Similar last names lead Comets to same result
WALNUT – When the Newman Comets boys cross country team last won a Three Rivers title, the top two runners were a Reyes and a Trancoso.
Three years later, the first names might be different, but the results are very much the same. Micah Trancoso, Bryson Reyes and Quincy Coomes all placed in the top seven Tuesday in Walnut to give the Comets their third TRAC championship, and first since back-to-back victories in 2008-09.
"Coach [Val Gassman] always treats this as another state meet for us," said Coomes, who placed seventh in 17:31. "I know I've got two great runners in front of me and two or three more behind me every race, and that's how you win team trophies. It feels good to do well individually, but it feels even better to place first as a team … and we're only the third Newman team to ever win conference. This is really special."
