The track team performed well at the Mustang Round-up on Saturday, Feb. 29. The invitational, just days after Alhambra, included difficult competition from much larger schools. Despite this, the Tigers produced a number of personal records and individually placed within the top 10 in nearly every event.
Juniors Terrel Mansano and Ferrel Mansano placed third and fourth, respectively, in the 200m with times of 22.72 and 22.73. T. Mansano also earned fourth in the 400m, while senior Gianna Beasley came in at third place in the women’s event.
Sophomore Sydney Morrow reached two personal records, placing fifth in the 800m and second in the 1600m. Senior Sam Clark came in sixth in the men’s 1600m and also earned second in the 3200m. Junior Lindsay Michels also achieved a personal record in the 3200m, placing eighth with a time of 11:53.09.
Senior TH Wei placed first in the long jump at 21’4.75”, and earned second in the triple jump. Senior Kevin Kang came in third in the same event, with a personal record of 43’8.50”.
“Despite being tired from Thursday’s meet against Alhambra, we had a solid performance today on all levels,” Clark said. “Overall, this race bodes well for the rest of the season, since it shows we can perform well even at two back-to-back meets.”
The team will compete at the Redondo Nike Invitational on Friday, Mar. 13.
