The Padre Cross Country opened their WCAL season yesterday at Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, and not only did they have to face their stiffest competition to date, they also had to overcome temperatures reaching 88 degrees.  Both were too much to overcome for the Padres as the Varsity, JV, and Sophomore teams all place 4th in their respected divisions,  while the Freshman team had to settle for a 5th place finish.  Junior Matthew Herrera, once again turned in the best performance of the day, competing the 5k course in a time of 16:31. Herrera's time was the 7th fastest time of the day on the course.  The Padres hope to build upon the experience of having their first league meet under their belt, when they head to Del Oro High School this Saturday and compete at the Del Oro Invite.  Good luck Padres!
