Youngsters Bring Numbers, Fall behind Early as Veterans Dominate Death Match
In spite of an impressive turnout for the current Campolindo and College Park athletes, the 2013 edition of the Alumni Ultimate Frisbee Death Match turned out to be more of the same as the unstoppable force of maturity scored virtually at will. As the final quarter of play expired, the Alumni enjoyed a 16 point lead, 22-6.
With the likes of David Vigil (98), Betsy Sale (01), Ashley Allen (02), Jared Oubre (04), Justin Delessert (05), Lauren Crawford (09), Kelsey Gallagher (10), and Will Holland (11) representing the Falcons, as well as Campolindo graduates that included Jason Budge (09), Michael Brondello (09), Colby Pines (09), Darren Brodowy (12), Thomas Joyce (12), Kevin Gelston (12), Juliet Farnan (12), and Andy VanHeuit (13), the youngsters had their hands full.
The contest began with a quick score from the current athletes. Unfortunately for them, it was their only lead of the day. What followed was a brutal offensive assault by the veterans.
Nevertheless, in the spirit of the holidays, fun and goodtimes were enjoyed be all.

Article on Tom Hale's 3200m Found by Lynbrook Webmaster Hank Lawson
Hank Lawson, webmaster of the LynbrookSports.com web site, which includes a comprehensive history of California track & field, forwarded this clipping from the 1970 season, in which Campolindo's Tom Hale (71) improved his two-mile time by ten seconds.
Hale went on to finish fourth in the two-mile at the state championships the following year, improving his mark to 8:57.2, which, converted to 8:54.0c for 3200m, still stands as the school record.
