2-Minute Improvement Elevates Dolge to JV Win on Newhall Park 2.0-Mile Course

In the final race of Saturday's De La Salle-Nike Invitational at Newhall Park, veteran Hardy Dolge (22) lowered his 2-mile course record by 2 minutes and 5 seconds to claim the junior varsity boys' individual title.

While temperatures were warmest at the end of the meet, the junior varsity boys division featured the most substantial PRs of the day. Also dropping over 2 minutes from his previous best, Justin Wang (22) crossed the finish in 14:29.

As promised, the mostly flat terrain resulted in a string of new personal records for the 2-mile distance. Sophomores Santiago Jordan (24), Cale Anderson (24), and Ryan Lee (24) led the way for the boys while freshmen Marcella Monopoli (25) and Julia Waide (25), along with sophomore Cheryl Potter (24), topped the girls' list.

The varsity 3-mile competition featured a career best from Blake Webster (23), who broke the tape in 16:29. Caroline McCool (23) set her own 3-mile best by 2 minutes and 14 seconds.

Summer Harriers Enjoy Coastal Fog, Damp Trails en route to Stinson Beach

19 athletes and a handful of parents and coaches traversed the historic Dipsea trail from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach on Saturday. Most of the group managed to navigate their way over the challenging climbs and finished off the effort with a plunge into the frigid Pacific surf before enjoying food and frolic at Stinson Beach.

A select number of runners did miss a turn approximately 5 miles into their journey and ended up hitting the coast farther south than they had hoped. After readjusting their bearings, the misguided crew managed to reunite with their teammates via a mile-long detour on highway 1.

Blue skies made an appearance just as the party wrapped up.
