Awards EXPANDED IN 2017!: New custom made 3D medals for the top performances of the day in each event including relays will be awarded. Places 2 through 6 in the individual events and 2 through 6 in the relays will get the meet’s traditional custom-made medals. This year we are adding something new in that we will be giving medals to heat/flight winners in the slower heats or field event flights with the lower marks. We still have to figure out how we will do this in field events that have open pits but we will and will let you know probably at the coaches’ breakfast. There will be trophies for top three teams in each division and a sweepstakes trophy for the team with the highest combined boys and girls score.
Team Scoring: Team scoring for this meet has traditionally been 10-8-6-4-2-1. We are moving to a 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 format. In this way, more kids have a chance to contribute to the team scoring. We still have to massage this idea as well in terms of the open pit field events, etc. but again, we will have a solid answer for you the morning of the meet.
New Event, New Name: In honor of our school’s namesake, we are switching the 1600’s to the mile and the fastest heats of the boys and girls mile will now be known as the “I have a Dream” Mile

RANCHO VERDE, KING SPLIT TOP BILLING AT 11th ANNUAL FROSH SOPH CLASSIC
Rancho's boys sprint crew was just outstanding. Rasam House, Tyler Kennedy and Carson Walder went 1,3, 5 in the 100 and House doubled back to win the 200. In the 4x100 relay, they won that event as well over Heritage and King squads. Rancho Verde's 4x400 relay group came within a second of taking the meet record with a very impressive 3:32.69 victory. Their talented 400 meter runner, Isaiah Robertson did set the meet record in the 400 running 50.81. Cameron Samuel won the 300 hurdles in 40.81, with his teammate Henry Banks coming in third.
A second meet record was set by Rancho Verde's Bryan Thompson who skied in the long jump, landing at 21-04, 8 inches past the old mark set back in 2010! Alijah Holguin was fifth in that event to score as well.
King's boys finished second in the race, but with the dominance of Rancho Verde, the scores were not close. Solid performances were turned in for the Wolves in a number of events. Carson Walder finished fourth in the 100 meters, going 11.91. Dillon Lay and Josh Fisher ran really well in the 110 high hurdles, finishing in 2nd and 3rd respectively, and they came back to match that in the 300's, finishing 2nd and 4h. Blake Gelinas couldn't match the record-setting mark in the 400, but did run 53 seconds to take second place. Jeremy Young scored a point in that event coming in 6th place. Austin Dai ran one of his grittiest performances ever in the 3200, finishing 4th in 10:34. Noah Gutierrez finished fourth in the high jump while Andrew Wilde won the pole vault at 11 feet.
Where the boys of Rancho Verde ran away with it, the girls of King returned the favor and ran away from Rancho Verde, finishing with 156.5 points, to Rancho's 89. The Lady Wolves seemed to have mastery over almost every event. Rebekah Pendleton won the 3200 in a hard-fought battle, while Allison Janes and Kathryn Hammar went 1-2 in the 1600 meters. Sarah Anne Frank did really well in the hurdle races, winning the 100's and placing third in the 300's. Sydney Reid dashed her way to second in the 100 meter dash and first in the 200. She was followed in the point scoring by Larisa Cesena and Charizma Guzman, both of whom scored in the 200 meter final. The Wolves 4x100 team was victorious. Freshman Ashley Chruszcz was second in the 400 meters.
In the 800 meters, Tayelee Holtrop and Hammar finished 4th and 5th with solid performances, but they were outshined by the freshman phenom from Riverside Poly, Kalea Ybarra who went wire-to-wire unchallenged and still managed to set the meet record at 2:16.98. King's Areena Zavala won the shot put with a heave over 30' while Keiana Turner scored in 4th place. Turner would double back to win the discus, however, with a toss out over 88'.
So it was a day for sharing the top 2 spots of the day, as Rancho Verde and King went 1-2 and 2-1 in the team scores.
