After winning the Mount Hood Conference Championship for the 12th straight year and bringing home the 6A state championship for the sixth time in 10 years, the Ram boys are hoping to continue their recent success. Led by senior Kyle Thompson, who is currently the number 5 high school runner in the country, senior Dante Dalla Gasperina, juniors Sam Lomax, Sam Truax, and Jean Baptiste-Tooley, and sophomore Daniel Thompson, Central Catholic is determined to earn championships at the conference and state level and earn top spots in national competitions.

“Our athletes believe in each other and believe in the program as a whole; our tradition of success has been forged by great runners before them, and this group feels a great responsibility to and a connection with some of those individuals and teams of the past decade,” says Dave Frank, the head coach.

Central Catholic’s runners have been diligent in their training, logging hundreds of miles in the summer. Many of their athletes attended the Steens Mountain Running Camp in July as well as a training camp in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., both of which are at significant altitude. With their top six runners returning in 2013, the Rams will be a hard team to beat.

Among Ram girls, then-sophomore Julia Stevenson placed 52nd at the state meet with a 20:47. In 2012, the girls finished fifth in the Mount Hood Conference, just a few points from a third place varsity finish. With the loss of only one senior in the top seven spots on the varsity squad and still fielding a group of runners composed of mostly sophomores and juniors, the teams’ aspirations and energy are high. The girls team is aiming to make the OSAA state meet for the first time.

With several years’ experience behind them, two-time state qualifier Stevenson and Mount Hood Conference track standouts Justine Keller and Julia Green lead the way. Following is a group of sophomores who have put in a significant amount of training to battle their way into the top seven.

In four seasons, the team has grown from 11 to 35 athletes, and the talent base has deepened so that a solid 12 will fight for a top 7 position. Team members have been logging 40 miles per week.
