Special to the Town Crier Los Altos High’s Owen Mac-Kenzie, above, set a school record at the Clovis Invitational. Fellow Eagle Naomi Donovan ran the second-fastest time in school history there.

The Los Altos High cross-country team has to hope its strong showing at the recent Clovis Invitational – a major meet featuring more than 100 schools from throughout the state – is a sign of things to come.

The Los Altos boys placed second in their division, tying a school record in the process, and the girls finished 19th Oct. 7 at Woodward Park in Fresno.
