Friday’s CIF Masters Meet at Cerritos College was exciting, heartbreaking, and much more as locals competed for the honor of participating in next week’s state finals in Clovis, California.
Monrovia’s Cravon Gillespie qualified twice. First in the 100 meters and then as part of the Wildcats 4X100 relay team. Members of that unit include: Aubrey Mosley, Octavius Spencer, and Seth Raines.
Sydney Mosley qualified by taking fifth in the 100 hurdles or Monrovia.
On the Arcadia side runners Roni Yamane (girls) and Phillip Rocha (boys) both advanced to state in the 1,600 meters.
Yamane used a late kick to climb into the sixth spot, while Rocha finished ninth but qualified when his time of 4:13.93 came in 0.31 under the cut.
On the heartbreak side the Arcadia girls 4×400 team (Campbell Dopke, Rachel Wiggins, Sarah Troescher and Kyra White) missed going to state by just 0.23 seconds.
