What a great day.
This was easily the strongest San Gabriel Valley Championships yet. The gathered athletes set a total of 29 meet records in the four divisions, as Arcadia swept to big wins in both varsity divisions and the Frosh/Soph boys while the Claremont nosed out West Covina for the F/S girls title.

(Note, there was a timing problem on several boys 800 heats that we’re working to address)
The field for 2009 San Gabriel Valley Track and Field Championships is set, with a record 33 teams taking part.
We have our strongest field so far, with entries superior to the meet record in 18 of the 32 varsity events. The scheduled competitors include state and national leaders like distance runners Amar Moussa, Catrina McAlister, and Renaud Poizat of Arcadia, sibling jumpers Sheldon and Kylie Price of Bishop Amat, triple jumper Eric Rogers (Charter Oak) and Mt.Sac Relays 800 champ Christopher Ramsey (Glendora).
Arcadia is looking to defend their boys and girls championships from 2008. Only four individual champs from ‘08 return to seek another gold medal: Natalie Deuby/Temple City in the 400, Brittney Munoz/Rosemead – Girl Distance Runner of the Meet – in the 1600 and 3200, Chloe Yuan/Arcadia in the Pole Vault, and Eric Rogers/Charter Oak in the Triple Jump.
West Covina HS has an excellent facility and we’ll have great concessions to go along with the great competition.
