Lady Mariners Cross Country Coach Shares Outlook for New Season!

Cross-Country team to compete in Vaquero Invitational @ Lindo Lakes-Lakeside this Saturday in Season Opener!

Boys start at 9am and girls start 20 minutes later.

The Lady Mariners are returning 5 seniors this year and have 9 new freshman runners that have joined the team.  She said Head Cross Country Coach Benny Holt had asked her to help out and that she couldn't pass up on he experience she would get learning from a legend like him. Estella mentioned that some of their runners are doing ROTC as well as well as playing multiple sports at Mar Vista. The one thing she learned from Benny that has become an important teaching with the Mar Vista Cross Country is that as long as you do your best and finish the race, you have achieved one of your major goals of the team. 

Estrella said that Benny even coached her cousins when they went to school here at Mar Vista.
