Still getting caught up after the rush of SGV meet week, we want to make sure to take note of the top performances leading up to the week.
The Mt.SAC Relays saw a rash of fast sprint performances, but almost all of them wereÂ considerably wind-aided. Â Damien’s Zach Shinnick and Thaddeus Smith and Diamond Ranch junior Daniel StokesÂ – the SGV’s top 2015 dashers all ran very well.
Stokes won the Seeded heats of the 100 & 200, defeating Smith in the 100, while Shinnick was 5th in the Invite 100 and Thaddeus was 2nd in the Invite 200.
The night before, SGV 800 & 1600 leaderÂ Dillon BeckumÂ (So, Bonita) showed his range by finishing 4th in the Invite 3200 in 9:16.98 – a probable school record.
The only All-Time performance that came outside the SGV Champs covered above was Zach Shinnick’s 47.85 in the Los Osos dual meet. This was a new best for Zach, but he remains #17 All-Time SGV.
Here is the updated 2015 All-San Gabriel Valley List list for the boys. 120Â athletes and relays have exceeded in theÂ the standard for the 16 events, an average of 7.5Â per event. Â We still don’t have a thrower who has made the standard, but after the amazing 1600 at the SGV, 16 boys have earned All-SGV honors in that event.
