Walnut’s Chloe and Emma Arriaga had strong youth track careers, and they started their high school careers with bang at the Fastback Shootout. At Saturday’s San Gabriel Valley One on One Challenge they (and everyone else) had their first look at the full, 2.93 mile Championship Course at Mt.SAC.
Wasting no time, Chloe was the overall winner in 17:45, a time that places her
seventh ninth All-Time among San Gabriel Valley athletes on the course. Emma was third overall, and her 18:26 performance ranks #32 #47 All-Time SGV. (This is according to our current AT list, which is evolving as more records become available. Ed: it evolved more on Tuesday).
On the boys side, Sierra Vista senior Cesar Bermudez was the SGV’s best. He was the only local boy to break 16:00, finishing 5th overall in 15:52. Arroyo (83:12), pace by Jesse Ramirez at 16:02 just edged out the Daniel Salazar (16:01) led Covina (83:18) as the top area team. The Knights were fifth overall, while Covina were sixth and the winners of Division 2.
Covina, led by senior Demi Marine – 18:58, were the top SGV girls team, winning Div. 2 at 95:56 and placing second overall.
