It was certainly a day for repeats Thursday at the Tri-County Athletic League cross country championships.
In the girls race, Spencer Moore won her fourth straight individual league title as the Panthers also defended their TCAL championship team title at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline.
Moore was first in the 2.96-mile race with a time of 18 minutes, 2 seconds. She was the Bay Shore Athletic League individual champion as a freshman and sophomore before winning the TCAL title last year.
St. Joseph Notre Dame’s Veronica Aguila was the runner-up in 18:41, followed by the Panthers’ Chloe Jenkins (third, 19:09) and Julia English (fourth, 19:38).
Gabe Arias-Sheridan and St. Joseph Notre Dame successfully defended their TCAL titles in the boys race.
Arias-Sheridan, a senior, won the 2.96-mile race in 15 minutes, 4 seconds as the Pilots took the first four places and finished with an outstanding score of 17. Michael Murphy (15:39), Matthew Murphy (15:42) and Cooper Teare (15:44) completed the top four for St. Joseph Notre Dame. Besides his two TCAL individual cross country titles, Arias-Sheridan won the BSAL boys individual title as a freshman.

EDIT: Pittsburg High running back Harris Ross will miss tonight’s game against Deer Valley and possibly the rest of the season after re-injuring his right leg at practice this week. Last week, Ross became Pittsburg’s all-time rushing leader, but posted on Twitter Friday that he fractured his right fibula, confirming an earlier report of his injury.
“God give me the strength and ability to get through this injury so I can return this season in playoffs,” Ross posted to Twitter on Friday afternoon.
Pittsburg is playing undefeated Deer Valley for first place in the Bay Valley Athletic League.

Original post: Pittsburg High star running back Harris Ross suffered a leg injury at practice and is questionable for Friday’s game against Deer Valley, according to CBS/MaxPreps’ Mitch Stephens on Twitter today. Stephens wrote in a following tweet that he got the news from Pittsburg coach Victor Galli.
Ross broke three school records (career rushing yards, career touchdowns, single season rushing yards) in a 272-yard, three-touchdown performance last Friday against Freedom (a 34-13 Pittsburg victory). The Oregon State-bound Ross, who earlier this season rushed for a North Coast Section-record 464 yards in a 49-29 win over Monte Vista, has 1,827 yards rushing this season.
Galli was unable to be reached for comment by the Bay Area News Group about the reported injury.

The California Interscholastic Federation Federated Council have forwarded a proposal to limit practice time for high school sports and have a contact time allowance for coaches, CIF Executive Director Roger Blake said in a media conference call this afternoon.
“The time and commitment for kids to be involved in high school sports can be out of control,” Blake said.
“We are looking at the total contact time (being) 18 hours a week. … I don’t think this proposal that goes forward will impact 90-percent of the coaches. Maybe I’m being naive.”
As far as contact by high school coaches, Blake said, “The academic side that coaches help kids with, that is not included.” He said that watching film and lifting weights would both count toward the proposed 18-hours-a-week limit.
Blake said that the Federated Council will be looking at a complete first draft of the proposal at their Jan. 31 meeting, and that he doesn’t see the proposal being voted on until May.
It was also mentioned that at the January 31 meeting, there will be a vote about starting a state swimming and diving championship in the spring of 2015.

Salesian High boys basketball player Jonathan Galloway has orally committed to UC Irvine. The 6-foot-10 center narrowed down his college choices to Irvine, University of the Pacific and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo before choosing the Anteaters.
“I really liked the visit when I went there,” Galloway said. “I felt like it was a good fit.”
Galloway averaged 5.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and more than one block a game last season for 30-4 Salesian.
