All-Time SGV Lists – Updated for 2017

For the past several years, we’ve been scouring the internet and haranguing coaches for information to create All-Time Top 50 Performers Lists for San Gabriel Valley Track and Field.

You can view the lists here:

These lists are still rough drafts. We’re pretty confident that we’ve found everything that’s available on the internet, and many coaches have helped with their school records and All-Time lists, but we know that there are many marks that have been lost over time. Please contact us in the comments if you have info on marks that would make the list.

But this is what we have. There are six boys with ten All-Time marks that are currently competing, and twenty-six girls with thirty-nine marks taking part in the 2017 season. With more to come!

A few notes on the list: in events where wind readings were recorded, we’ve only used wind legal marks. We’ve also used the current year’s California Top 100 marks as a standard for inclusion on the list – so there are several girls events where the All-Time list does not reach to 50. We have also tried to include every SGV team’s school records on the list, but this part is admittedly spotty.

In the first Hacienda Cluster meet, the West Covina boys surprised favored Los Altos to win with a strong display of pack running, while the Walnut girls showed they had enough depth to lead at the lead level.

Boys Winner Adolfo Velasquez
Boys Winner Adolfo Velasquez

The Montview League’s second cluster meet was held Wednesday on the tough, hilly 3-mile course at Schabarum Park.

Nothing changed at the top, as Baldwin Park were again the easy winners on the boys side, as were the girls with a bigger margin than the first meet.

Maria Hernandez (Sierra Vista) was the dominating winner of the girls race – her 19:59 putting a full minute on runner-up Leah Martinez (Azusa).  Both runners were better than the first meet, but nothing like the 2:21 improvement from Hannah Eubanks (Gladstone) as she moved from 11th in meet #1 to third with a 21:04 result.

The top two boys switched places from meet #1, as Adolfo Velasquez (Baldwin Park), with a really excellent 15:32 effort, pushed past previous winner Cesar Bermudez (Sierra Vista) at 15:53.
