Menlo School-Atherton – Cross Country – Senior Robert Miranda
Miranda won the West Bay Athletic League meet at Crystal Springs on Oct. 5, covering 2.95 miles in a course-record 15 minutes and 21.1 seconds. Two days later, he took first at the Artichoke Invitational in Half Moon Bay. He conquered the 2.3-mile course in 11:49. This was the best time of the day and the fifth fastest time ever on that course.
Miranda has won all four meets he has entered this season. He also took gold in the Pacific Tiger Invitational held in Stockton. Miranda was unable to compete in the Central Coast Section Cross Country championships a season ago. But he made up for it during the spring by winning the 3200 meters at the CCS Track and Field Championships. Furthermore, he won the event with a time of 9:10.26. This was a little more than a second faster than second-place Kent Slaney of Palo Alto.
