NorCal Finals Date: 1985
Overcast skies and a rain-soaked course failed to dampen the competition at the Eighth Annual Northern California CIF Cross Country Championships held on Sierra College's (Rocklin) scenic three mile course. Extensive efforts by officials prior to the race to drain ponded water from some of the muddier portions of the route allowed the race to remain on the regular course. Despite the less than perfect conditions' Gunderson's Laurie Chapman cut almost six seconds off the course and meet records with an outstanding 16:47.8 to maintain her undefeated season. Senior Rebecca Chamberlain (Leigh, SJ), the defending champion and former course record holder, attempted to stay with Chapman through the first mile, covered in 5:13.1, but the Gunderson senior was too strong pulling away to an impressive 48 second victory. The Central Coast Section dominated the girls' individual placings with the top seven finishers coming from the southern part of the Bay Area, including senior Shannon Clark (Mt View) who finished second in this race the last three years and third this year. In the team competition, senior Monica Daley (Los Gatos) let her teammates to their second consecutive championship, the first double winner in meet history. The young team of Monica Daley, sophomore Darcy Parker, freshman twins Sara and Stephanie Hartman, and freshman Jennifer Jocelyn scored an extremely low 61 points with Leland (San Jose) edging out Bella Vista (Fair Oaks) for second place 105 to 108 points.
With the results of all the section qualifying meets in hand, it appeared that Jesuit (Carmichael) seniors Eric and Mark Mastalir would once again be racing each other for championship honors. A two week bout with knee tendonitis prevented Eric, the course record holder at 14:28.1, from competeing in the race thwarting his opportunity for the individual championship and Jesuit's chance for the team championship. Other top qualifiers included undefeated North Coast Section champion, senior Chris Hoepker (Encinal, Alameda), senior Adam McAboy (Miramonte, Orinda), the North Coast Section runnerup. Senior Scott LaForce (Los Gatos), an impressive victor in the Central Coast Section, senio Mike Wall (Lassen, Susanville). The Northern Section champion, and Central Section standouts junior Jason Lineau (Clovis) and Jesse Lianes (McLane, Fresno) and David Naranjo (Sanger). McLane's Jesse Lianes was the early leader posting 4:28.2 for the first mile followed by a large pack led by Mark Mastalir close behind. Mastalir quickly made up the distance extending his lead with a 9:34.3 two mile and finishing with a personal record 14:40.5, lowering his previous mark for the number four individual and performance in course history. Adam McAboy (Miramonte, Orinda) finished a strong second in 14:52.3 with Vallejo junior Mason Meyers the top underclassman in third with a 14:55.3 clocking. Individually this was one of the fastest races in Northern California meet history with four runners under the 15:00 barrier and the top eight breaking 15:15.0.
The team race was to be a battle of the State's best ( parochial school or otherwise) matching Jesuit (Carmichael), the Sac-Joaquin Section champion, Bellarmine (San Jose), the Central Coast Section champion; Bishop Moreau (Hayward), champions of the North Coast Section, and Lassen (Susanville), the Northern Section Champion and defending Northern California and State Champions. With the tight finishing group of senior Mark Callon (19th), sophomore Ian Champeny (25th) , junior Rob Meinhardt (27th), sophomore Torre Pena (32nd), and junior Scott Robinson (57th), Bellarmine captured its first-ever Northern California Championship edging Moreau by five points, 85 to 91. Lassen, hampered by the loss of number two runner Tom Estes to injury, finished third with 133 points.
