Shelby Smallwood has been on a tear this season getting her first invitational win at the CCS Top 8 meet at Los Gatos High School Friday. She dominated the field at the CCS Top 8 invitational, which features a preview of the best athletes in the section. Her time of 12.39 seconds beat the field by a whomping 0.30 seconds. Placing on the podium in elite invitationals like Stanford and Arcadia she has set herself apart as one of the favorites heading into the WCAL and CCS Championship races this May.
Just a freshman, Smallwood runs with the maturity and tenacity of a veteran athlete. Her personal best of 12.30 run earlier this year at the West Coast Relays ranks her #3 all-time for the Warriors behind Dahlys Marshall and Krystal Carter. While Smallwood has been superb in the 100 this year she has been outstanding in other events as well running 25.40 for 200 meters (#6 all-time for the Warriors) and was a member of the school record DMR team at the Arcadia Invitational.
