Lady Warriors Poised To Make Run For WCAL Title

Mountain View, CA – The Warriors were back at it for Day 2 of the WCAL trials as fifteen girls advance to the finals.  It was a strong day of performances in all disciplines, perhaps most impressive in the hurdles as all Valley Christian athletes qualified for the final.  Lydia Sum is the top seed in the 100 hurdles as well as a top contender the 300 hurdles.  Also qualifying in both events is Nicole Shak and Rebekah Bruckner in the junior varsity division.  Caitlyn Rowland qualified as the top seed in the junior varsity division for 300 hurdles.

Shelby Smallwood continues to be clutch in the post season.  The two time WCAL Champion qualified for both the 100 and 200 meters for the fourth consecutive year.  She will be joined in the 100 meters by Taylor Johnson who also advances in the long jump.  Sydney Clark and Tiffani Johnson advance in the junior varsity 100 meters, both hitting personal best times.

Four athletes advance in the 800 meters: Ashley Lara won her heat to advance while Karen Mac had a stellar run qualifying with a personal best time of 2:30.50.  It was a personal best for Kiko Li in the Junior Varsity 800, running 2:40.98.  She will be joined by Nicole Favre who also qualified for the finals.

The field events have been strong all year for the Warriors and were again Wednesday.  Elena Bruckner qualified as the top seed in both the shot put and the discus, her throw in the shot put was just one inch short of the WCAL meet record.  Ronna Stone qualified comfortably in both events as well, punching over 40 feet in the shot put.  Also strong in the field events is Elaine Ma in the long jump and Sydney Clark in the junior varsity triple jump.

In addition to the qualifiers there were many personal bests on the day.  Allison Cong dipped under her personal best in the 100 running 13.90.  Katrina Le and Trisha Hui had two personal bests on the day, while Hannah Lee matched her lifetime best in the 100 hurdles.
