The Jackrabbits rebounded to win the last two meets for its ninth consecutive championship. “We already know we train for the end of the season,” Durham said. “This year, we already beat them and so it looks that much better for later. That’s what pushes us because we don’t want to be the team that ends the streak.” The defending champion Poly girls went 6-0. Poly lifted by senior Tava Tedesco who won in 20:48 held off Wilson, 26-29, to overcome a 3-4 finish by Jamie Emery (21:48) and Ashley Hobelman (21:50). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Brothers Aaron, a 2000 graduate, and Bryan, a 2002, graduate were members on the 1998 Poly state champion team. “We want to get that streak to a decade for Poly,” Ethan Durham said. “What they have done is always on the back of my mind. (My brothers) have talked to me about it and not to mess it up.” Durham was in fourth over two loops of the hilly, three circuit course before overtaking Wilson’s C.J. Brewer and Casey McCombs. Poly coach Mike Fillipow emphasized a conservative start on the challenging course and warm conditions. “We talked about how this was race to be run, but they ran it to perfection,” Fillipow said. “I was blown away by it.” Thursday’s competition was the first of three league meets, culminating with the finals worth 50 percent on Nov. 3. Poly defeated Wilson, 25-30, to avenge a defeat to the Bruins in the first league meet last fall. The Poly High boys cross country team’s dominance of the Moore League has spanned three CIF State Division I titles over the last decade and a generation of four members of the Durham family. Senior Ethan Durham continued the tradition in the first Moore League cluster meet at Discovery Well Park in Signal Hill on Thursday.
