1996 PREP PREVIEW / BOYS' CROSS-COUNTRY | SIX TEAMS
TO WATCH

Santa Margarita

September 07, 1996

Coach: Dave Zeitler (eighth year).

1995: Fourth in Southern Section Division II-A; Sea View League champion; 5-0 league dual-meet record.

Key returners: Chris Caulfield, Jr.; Michael Murray, Sr.; Jeff Paulsen, Sr.; Jimmy Speranza, Jr.; Brandon Von Guenthner, Jr.; Tyson Von Guenthner, Sr.

Key newcomers: Drew Bordages, Sr.; Cory Collins, So.; Chad Edgley, So.; Matt Mattera, Jr.; Brian Salgado, So.

Outlook: The Eagles were the class of their league last year and look to move into county dominance this season. Led by Murray, the Times Orange County's cross-country athlete of the year last fall, they have the talent to challenge for a section title. Murray won the league and Southern Section Division II-A titles before finishing fifth at the state meet a year ago. Brandon Von Guenthner, 13th at the league meet last fall, is expected to be the team's No. 2 runner. Caulfield and Tyson Von Guenthner give the Eagles one of the deepest teams in the county. Collins won the frosh/soph league title in the 1,600 meters in track last spring.
