2015 Green Valley Boys Cross Country Capsule


League: Division I Southeast

Head coach: Bud Beam, first season

Returning lettermen: Six

Top athletes: Austin Rogers (Sr.), Leonardo Rubi (Jr.), Omar Rubio (Jr.), Dartanyon Jones (Jr.), Milton Amezcua (So.), Jesus Narcisco (So.)

Outlook: The Gators return six lettermen from a team that surprised some when it finished second to nationally-ranked McQueen in the Division I state meet last year.

Rogers was the Sunrise Region champion and placed fourth at state, and Rubi finished second in the region meet and 15th at state for Green Valley, which should benefit from the return of Rubio, who did not run last year due to injury.
