Several Mid Valley News coverage area athletes competed in the CIF Southern Section Track & Field finals at Cerritos College in Norwalk on Saturday. While one part of their goal was to win a CIF title another part was to qualify for the CIF-SS Masters Meet, which is also held at Cerritos College.
The Monrovia Girls Division 4 4X100 team, an area force the last few years, took the title with a foursome of Elise McCarthy, Madison Herrera, Jordyn Tucker, and Sydney Mosley.
Bosco Tech senior Ruben Dominguez won Division 4 1,600-meter title in what many are considering an upset.
The Division 1 top spot in the 1,600-meters was won by Arcadia’s Estevan De La Rosa. How close are things in this event? De La Rosa’s time was 4:11.00, finishing fourth was Apache teammate Phillip Rocha with a Masters qualifying time of 4:11.56
Arcadia’s girls 4X400 relay team of Campbell Dopke, Rachel Wiggins, Sarah Troescher and Kyra White finished third in 3:51.28 to qualify eighth.
Advancing to next week as well were Arcadia’s Roni Yamane in the 1,600, Monrovia’s Cravon Gillespie in the 100, and Baldwin Park’s Susie Garza in the 800.
The CIF-SS Masters Meet is this Saturday at Cerritos College.
