Schnayer Breaks Record; Volkmer Rises to 4th All-Time at Alhambra Practice Meet

Pinkie Schnayer (24) opened her 2024 campaign with 2 impressive personal records at Wednesday's practice meet against the visiting Bulldogs of Alhambra High School. The state championship qualifier launched the shot to an exceptional 45 feet, 7 inch distance on her 2nd attempt, improving the Campolindo school record by over 3 feet. All 4 of her attempts in the competition eclipsed the old record mark.

The senior star followed that impressive performance with a new best in the discus, sending the platter over 124 feet. The distance is now 3rd on the school-record board. Schnayer joins the class of 1998's Rachel Rosemeyer with marks in the top 3 of both throwing events.

Other record-board worthy marks included Shea Volkmer's (24) 2:16.43 clocking in the 800m race. The winning time moves the senior distance runner ahead of Cougar legend Carrie Verdon on the all-time list. She was followed by Kate Kabenina (24), Daisy Penney (24), and Rachel Moen (24), who each set personal records of their own in the event.

Also adding their names to Campolindo track & field history were rookie Jasmine McCasland (27), who landed a mark of 17 feet, 4 inches in the long jump competition, and veteran thrower Aislinn Comerford (25), who put the shot 32 feet, 4 inches.

Boys' highlights from the season-kickoff event included Bryce McLaverty's (24) victories in the shot put and discus. The senior tossed the iron 43 feet, 6 inches after winning the discus with a throw of 119-5.

Malik Li (25) earned the win in the pole vault with a 1st-time clearance of 12 feet. In the sprints, Thomas Berg (25) topped the 200m field with a PR of 23.02 after finishing 2nd in the 400m.

Distance Trio Claims Titles at 2024 Event Testing; McCasland Tops Rookie Girls

3 out of 4 division winners at Saturday's track team event testing came from the endurance training group, including veteran girl's champion Shea Volkmer (24), who streaked to a stadium-record performance in the 1200m race to cap an outstanding all-around effort. The senior standout was joined on the podium by fellow distance runners Daisy Penney (24) and Kate Kabenina (24).

Middle-distance specialist Max Marino (24) earned the veteran boys' crown with top times in both the 300m and 1200m events. Joey Floyd (24), yet another representative from the endurance group, finished 2nd overall in the point total.

Taiyo Chiba (27) helped with the distance runner hat trick by outperforming his rookie counterparts. The freshman finished nearly a minute ahead of rookie runner-up Henry Franklin (26) in the 3-lap finale to clinch his victory.

Only the rookie girls division saw a member of the speed training group climb to the top of the rankings. An excellent 43.2 clocking in the 300m sprint propelled freshman Jasmine McCasland (27) to the overall lead in spite of wet conditions. Her distance-running sister, Kiona McCasland (27) finished 2nd in points.

Girls Repeat as Tri-Valley Champs; Testa, Buckley, Nelson Claim Individual Titles

For the 3rd time this season, the Campolindo boys' 100m school record changed hands as Garrett Nelson (23), who held the record for a matter of minutes with his heat victory at the West Coast Relays on April 1, streaked to the victory at the NCS Tri-Valley Area Championships at Foothill High School on Saturday, May 13.

Conditions were optimal for sprints, with temperatures in the upper 80s and a legal tail wind prevailing down the home stretch for most of the day. Nelson's 10.69 winning mark lowered the previous record set by teammate Josh Myers (23) by 8 hundredths of a second. It was just one of several exceptional performances as the Cougars advanced 25 individual athletes on to the NCS Meet of Champions, to be held at Dublin High School on Friday and Saturday, May 19-20.
