Laura Garfein, Molly Cronk and Olivia Pellegrini were Coach Fraser’s players of the game.
Yesterday we competed at Clayton Valley (whose claim to fame is the worst football field in America; it is black). The Varsity Girls won the meet 80 to 54 (the spread would have been even greater had Devin Grobeck and Imani Boggan competed – both were out due to illness). The Varsity Girls are are the league division champions. To become League Champions the girls must win the league championship meet May 6th and 13th at Campo. Their main competitor will be Miramonte.
The Varsity Boys lost to Clayton Valley 71 to 64. That is a four point differential – one second place instead a third place or one first instead of a second, and we would have won. It was that close. The boys finished second in the division with a 3-1 record, and their competition at the league championships will again be Clayton Valley.
Both the girls and boys competed well. We had 71 PR’s or season best by 47 individual athletes. The two top performances of the meet were by Muppy Gragg and Ryan Nall. Muppy improved on the third best all-time 400M with 57.91, running into a strong headwind and winning by 40 yards as she and Imani Boggan are on a quest to become the all-time best in that event. Ryan stepped up big time and outperformed Clayton’s Valley’s league leading shot putter with a PR of 46 feet.

Yesterday was a big rivalry meet against Campolindo, held here at Acalanes. Yesterday morning I received word that one of our 4×100 runners was sick, which meant that I had to make a number changes in events that athletes were scheduled to run on the varsity girls. Fortunately, we have several girls that are multi-talented and making the change was easier.
The Varsity Girls won by a score of 94-42 and the Varsity Boys won by the score of 91-45. The Frosh Soph teams both lost, but I don’t put much weight on their scores, because most of the time our F/S teams are at a disadvantage because we move many of them up to Varsity. So with F/S we look at them individually, as opposed to a team.
The following Frosh/Soph athletes competed yesterday, and when you look at the PR’s from the meet you will see what I mean:
Emily Sverak finished 3rd in 400 and 300H and lead off the 4 x 400, Eliza Parry finished 3rd in 200 and 3rd in LJ, Scarlette McCullough finished 2nd in PV and second in LJ and 3rd in 100 , Anna Weier was first in shot and 3rd in discus, Karen Rosenburg, Mila Mathias finished 3rd in HJ and 2nd in the 200, Mikaela Truong ran the third leg of the 4 x 400.
Keaziah Smith long jumped, Jack Muren ran 100 and 200, Jake Delaney 3rd in 100 and ran 200 and 4 x 100, Riley Noon competed in 1600 and 800 where he finished 3rd, Johnny Choi was third in LJ and first in HJ, Lorenzo Olivar ran the 100 and long/triple jumps, Kevin Mlynek high jumped and ran on the 4 x 400.
This meet we had forty two PR’s or Season Bests:
100 Callen O’Brian 12.44, Anand Patel 12.53 , Krishna Prabaharan 14.21, Scarlette McCullough 13.45
200 Jack Muren 26.80, Callen O’Brian 26.19, Mila Mathias 28.70 and Eliza Parry 28.97

This past Thursday-Friday we competed in the Arcadia Invitational at Arcadia High School, Arcadia, Ca. This is one of the most outstanding high school track and field meets in the country. It included 1100 athletes and 665 schools from all over the United States and beyond. To qualify, you have to submit this year’s marks and they were verified before entries were accepted. This is one of the hardest meets to qualify for. They actually run four separate meets. Thursday and Friday was a decathlon and heptathlon competition, Friday were relays only in the running events, three heats of each, and some field events. Saturday morning was the Open Section and on Saturday evening there was the Invitational Section (This is the best of the best. Sydney McLaughlin, who competed in the last Olympics as a 16 year old, competed in this Invitational Section in the 300H.)
Muppy Gragg competed in the heptathlon which is 7 events over two days. She finished 10th out of 22 athletes (including athletes from New Zealand, Canada, Georgia, Colorado, Washington) and was one of the only juniors in the event. She had four PR’s and finished in the top four in three of the seven events. Muppy’s Marks in order of competition: 100H, 16.83 (PR); HJ 4′ 11; Shot, 25′; 200, 26:00 (4th and PR); LJ, 17′ 10 (4th PR); Javelin, 65″; 800, 2:21.22 (2nd and PR).

Windy Margerum competed in the Open Section in the 100H and LJ. In the hurdles there were 42 athletes and Windy finished second overall in the Open Meet, with a time of 14.65 just off her personal best of 14.54, but also Windy finished with the 13th fastest time at the meet, including the Invitational Section. In the LJ Windy finished 3rd with a 18′ 4.5″ in the Open Section, one inch off her best, and she also had the 8th best jump of the meet including the Invitational Section. This makes Windy one of the top athletes in her events in the state.
In the girls 800 Imani Boggan finished 24th out of 42 with a time of 2:18.25, which keeps Imani on pace of improving on her season ending time of 2016. What was impressive about Imani’s race is in the final stretch she passed several runners in front of her, which demonstrates her strength, and will be needed at the end of the season.

We also had two other events scheduled in the Open Section, Muppy in the 300H and the girls 4 x 400. Muppy ran the 300 Hurdles, but was not herself. After the race she had a hard time recovering and difficulty hydrating. It was decided that it was not in Muppy’s or the team’s best interest to run the 4 x 400. Even though this is Arcadia, it is still one race in the middle of the season, and we did not want to jeopardize our chances at a league championship and a strong post season. Unfortunately, Annie Klopstock and Mikaela Truong who qualified and traveled to Arcadia, did not get the opportunity to run in the 4 x 400.
overwhelmed Clayton Valley Charter HS 19-3. The jv team performed in like fashion 17-7.
surrendered 3 early goals before taking control of the game with an 11-4 victory over Clayton Valley Charter HS to remain undefeated in the DAL at 9-0 and 12-1 overall. The jv team cruised to an 11-2 victory.
defeated Concord HS 25=23, 25-6 and 25-20 to remain undefeated in the DAL at 3-0 and raise their overall record to 17-3. The jv team also won 25-12 and 25-14 to also remain undefeated in the DAL at 3-0 and 5-2 overall.
dropped two close games to Serra HS and St. Mary’s HS from Stockton in the prestigious Scott Boras Classic. The jv team defeated Las Lomas HS 5-1.
