The SCVAL El Camino Championships in cross country ran very true to form as the Mountain View boys ran one-two and ran away with the team title on Tuesday at Crystal Springs in Belmont.
The Spartans lived up to their pre-meet favorite's role and put four runners among the top six placers while scoring 23 points. Palo Alto, the defending team champion, was second with 54 points and Gunn was third with 70. Team scores were still unofficial as of Wednesday morning.
Mountain View junior Garrett Rowe made up for last season's race when he was edged at the finish line by Paly's Philip MacQuitty. This time Rowe won comfortably over MacQuitty by 29 seconds in 14:56. MacQuitty, still recovering from a sprained ankle, was third in 15:25. Mountain View junior Ian Myjer pushed Rowe while finishing second in 14:57. Gunn junior Paul Summers was fifth in 15:40.
