Jorge Zapien was on a tear last year until a late season injury.  But Friday at the Arcadia Invitational , the California senior made up for lost time with 15-03 jump in the pole vault – and a legit effort at 16-00!  He now ranks #15 All-Time San Gabriel Valley and is our Athlete of the Week on the strength of that effort and this great interview linked here.

Jorge was one of five athletes with All-Time performances at Arcadia.  Arcadia junior Phillip Rocha returned from injury to run a great 8:59.42 3200m and is now #12.  Thaddeus Smith (Damien, Sr) moved up to #31= with a 10.71 100m.

Diamond Ranch junior Daniel Stokes stormed into the Top 50 with a 21.69 200m, a .42 PR that ranks him #45 A-T, while Gary Hawkins (Gabrielino, Sr) is now among the best with 14.41 #44 All-Time effort in the 110m Hurdles.

These athletes were part of 16 individuals and 2 relays that earned All-San Gabriel Valley status or improved their qualifying marks in week 7.  You can view the entire seasonal list here: 15-4.11 All-SGV Boys
