Boys' 6400m Relay Team Races to Runner-Up Finish, All-Time Record
Landing a spot in the "Invitational" section of the 6400m Relay at Friday night's Mt. San Antonio College Relays along side Southern Section rivals and DIII defending State Champion Barstow High School, as well as perennial powers from Don Bosco Tech, Ayala and recent DI giant Arcadia, the Cougars made the most of the opportunity.
Ross Geiger (09) completed an evenly paced 4:27.0 lead-off leg in fourth place while the Flotrackr commentators hyped the Barstow leaders on the web site's real time world wide internet broadcast of the event. Garret Homes (09) followed with a daring 63 second lap before settling at the rear of the lead group and then closing hard to maintain the team's position.
Michael Brondello's (09) bold push in the final stages of his leg brought the squad into third place, narrowing the gap on the Barstow yellow, before handing off to Robert Pulford (09), who dropped five seconds off his previous best to blow by the Barstow anchor runner and challenge Arcadia for the lead through the last lap.
The end result was a runner-up finish in 17:49.1ce to take down the school record set four years prior in the same race and a trumping of the DIII darlings of the southland.
