1967 Cross Country Team
The 1967 team was the crowning achievement of a long line of great individual runners for the Pilots. This was a true team accomplishment however, requiring the effort of seven individuals. The Pilots swept past Alameda, Arroyo, De La Salle, Granada, Moreau, O’Dowd, Piedmont, Salesian and Saint Mary’s on their way to an undefeated season. Only Arroyo came within twenty points of the Pilots as they swept through fifth place over four and their last five opponents before the Catholic Athletic League Meet held at Cal State Hayward. The league meet was even more impressive, as the Pilots secured five of the top seven places with their 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7 finishes, establishing a record and reputation that continues to this day. This was the first league Championship of any kind of St. Joseph High School in over 25 years and it opened the floodgates of the “modern era” as the Pilots established their athletic dominance with other championships.
