvarez (19:51.6), and Juan Lara (20:00.4). The times above are their personal bests for the 5k race. At the moment, Bryan and Sam are the top runners on the team. They’ve been putting up consistent times at races and usually come home with flashy medals around their necks.

The team has a really fun atmosphere where everyone supports each other. At races, everyone motivates each other and they wait for their teammates at the finish line to cheer them on. I spoke to some of the runners and many of them said their favorite aspects of the team were its culture and the diversity.
