MVL: Arroyo Boys Are Champs, Rosemead Takes the Girls

Here is an (admittedly) Arroyo-centric report of the deciding Mission Valley League meet from Arroyo coach Bryon Hake.  We hope to be able to bring more of this kind of coverage next year…

Boys Varsity:
1. Arroyo (6-0)
2. Gabrielino (5-1)
3. Rosemead (4-2)
Arroyo Boys defeated Rosemead today on the strength of 3 athletes:
Kevin Chu (12), who won the Pole Vault, 110 HH, Triple Jump, and High Jump
Ting Chiu (12), who won the 100m, 200m, Long Jump (23 feet! probably wind aided), and anchored the 4×100 to a come-from behind victory.
Jesse Ramirez (11), who won the 1600m and 800m (with a new PR of 2:00)
A sweep of the 3200m put the meet away.
Girls Varsity:
1. Rosemead (6-0)
2. Arroyo (5-1)
3. Gabrielino (4-2)
Rosemead’s girls beat Arroyo today. The meet was close through the first few events, with the 4 x 100m being ruled a tie even with auto-timing!  Arroyo went 1-2 in the 1600m, but Rosemead answered with a 1-2 finish in the 100 HH. Tied after 3 events. Arroyo finished the meet with a 1-3 sweep of the 200m, a 1-3 sweep of the 3200m, and a victory in the 4x400m (4:14.44. School record is 4:13.5), but ultimately came up short. Rosemead swept the Pole Vault; won the 400m, 100m, and 800m; and went 1-2 in both the 300 IH and Long Jump (edging Arroyo’s 3rd place jumper by 1/2 inch) and surpassed 68 points.
A good dual meet can be really exciting! Congrats to the Knights and Panthers!
