Girls' DMR Dominates Stanford Field with Nation-Leading Time; Volkmer Splits 4:45

While a steady downpour kept an unusually sparse crowd of onlookers huddled under umbrellas or in the imperfect shelter of oaks along the backstretch, the Campolindo girls' distance medley relay squad toed the line at the Stanford Invitational on Friday afternoon with high expectations.

With a strong field of Northern California powerhouse programs assembled, the Cougars hoped to break the 12-minute barrier in the infrequently contested event for the 1st time in 9 years and only the 2nd time in school history.

Kate Kabenina (24) opened with a 1200m leg that put her squad solidly in contention prior to handing the baton to Claire Andrzejek (26), who managed to avoid a collision in the exchange zone before battling down the backstretch and closing the gap on the leader. The sophomore split 63 seconds for the single-lap effort to pull the team within a step of the lead. Daisy Penney (24) received the baton next and immediately moved to the front. The Cougar's margin over 2nd place grew to nearly 50 meters over the course of her 2 laps.

The final chapter in the race was written by Shea Volkmer (24). The Colorado State bound senior opened with a 68-second lap and continued to extend the lead through the finish. Her solo-effort split time of 4:45.7 is the fastest ever 1600m relay leg by a Campolindo athlete, and propelled the squad to a national-leading mark of 11:57.26, in spite of the wet conditions.

The relay time is also the 2nd-best in school history.

Volkmer returned to the farm on Saturday, streaking away from the open 1600m field to win in 4:47.95 after an awkwardly slow opening 200m where the top contenders refused to take the lead. Following the 76-second 1st lap, Volkmer covered the final 1200 meters in an astonishing 3 minutes and 41 seconds. Her margin of victory over 2nd place was 10 seconds.

Volkmer's performance moves her to 2nd on the all-time school record list.

Andrzejek completed the exciting weekend for the Cougars with another improvement in the 800m, overcoming a few tangles to cross the line in 2:21.15.

Knights Slay Chances for Perfect Season; Worster Adds 3 Inches in Vault Victory

The drizzle during Wednesday's DAL dual meet at Las Lomas was a fitting backdrop as the Cougars' chances for a perfect league season fizzled. Strong performances from the hosts along with unfortunate miscues and missed opportunities by the visitors conspired to hand Campolindo 3 close losses and a tie.

With key athletes missing, the shorthanded Cougars were unable to match a spirited effort by the Knights in all phases of the competition.

One bright spot in the gloom was Sierra Worster (26), who managed to claim wins in the 100m and 200m on the track before cresting over 9-3 to top an abbreviated vault competition. The mark is a 3-inch improvement for the sophomore and moves her to 10th on the all-time list.

Berg, McCasland Rise up Record Board as Cougars Remain Unbeaten in League

Thomas Berg (26) and Jasmine McCasland (27) each earned a pair of sprint victories and a long jump win to help their respective varsity squads dominate a short-handed Clayton Valley team on Wednesday, March 20. While Berg moved up the 200m and long jump school record list, McCasland did the same in the 100m and 200m.

4x800 Relay Sets Dublin Fiesta Record; Girls Double back to Dominate 3200m

The Campolindo distance runners traveled to Dublin High School on Friday, March 15, hoping to capitalize on the momentum generated just 2 days earlier when they posted jaw-dropping marks in their dual meet against Northgate. The Cougars put their "A" team on the girls' 4x800 relay starting line sporting new uniforms to face the rest of the best in California.

How much the new attire contributed to their success is debateable. What's clear is that the girls' distance squad is on fire. Anchored by another sensational effort from Shea Volkmer (24), who split 2:14.7 to clinch the relay victory, the senior quartet that includes Daisy Penney (24), Kate Kabenina (24), and Rachel Moen (24) crushed the previous meet standard by nearly 20 seconds. Their 9:31.93 winning time is also now 3rd on the school record list.
