Fall Doesn't Stop Arnswald in Hurdles; Brown Advances to Tri-Valley in Discus
After clipping her 6th barrier and tumbling to the track, Juliet Arnswald (17) picked herself up and finished her 300m hurdle race in just over 50 seconds. Though well off her personal best, it was still good enough to advance the Meet of Champions veteran to Friday's DFAL championship finals. Arnswald, who had already finished 3rd in the high jump earlier in the meet, suffered a contusion on her knee as a result of the fall.
In the discus, Mackenzie Brown (17) settled for a 4th place finish with a 95 foot toss. While 4 feet shy of her season best, the mark qualified her for the NCS Tri-Valley championships.
On the boys' side, Nick Landry (17) improved his pole vault mark to 10-7 and Jason Lin (17) lowered his 300m hurdle time under 43 seconds for the 1st time. Adding another foot to his shot put PR, Sterling Strother (16) landed the runner up position with a throw of 46-6.25.

Girls' Relay Battles to Title While Hughes Dominates Sprints at DFAL Varsity Finals
The varsity girls closed out the league season with an exciting, down-to-the-wire win in the 1600m relay at Friday's DFAL Championship finals. After solid legs from Juliet Arnswald (17), Sarah Cella (16) and Julie Hyatt (17), Lauren Williams took the baton a few strides ahead of Acalanes' anchor runner.
Williams held on to the lead through the 300m mark. At that point, the Acalanes runner swung wide and inched ahead. With 50 meters remaining, it appeared the Dons would claim the win. Williams, however, would not be denied. The short sprint specialist found one last gear and regained the advantage as they cross the line. The 4:04.93 finishing time is 5th best all-time in the Campolindo record book and propels the squad into the NCS Tri-Valley championships as one of the fastest qualifiers.
Also moving up the record board was Jonathan Hughes (16), who first claimed victory in the 400m with a personal best of 49.49. That mark places Hughes 3rd on the all-time list, less than a second off the school record.
Hughes returned to the track in the 200m, where he flew to a runner-up finish. Though he was denied a 2nd victory, his wind-aided time of 21.97 is now the best ever by a Campolindo athlete, surpassing the 22.31 mark set by John Haley in 1969.
Other championship highlights included a dominating performance in the 3200m race, which saw 6 Cougar harriers eclipse the 10 minute barrier. Jonathan Semenza (16), Jared Yabu (17), Ray Diaz (17) and Nathaniel Sauerberg (16) finished an astonishing 3-4-5-6 to rack up 13 points for their team.
Niki Moore (17) won his first league title in the 800m with an improvement to 1:54.97. Cella returned to form in her 800m race, winning in a season best 2:15.44.
Hannah Ruane (18) was the top Campolindo finisher in the girls' 3200m race, as she cracked the 11 minute mark to become the 7th fastest 8-lapper in school history.
The varsity boys closed out the day with an improvement to 3:26.73 in the 1600 relay.
