Isaacs Flings Disc to Title; Rosenthal, Girls' Relay Drop Unlikely PR's in Heat to Earn NCS Meet of Champions Spots
After adding a couple of inches to her shot put best, Eva Isaacs (10) was warmed up for her shot at the NCS Tri-Valley title at Saturday's regional championship meet at Granada High School. unfazed by the soaring afternoon temperatures, the sophomore launched the platter 107-4 to top the field comprised of DFAL, EBAL and BVAL qualifiers.
Also earning a meet crown, Stacey Jung (08) climbed to 11-7 in pole vault. Teammate Jackie Attiyeh (08) proved to be Jung's toughest competition with a runner-up mark of 10-10.
On the track, Olivia Warren (10) churned out a fifth All-Time performance in the 800m, breaking the 2:20 mark for the first time. Meanwhile, Katie Shulenberger (10) fought her way to eighth All-Time in the 300 hurdles.
In spite of the tough conditions for distance events, Lisa Rosenthal (09) executed a solid race plan to finish sixth in the 1600m while Grace Orders (09) patiently let the 3200m field melt away before closing on the heels of Carondelet's Kellie Houser for third.
The varsity girls capped their best post season showing in four years with an inspired 1600 relay effort that included 63 and 62 second splits for Ketti Selemme (09) and Emily Brennan (10) respectively.
The boys' competition was highlighted by another improvement for the 400 relay squad. With nearly perfect exchanges, the Cougar sprint quartet equaled the school record set in 1979!
Robert Pulford (09) extended his post season with a fifth place in the 3200m, setting himself up for a run at the 9:30 barrier at next Saturday's sectional finals in Edwards Stadium on the UC Berkeley campus.
