Joseph Pearlman of Dos Pueblos finished seventh in the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 boys cross country finals on Saturday in Riverside and qualified for the CIF State Meet.

Pearlman ran the 3.25-mile course in 15:15.5 and earned a spot in the State Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno next Saturday.

"He has a really good finish," said DP boys coach Nash Jimenez.

Nathaniel Getachew of the Chargers finished 19th in 15:26.5.

"Nathaniel was good position near the end but fell with 400 meters to go and couldn't recover the places after that," sand Jimenez.

The Chargers finished 12th as a team and missed advancing to state. 

Foster Young finished 100th in 16:31 followed by Logan Beckstrand (104, 16:34.5), Henry Urshel (119, 16:45.6), Steffan Evans (134, 17:05.9) and Peter Speier (163, 17:36.1).

"We were hoping for a better place for the team," said coach Micks Purnell. "All the girls ran faster than in the prelim and improved the team time by over a minute. But all the other teams ran faster, too.

"Josie Morales had a PR and Maddie Choi and Ella Kenly had season bests."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
