No cross country runner the past four years in the Mt. Baldy League has been more dominant than Chino High’s Mia Chavez. 

The senior headed to the University of Arizona in the fall won her third individual league championship last Saturday with a time of 17:41.2, leading from start to finish on the 3.1-mile course at Colony High in Ontario. 

Chavez won the league title as a freshman in 2018, as a sophomore in 2019, but the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to league meets in 2020. 

In the team standings, Ontario won the league title with 37 points, Chaffey took second at 61 points and Chino placed third with 65 points to earn automatic qualifying spots into the CIF-Southern Section Preliminaries, which are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 12 (Divisions 2, 4, 5) and Saturday, Nov. 13 (Divisions 1, 3) at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. 

The CIF-Southern Section Finals will take place on the same course on Saturday, Nov. 20 with the CIF State Meet Saturday, Nov. 27 at Woodward Park in Clovis. 

In the boys’ race, Don Lugo High’s Jordan Berkley won the individual title and Robbie Valdez placed second to lead the Conquistadores to the Mt. Baldy League team title. 

Berkley finished in 16:01.2 with Valdez at 16:06.4. 

Chaffey took second and Chino placed third in the team standings.
