Palo Alto junior Philip MacQuitty won individual honors and led his team to the overall victory in the boys' varsity race Friday at the Monterey Bay Invitational cross-country meet at Toro Park in Salinas.
With the three-mile course the site of this season's Central Coast Section championships, Palo Alto's team effort and MacQuitty's individual performance perhaps bodes well for the section meet.
The Paly boys totaled 55 points to hold off rival Gunn (75). The two teams will meet again on Oct. 28 in the annual Palo Alto City Championships at Gunn. Both will compete against each other at the SCVAL De Anza Division and CCS meets.
MacQuitty ran 15:43 for individual honors, winning by just one second. Gunn junior Paul Summers clocked 16:35 for fifth. Also finishing among the top 10 was Paly senior Charlie Avis (eighth in 16:53), Gunn's Robert Chen (ninth in 16:55), and Gunn's Alex Johann (10th in 16:55.10).
