Wednesday’s results …

The Acalanes vs Campolindo meet was like two ships passing each other in the dark.  Each coach has a different philosophy in how to develop a team.  The result was extreme differences in the scoring of the meet.  My philosophy is to focus on the varsity and we try and fill all lanes in all events.  As a result we have a very large contingent of frosh/soph on our varsity team. Campolindo felt that they did not have a very strong varsity team and as a result loaded up their frosh/soph team at the expense of the varsity team.  The result is Acalanes Varsity boys won the meet 99-28 and the girls 101-29.  In the frosh/soph the opposite was the result.  But this also meant our frosh/soph did not compete head to head against their frosh/soph. We will see in the next two years which philosophy results in better results.

We had 74 PR’s in the meet, too many to list in the body of this email.

Some outstanding performances:  Kevin Mlynek coming from 50 yards behind to take the boys 4 x 400 to victory; Nicole Frigone in both the 800 and 1600; Chris Rogers in only his second meet long jumping 20′ 6.25; Sidney Zimmerman jumping 4’6 in high jump (Sidney had been stuck at 4′ 0 for a year), Jonathan Choi jumping 6′ 4 in the high jump; Riley Noon running a very tactical race by running in third for three laps and on the final lap sprinted to the front of the pack and challenged the field to catch him, but Riley continued the pressure and pulled away from the field. Riley ran 4:45.48, his fastest time of the year.

This is the first meet Unified Sports competed as a part Acalanes Track team.  Coaches Cal Stevens and Jazy Radmanovic were extremely happy with the performance of the team.  Unfortunately their times and distances were not listed in the in the result, which will be corrected in future meets, but Cal and Jazy felt the growth of the athletes between this year and last was amazing.
