Menlo School pair earns NorCal honors in cross country


Menlo School athletes Lizzie Lacy and Robert Miranda have been named NorCal Cross Country Runner of the Year in their respective divisions on Thursday.

It was a pair of firsts for Menlo School's cross-country program. Lacy and Miranda are the first Knights to be chosen NorCal runners of the year in the history of the awards, which date to 1953.

The athletes are selected by a panel of section leaders, including Central Coast, San Francisco, Central, North, North Coast, Oakland, as well as cross-country experts from PrepCal Track.

Lacy was chosen All-NorCal Runner of the Year - senior girl. Lacy won the Central Coast Section Division IV championship, took third at state, third at the Foot Locker Western Regional and 10th at the national championships.

Miranda was named NorCal Runner of the Year for freshman boys. Miranda finished 11th overall as the first freshman to cross the line at the CCS Championships, placed 27th at the state meet, and was fifth among freshman at the Foot Locker Western Regional.
