Track and field maintains winning streak in league opener against Monrovia

Track picked up right where they left off last year, sweeping Monrovia across all four divisions in their first league meet on Wednesday, March 28. Girls’ and boys’ varsity won by a large margin, with scores of 76-51 and 85-42, respectively.

Both teams beat the Wildcats in the 4×400-meter relay, but the girls’ team was disqualified from the 4×100-meter race. Fortunately, a strong first leg from sophomore Tianhao Wei helped the boys’ squad win the 4×100-meter relay.

Senior Oliver Chang’s 4:37 1600-meter run earned first place, with sophomore Sam Clark also racking up points with a top-three finish. In addition, Clark won the 3200-meter race with a time of 10:48. Sophomore Gianna Beasley easily emerged victorious in the girls’ 800-meter race and was followed by sophomore Emily Newhall, who placed second. Highlighting the boys’ sprints was senior Jack Renken’s 23.22 second 200-meter performance.

The Tigers will hope to keep their league-meet winning streak alive against San Marino on April 11, after spring break.
