You can forgive the Roosevelt boys if they have a down season in 2018 - after all, they are coming off a spectacular 2017 that saw them finish 2nd in the Division 1 state meet and travel to Portland for Nike Cross Nationals, where they finished 15th. More important for this profile, however, is the fact that the Mustangs graduated a whopping 6 of their top 11 runners from last fall. As you might expect after such a big loss to graduation, depth will be the major obstacle to continued success for Roosevelt. Rising freshman Andres Chavez will help, as he has a PR of 9:24 for 3000 in club competition. Returning #1 runner Raul Chavez (no relation) has big shoes to fill, but he looks ready after clocking 9:22 in the 3200 on the track. This has been one of California's better teams when it comes to year-to-year improvement over the last 3 cross country seasons, so don't count the Mustangs out in 2018!
