REY-TINGS GOLD - RASH WINS CIF TITLE, FRANK FINISHES ALL CIF

One of the major “givens” of high school Track and Field is that nothing is for certain. Nothing. Where one places; how you and your opponent compete on a given day; past accomplishments; who the favorite might be, what everyone may think is a lock..or not.. means very little when the time comes to toe the mark and see what it is you have that day. At the 2018 CIF Finals held Saturday at El Camino College in Torrance, it was just such a day for the two lone King High qualifiers, Sarah Ann Frank and Reyte Rash. The “givens”went out the window and for their efforts, their focus and their willingness to compete, these two King kids “got” a lot and forged a historic day for themselves and King Track and Field.

Sarah Ann, disappointed after not qualifying in the 300 hurdles final a week ago at CIF Prelims, mustered her second best effort ever in her 4 year career in the 100 hurdles and nabbed 6th place in 14.80. She would record an All-CIF honor in the process and beat a number of girls who had recorded faster times during the season than she had. Her mark would have her finish 11th in the entire CIF(SS) which is made up of some 550 schools. She won’t be moving onto the Master’s Meet for state qualifying but what a way to end her career.

“We had a good feeling about what Sarah could do today, ” said Coach John Corona, ” but you never know what’s going to happen. I was anxious for her because she was kinda on the bubble, but she left no doubt. She did not blink in the face of the strongest hurdle competition in the state. It was as strong and as complete a race as she’s ever had.”

And then he smiled, ” I don’t have many words for what Reyte did today. The word “Incredible” comes to mind.”

Junior Reyte Rash was the final qualifier in the 110 hurdles out of Prelims. Not much was expected. ” Honestly, we were hoping for a PR,” said Corona.

The Wolves got more than that. After one athlete false started out and then overcoming a slow start, Rash powered over the final 5 hurdles to nab third place in a new PR of 14.75. From ninth to third, just like that! His mark placed him 6th overall out of all the CIF Divisions and that means a trip to the Master’s Meet in an event that was supposed to be an afterthought. In the 300 Hurdles, Reyte was sort of at the opposite end of things. He had the best time coming in from the preliminary rounds BUT he certainly wasn’t the favorite. It was an extremely strong field featuring Caleb Lutalo-Roberson of Upland and Collin Hurd of Trabuco Hills, both at the top of the state list for this event and both of whom had faster times during the season.

Once again, Reyte got out slow…. so slow, in fact, that his team mate Sarah Ann blurted out excitedly “What’s he doing??” Reyte made up for that start into the top of the turn and then as he hit the final 100 meters, sitting around fourth, he hit overdrive and made his move. As the competitors hit the second to last hurdle, he took a slight lead and it was at that point, the small King crowd rose up knowing he had a chance to win. Rash crossed the line in a new PR and new school record of 37.65. Lutalo-Roberson finished second in 37.94.With that performance, Reyte Rash become a CIF Champion. It is the third straight year a King track athlete has been so honored (Lauren Puerifoy in 2017 and Tyler Janes in 2016). His mark was third best on the day and Rash is headed for this week’s Master’s Meet in two events. “We knew he would probably place and get a shot at going to Master’s in the 300’s” said the long time head coach of the Wolves. “But CIF D-1 Champion? Nobody, and I mean, nobody, saw this coming. What a great surprise and what a tribute to him and his event coaches, Ken Bracy, Tayler Fleming and Keith Janes“.

Two athletes is the least amount of CIF Final participants that King has had in awhile but the Wolves got bang for their buck! Three CIF medals; 3 All-CIF honors; an individual CIF Championship and behind Reyte’s efforts, the King boys team finished 13th in CIF D-1. “It just shows the beauty of competition,” smiled Corona. “Nothing is guaranteed and the odds don’t much matter. You just need to go out and compete as hard as you can and let the chips fall where they may. Thankfully, for the efforts of Sarah and Reyte, they fell our way today.”
