Last updated 9/29/2006 at Noon

Fallbrook High School junior Bret Hasvold had a time of 15:36 at the Laguna Hills Invitational cross-country meet September 9 to lead all runners from the 45 participating schools.

The race, which divided runners by grades and divisions, did not include official team scores, but had official scores been posted for each class Fallbrook would have won the Division I junior race. Todd Van Duzer finished third among Division I juniors with a time of 15:48.

“This is a tremendous class,” Fallbrook coach Marty Hauck said of his juniors.

Had the scores been official, Fallbrook would have finished fourth among the 45 schools. The unofficial winner was El Toro High School, which is ranked second in the state. “We were in pretty good company,” Hauck said.

Hasvold and Van Duzer were separated by Zak Wienberg of Yucaipa High School, who completed the three-mile course in 15:40. In addition to being third among Division I juniors, Van Duzer was also tenth among runners from all divisions and grades.

Three other Fallbrook juniors placed among the top twenty-five. Sam Liner was 12th at 16:56, Kevin Strickladen placed 13th with a time of 16:59, and Sean Wood came in 23rd with a time of 17:41. A total of 91 Division I juniors participated in the Laguna Hills Invitational.

The top 40 runners in each class earned medals, and Fallbrook’s seniors also captured five medals. Vinny Granata led the Warrior seniors with a time of 16:18, which placed ninth among the 64 senior Division I runners. Tim Eves was 11th at 16:48, Forrest Whitfield placed 20th with a time of 17:08, Darren Hansen had a time of 17:58 to finish 29th, and James Bunts came in 30th with a time of 17:59.

The 99 Division I sophomores included two Fallbrook medalists. Uriel Aguirre was eighth with a time of 17:02 and Darrik Turner placed 39th at 18:21.

Fallbrook had two freshman medalists; Richard Wojan had a time of 18:47 to place 24th among the 117 runners while Cameron Mannino’s time of 18:50 was worth 27th place.

“To do that well they’ve got the potential to run at the varsity level in a year or so,” Hauck said of his freshmen runners.
