And that’s a wrap.
When Monrovia seniorÂ Cravon GillespieÂ crossed the line, second!, at the California State Championships, the 2014 season ended for the athletes of the San Gabriel Valley. Â And it was an extraordinary year.
Cravon ran a wind aided 10.45, after his wind legal 10.54 in the prelims, and he now ranks 10th All-Time among San Gabriel Valley performers. Â Earlier, he combined withÂ Aubrey Mosley, Octavious SpencerÂ andÂ Seth RainesÂ to finish third the 4×100 relay in 41.45 – a MonroviaÂ school record.
Tierra AdamsÂ (Muir) finished her HS career with a 7th place/43-09 effort in the shot – her best in recent weeks. Â She ends up 2nd AT SGV with her 48-10.25 throw at the Pacific League Finals.
