With most teams on Spring Break, last week was a slow one for the track programs of the San Gabriel Valley.  This gave us only one new event leader.  Flintridge Prep junior Gareth Weiss, who took over the Pole Vault lead from his twin brother Barrett with a PR 14’6″ jump at the Prep League Meet #3 last Wednesday.  Among the girls, Veronica Yamane (Arcadia, SR) improved her lead in 1600m with a fine 5:05.34 in a Tri-Meet with Pasadena & Burbank.

At the big Trabuco Hills Invite, Walnut soph Kayla Richardson was 2nd in the 100m, and her junior teammate Millan Trujillo was 3rd in the Invite 3200m with a PR 9:24.16.  In San Diego at the Arnie Robinson Invite, Mountain View senior Sandra Marquez took two firsts (100m & 400m) and a 2nd (200m) and now has a SGV Top 10 Mark in all three events.

And in the team rankings, from this week forward, we’ll rank the Boys and Girls teams separately.

On the girls side, Arcadia maintains a slim margin over Walnut – both continue to be complete teams, with athletes ranked in, respectively, 12 and 11 of the 16 events we contest.  Walnut and Damien are tied at the top of the Boys rankings, with Spartans leading with ranked athletes in 10 events.

This week, the focus moves to the national Arcadia Invitational (Update: SGVTrib Group coverage here) and to a full slate of dual meets.  At Arcadia, three girls and seven boys have qualified for the prestigious night meet, along with four relays.
