Track teams does well, records set
Hi All Mustangs,
Its has been about three months since I last spoke to you all about the goings on in track and field arena of our team. I’ll try my best to give you a quick chronological update on where we stand at this juncture of the season.
This year was our first year being in DAL (DeAnza Athletic League) which is considered the strong league. The going was rough all season long as we try to get acclimated, hence our 4 wins and 24 losses in all combined divisions in League track meets.
At our DAL Champions just concluded on Tuesday and Thursday at Los Gatos HS this past week, we finished 4th in VarsityGirls with 51 points, 5th in JVGirls with 57 points, 7th in VarsityBoys with 25 points, and 4th in Frosh/Soph Boys with 75 points.
We just concluded SCVAL Qualifier on Friday at Los Gatos HS, and the top 6 in each event advance to CCS Trials set for May 21st at Gilroy HS. On Friday we had 29 athletes that made it to the Qualifier, and we came away with 6 athletes qualifying in their respective events. They are Miranda Zinola, Jr. (VG Discus), Kento Takahasi, Sr. (VB Shot Put), Daniel Graves, Sr. (VB 1600), Ryan Ma, FR. (VB 1600m), Elena Kamas, Soph. (VG 1600M) and Lindsay Allen, JR. (VG1600m).
During the regular season our athletes made an assault on the Homestead Track and Field record books. Below are the records that fell during the season:
Ryan Ma: broke the Freshman Boys 1600m record (4:34.4, set in 1987 by Matt Ringer) which stood for 29 years five times this year so far. He ran 4:25.30 for the 1600m on Friday night to advance to CCS Trials. Just a heads up on Ryan. He’s 3 secs away from breaking the CCS freshman record of 4:22.84 set in 1992.
VG 4 x 1600m Relay, comprised of Lindsay Allen, Jr., Katie Williams, Fr., Rebecca Hasser, Soph., and Elena Kamas, Soph. broke the school record by 25 secs. at the Arcadia Invitational in April this year.
Now we move onto CCS Trials set for May 21st at Gilroy HS. Stay tuned for an update on how we do. Thanks.Coach Sealy.
