Byron Marshal in the 100 meters.
Mountain View - The weather was a brisk 50 degrees, usually not considered ideal “sprinting weather” by any means, but that mattered little to Byron Marshall who sizzled the 100 meters in a State leading 10.61. His time is a personal best and the second best wind legal mark in school history.  Marshall is undefeated in the 100 meters this season winning the K-Bell invitational last weekend.  Marshall also won the indoor 60 meters at the prestigious Simplot Games (Idaho) in February. 

Marshall also was a member of the winning 800 Sprint Medley Relay where he ran the 200 meter leg along with teammates Jarrod Lawson (100), Julian Tuyor (100) and Sean Davis (400) who set the school record in 1:36.21.

Tuyor also finished 7th in the 100 meters with a time of 11.08 earning recognition on the team's top 10 all-time performance list.

Theodore King continues to make his mark on the school record books.  With a toss of 48-11 King tops the list breaking the previous school record of 47-2 set in 2004 by Aaron Lambert.  Excited about getting the record King has bigger goals in mind, “I’m going to get further than that,” King said after his throw.  “I’m going over 50.”

King also improved over 10 feet in the discus with a throw of 130-7.

Jerrod Lawson at the Start of the SMR.
Sean Davis continued to run strong in the early season winning the Invitational 800 meters.  Running a tactical race he passed through the first lap in a sluggish 62 seconds but turned it on the last 400 winning a sprint to finish in 1:59.23.

The girls had a solid showing led by Senior Kristin Sato who continued to impress winning the long jump for the second straight week.  Her mark of 17-10 was good enough to win on the chilly day, she won the K-Bell Invitational the week prior.  Sato came back later in the day finishing 3rd in the Triple Jump with a personal best of 36-5.5.  Her mark surpasses her school record of 36-3 set at the CCS Finals last season but no wind reading keeps it from being an official school record. 

Shelby Smallwood continued to be on a tear of her own finishing 2nd in the 100 meters in a season best 12.22 (+3.3).  It is the second week in a row Smallwood, a sophomore who is one of the top underclassman in the state, has finished runner-up at a major invitational.

The throws saw some outstanding results for the second week in a row.  Winning the Frosh-Soph girls shot put, freshman Ronna Stone’s throw of 32-0 was just off of her personal best set a week ago.  Finishing 10th, Priscilla Shing threw 22-1. Kristin Uda finished 11th in the Discus with a throw of 81-6.

In the team standings the Men’s team finished 6th, the Women 8th.

Other Meet Results:
  • The Varsity Girls finished 4th in the Girls Distance Medley Relay.  Not entirely happy with their time on the cold day, their 13:07.77 betters their debut last year.  That team later went on to break the school record (12:28) just 3 weeks later.  Hopefully more of that to come!
  • Freshman Kirk Johnson ran his first race of the season finishing 17th in the 400 meters with a time of 54.09.
  • Eyobed Mesfun finished 10th in the 800 meters with a time of 2:16.31.
  • Yusuf Haddad ran a personal best in the 100 meters finishing 18th in the Frosh-Soph 100 meters in a time of 12.35.
