SGV Rankings: Walnut Back on Top, Sydney Mosley is 5th AT!

We have a new boys team leader, three new event leaders and one change in the All-Time list as we finish the Big Invite portion of the track season.

DSC_0290WEB-965x1024The main action was at the massive Mt.SAC Relays – we are really fortunate to have two of the top high school tracks in the country right here in the SGV!  The top performance came from Monrovia junior Sydney Mosey - her 13.88 in the 100m Hurdles placed her third in the Invite race, and she moved from 9th to 5th on the SGV All Time Performers List.  Her teammate, senior Cravon Gillespie was 2nd in the Invite 100m with a wind-aided 10.69.  In other top finishes at Mt.SAC, SGV record holder Claire Kieffer-Wright (Sr, South Pasadena) as 2nd/5’10″ in the high jump, the Monrovia girls were 3rd/47.42 in the 4×100 Relay, improving their SGV seasonal leading mark, and Eric Knowles (Sr, St. Francis) was 4th in the Invite Triple Jump with a PR and SGV leading 45’1-1/4″

We gained three new SGV seasonal leaders from Mt.SAC - Barrett Weiss (Jr, Flintridge Prep) regained the Pole Vault lead from his brother Gareth with a big PR 15’0″ (4th Seeded), and Michael Dondalski (Sr, Pasadena) continued his massive improvement with a 1:54.35 (2nd Seeded) finish in the 800m.  in the Girls 800, where Susie Garza (Sr, Baldwin Park) took over the SGV seasonal lead with a PR 2:16.13 (3rd Seeded).  SGV 400m leader Ross Niederhaus (Jr, St. Francis) PR’d with a 48.54 (3rd Seeded), and girls 4×400 Relay leaders Arcadia improved to 3:54.85 (6th Invite)

The Cougar Classic, after being rained out on the opening weekend, was contested last weekend with an understandably diminished field.  SGV athletes won most of the events, with notable performances coming from Thomas Medina (Sr, Santa Fe) 49.81/400m, Morgan Love (Jr, Charter Oak) 25.75/200m & 57.24/400m, and the Covina boys 4×400 – 3:27.51.

SGV athletes also competed at two small school meets, the Ocean View Invitational and the Russell Cup.

The Arcadia girls are holding steady at the top of the girls SGV Team Rankings.  These rankings are based on the number of places in the top ten of the 2014 San Gabriel Valley Performance List.  Following an excellent week Walnut moved back to the top of the boys rankings, with Flintridge Prep moving into the first ten for the first time.
