Patterson High runner Nathan Stanton remained unbeaten Oct. 2 when he claimed the top spot at the Escalon Invitational at Woodward Reservoir to improve his 2013 meet record to 6-0. Stanton finished first overall, covering the 3.1-mile course, which followed trails around Oakdale, in 17 minutes and 12 seconds.

Patterson’s boys cross country runners built on that success to finish fifth as a team. Antonio Venegas was the Tigers’ next finisher in the run. His time of 17:53 secured a fourth-place finish. Teammate Dylan Halland was close behind, finishing 38th in a time of 20:09.

Patterson’s Jose Jaramillo (62nd) finished in 22:32. Alex Beruman (65th, 22:52), Seth Dalmer (82nd, 26:05) and Daniel Arciniega (83rd, 26:08) also fared well for the Tigers.

In the girls 3.1-mile race, Patterson also placed fifth. Lupe Ventura was the first Tiger to finish, placing second with a time of 21:31. Brenda Vargas took 18th with a time of 17:42, while Alejandra Carrasco, in 31st place overall, clocked in at 25:19.

Also contributing to the Patterson score were Jenevy Esqueda (33rd, 25:31), Eriah Lano-Nutter (45th, 27:19) and Carina Sotelo (54th, 28:29).

Steven Halseth led Patterson to a second-place team showing in the sophomore boys 2-mile trek, winning the race at 12:32. Teammate Tomas Virgen came in fourth for the Tigers (12:56), followed by Sean Hicks (11th, 13:29).

Patterson's junior varsity girls did not have enough runners for a team score, however, Carla Cordero (11th) timed 26:25 over the 3.1-mile course. Teammate Lanaeya Banks (17th) ran the course in 28:40, and Michelle Martinez (19th) finished at 29:58.
