Varsity girls placed tenth out of fifteen teams and varsity boys placed seventh out of twelve teams. Pacific Grove qualified for this meet at the MTAL Championships, located at Toro Park on November 5, in which varsity and junior varsity competed. Christina Hashimoto, Anna Stefanou, Henry Loh, and Everett Millette received medals for placing in the top ten varsity girls and boys. In the varsity races, Pacific Grove girls placed second out of twelve teams and Pacific Grove boys placed third out of fourteen teams.

November 19 marked the Cross Country Awards Night and potluck. Certificates were given to each team member along with an encouraging speech from Mr. Light about each runner. Varsity runners received blocks in addition to the certificates. Varsity girls team captain, Anna Stefanou, and varsity boys team captain, Douglas Dow, presented Mr. Light and Mr. Watkins with cards and gifts from the team. The awards night concluded with food and conversation, and the 2015 Cross Country Season officially ended.
