2018 Cross Country


The Golden Knights return to action this fall with a hardened resolve for success.  Their goal continues to be a return visit to the post-season CIF Championships, one that has been just out of reach for the last few seasons.


This year’s team returns eight athletes who competed at the Varsity level last season.  Several of those athletes come off very strong track seasons last spring.  St. Francis will be led by last season’s MVP, Junior Stuart Serventi.  Serventi comes off a strong track season clocking a 2:00.11 800m Personal Record at the always tough Mission League Finals where he was the top Sophomore finisher.  Additionally, Seniors Nico Ciranna, Mitchell Valine, and Sean Wilcox, Junior Jason Suh, and Sophomores Lars Martin and Brady McNulty will be back in action on Varsity this fall.  A new cadre of freshmen will join the ranks of the returning Golden Knights looking to earn their way into the program’s history.


After a great summer of training the athletes are looking forward to starting the racing season.  With the top runners logging over 450 miles this summer, this should be a memorable season for the Golden Knights.


Coach Patrick Donovan, ’03, who begins his 12th season as the Golden Knight’s coach, is excited about the upcoming season:  “It’s a blessing to be back again coaching these boys.  I can’t remember a prior season where we had this many varsity athletes returning. It’s very encouraging to see the level of experience the team has coming into the season.  They have been working hard all summer, and it will pay dividends this fall. I can’t wait to see them turn some heads in the Mission League.”
