Mostatabi Leads Off Girl's DMR, Brennan Anchors 3200 Relay for Pair of School Records at Stanford; Geiger Splits 2 Minutes
Friday afternoon's distance events at Cobb track on the Stanford University campus provided the first opportunity for Campolindo's vaunted endurance athletes to take their crack at the distance medley relay in 2008. Sara Mostatabi (11) opened the girl's attempt at the record books with a break-neck first lap before battling through the resulting fatigue to hand off the baton at 3:54 for 1200m. Katie Shulenberger (10) continued the charge with a solid 400m effort, then passed off to Olivia Warren (10), who threw down two laps in 2:23.5 to keep the record pace. Grace Orders (11) capped the all-time performance by covering the final four laps in 5:15.6 to finish 5th overall in the elite division.
Ross Geiger (09) shook off a recalled start after tumbling to the track on the first turn of the boys' DMR. His second go-around had the Cougars in fifth place at the exchange. Daniel Murray (08) followed with a 51.2 for the single lap before Michael Brondello (09) and Robert Pulford (09) held on for 9th place.
The excitement continued Saturday, first with a fine 44.16 clocking in the boys' 400 relay, and then as Shulenberger, Warren and Orders teamed up with Emily Brennan (10) to set a new school record in the 3200 relay. Brennan's 2:24.1 split dropped over six seconds from her previous 800m best!
