The Central Coast Section record for rushing yards in a season could be broken Saturday.
Capuchino's Justin Ewing has 2,520 yards after nine games. That's an average of 280 yards per game. If Ewing, a 195-pound senior, rushes for 280 on Saturday against Mills, it would bring him to an even 2,800. The CCS season record is 2,798 by Burlingame's Onan Reyes in 1997.
Reyes set his mark in 12 games. The others on the CCS top-five list -- Garret Zeiter and Nick Kalpin of Los Gatos, Toke Kefu and Albert Tuipulotu of San Mateo -- all played 12 or 13 games.
Ewing has a chance to eclipse them all in 10 games.
Capuchino has clinched the Peninsula Athletic League Lake Division's berth into the CCS playoffs, so Ewing should get the opportunity to play in at least one more game.
The strategy worked like a charm Monday as Xu birdied the first playoff hole to win the CIF Northern California individual title at Brookside Country Club in Stockton.
"Winning the championship was very shocking," the junior said. "I went out there and played my own game and let what happened happen."
If she wins the state championship, Xu said it would be like fulfilling an unexpected dream.
"It would be amazing," she said.
"There is no way I could have envisioned us putting up these kind of numbers the first year," Lugo said.
