WCAL Dual: VC @ St. Francis

St. Francis, Mountain View - It has been a stellar year for the field events this season, perhaps none better than in the Girls Triple Jump.  This season four athletes have broken 30 feet, more than any other year, three of whom are the best ever in school history.  Kristin Sato, the school record holder and a CCS finalist last season leads the Warriors with a mark of 37-5.75.  She is followed by three athletes who are in their first year trying the event: Robriana Johnson, #2 all-time, hit a personal best 35-10.5 in the meet with St. Francis Wednesday, while freshman Lydia Sum, #3 all-time, hit her personal best as well with a mark of 34-10.75. Elaine Ma, another freshman is #7 all-time for the Warriors with a mark of 31-11.  Sato, Johnson and Sum have all hit marks amongst the CCS Top 20 Performances this season.

While these athletes have excelled in the Triple Jumps they have also had solid performances in other events as well. Kristin Sato leads the team, and the CCS, in the long jump with a jump of 18-5.25.  Johnson, Sum and Ma have also hit marks over 15 feet earning recognition on the team's all-time list.  Showing their all-around athletisim, Robinson and Ma has also high jumped 4-10 this year tying for #3 all-time.  Joining them on the team's Top 10 all-time list is freshman Amy Roat, who at 4-8 is tied for #6 all-time. 

It has also been a breakthrough year in the throws as well.  Theodore King's school record of 50-9 was the first in school history over 50 feet. He also has a throw of 130-7 in the discus, currently #4 all-time for the Warriors.  It has been a solid season in the throws for others as well, including Chris Graham (38-7.5 in the shot put) and Eddie Saoud who broke through in the discus with a throw of 109-9.  The girls have had outstanding marks as well.  Ronna Stone's throw of 32-6 is the top mark for the lady Warriors as Taylor Martinez (31-1) and Kristin Uda (30-2) have also thrown over the 30 foot mark this season.  Kristin Uda also leads in the discus with a personal best of 87-7.
