Girls have only been competing in high school track since the late 70’s, so their SGV All-Time lists are not as deep as the boys. Â But the top of the lists are very strong, withÂ many NCAA finalists and a number of Olympians.
At Saturday’s Arcadia Invite, Sydney Mosley (Monrovia, Sr) put herself into that company. Â Her 13.85 in the 100m Hurdles ranks her #4 All-Time SGV, just behind Olympians Kori CarterÂ (Claremont)& Janeen Vickers (Pomona). Â Her strong performance in what is a historically strong event for the SGV makes her our Athlete of the Week.
Sydney was rivaled for Top Honors by San Dimas senior Hannah Nance‘s breakthrough 5-07 high jump at Arcadia. Â She now ranks =9th All-Time SGV.
In other All-Time Performances from Arcadia, Monrovia junior Jordyn Tucker is now #41 & #48 after her 12.15/25.11100/200m double. Â Trinity Ruelas (San Dimas, So) continued her big season with a 10:47.27 3200m Friday night. Â That makes her #16 A-T SGV and it’s a school record.
Arcadia‘s 4×400 moved up to #15= All-Time with a 3:50.41 and their “B” team missed the Top 50 by .34 with a 3:59.45 effort in the day meet!
Elsewhere, California sophÂ Lauren AndersonÂ set a school record and moved to #41 All-Time with her 120-09 discus in a dual meet v. La Serna, while her senior teammate Stephanie Cortez set a 5:08.49 school record at the Irvine Distance Carnival.
Stephanie also clinched All-San Gabriel Valley honors, one of twelve athletes and four athletes to reach that status or improve on their qualifying marks this week.
