Frosh Soph Girls Wreck League; Doane Rides Windy Conditions to School Record
The frosh soph girls opened the day with a surprise victory in the 400 relay at Saturday's Diablo Athletic League Championship Finals hosted at Campolindo High School. 5 hours later they had amassed 177 points, outdistancing their nearest rival by 72 to earn a 9th consecutive league crown.
30 of those points were scooped up single-handedly by distance ace Ellie Guthrie (20). The sophomore beat the rest of the 1600m field convincingly before upsetting the pre-race favorites in the 800m for win number 2. In her final event, Guthrie drafted behind the Matador's Colette Kimura for most of the race, then charged away on the final lap to take the tape.
The youngsters' sprint squad also rose to the occasion with a 400m win from Alree Farrell (21) and runner-up finishes from Terryal Bell (21) in the 100m and 200m. Bell also contributed big points in the field, soaring over 15 feet to top the charts in long jump.
Arine Kim (20) executed her own aerial acrobatics to rise above her opponents in the pole vault. The versatile sophomore also picked up vital places in both throwing events after anchoring the winning 400 relay.
The total team effort also included scoring from Anastazia Lopez (21) in both hurdle races.
In the frosh soph boys' competition, Alex Metz (20) and Pablo Nguyen (20) picked up their own championship hardware. Metz streaked to wins in the 100m and 200m sprints while Nguyen defended his 2017 800m title.
Finlay Penney (21) continued his improvement in the long sprint, dropping his 400m time under 53 seconds to finish 2nd.
Varsity competitors earning advancement to the NCS Tri-Valley Championships included Andrew Kimball (18), who landed top-6 finishes in both throwing events, including a shot put personal best over 42 feet.
In the distance races, Ethan Sauerberg (18) shaved 3 more seconds from his 1600m time while Dylan Gunn (21) and Edward Buckley (19) claimed 4th and 5th place in the 3200m. Gunn's time of 9:53.20 was a 6-second improvement.
The varsity girls' competition was highlighted by a breakthrough race from Fiona Quimby (18) in the 100 hurdles. The senior cracked the 18-second barrier for the 1st time. Later in the day, Quimby (18) improved her 300 hurdle time. In all, the 3-year veteran qualified for NCS in 4 events!
The other 4-event qualifier was no surprise. Maddy Doane (19), who, like Quimby, provided legs on both advancing relay squads, also earned NCS berths in the 200m and 400m events. The half-lap sprint was particularly exciting as Doane surged through the homestretch to overtake top seeded Sophia Pardo of Las Lomas to take the victory and set a new school record.
Also topping the podium was Ashley Thoms (18), who added a quarter of an inch to her triple jump PR for the win.
