Taylor Hill, running the 1600M in the rain.

This past Saturday the track and field team competed in Dan Gabor Invitational at Amador High School. The meet offered just six running events and four field events, but they had 87 heats of 400’s (339 athletes), 109 heats of 100’s (365 athletes), 28 heats of 1600, 27 heats of 800’s, and those just are the running events we competed in.

These events are one big time trial. What we as a staff are looking for, is how is our progress to date compares to last year, and can we compete.  The staff is happy with the results … for the most part our times are comparative to last year’s times for returning athletes, and our new athletes showed that they are willing to compete in races.

We had several athletes compete and finish in the top three in their heat. We had four girls in the top twenty in the 400, we set a meet record in the long jump, and we had 46 season or personal records set at this meet. See full results

Dear Boosters, Parents and AHS Staff,

Track and Field is back for another season.  Again the coaches and I, Coach Crain, would like to honor the performances of our student athletes.  Unlike most other team sports we do not have a bench and athletes do not have to earn playing time.  In track all athletes compete in meets regardless of ability, and all athletes regardless of ability improve throughout the year.  This is the primary goal of every athlete on the team, and I feel it is important that these students are recognized for their efforts.

A “PR” stands for personal record. That is when an athlete has a better performance than any other they have had is a past.  We track their performances throughout their career on the track team at Acalanes.

Individual PR’s for this past weekend at the Skyline Invitational are:

Johnny Choi                 Triple Jump 38’11 with a short approach
Andrew Federas           1600  6:18.26
Kevin  Mlynek               Ran his first two hurdle races with a 20.00 in the 110 and 45.79 in the 300 hurdles
Keaziah Smith              20″ 8.25 in long jump
Rayce Walton               2:12.43 in 800
Muppy Gragg               16.65 in 100 hurdles, Muppy also finished 2nd in HJ
Charlie Keohane           29.00 in 200
Mila Mathias                 18.17 100 hurdles, 53.29 300 hurdles (Mila took a day off from rehersals for the Mystery of Edwin Drood to run this meet)
Maren Quinella             19.27 100 Hurdles
Mikaela Troung             63.38
Karen Rosenburg          89′ 1 in discus
Boys 4 x 400                 3:43.41 (Irvin Chao, Harrison Seymore, Rayce Walton, Kevin Mylnek) 1st place
Boys 4 x 100                 44.42, (Jesse Stralla, Keaziah Smith, Callen OBrien, Anand Pagel) 2nd place

We have serveral new comers to the team who did well and since this is their first time or distance these marks are also considered PR’s.

Chris Armanino             12.15  100
Pierce Florine                8’6 pole vault
Ethan Johnston             65.42 in 400
David Marron                53.67  400, 4’8 in HJ
Nicole Frigon                 64,34 in 400, 12:19.13 in 3200 and  2nd place
