On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, Sequoia traveled to Carlmont for a meet against this long-term powerhouse of track and field. Our team competed very well and came away with convincing victories in the team competition in both the Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys divisions. Unfortunately, both our Frosh/Soph teams were defeated but all our younger athletes competed strongly and many achieved new personal records. The individuals who deserve special recognition include:
Ryan Reed won both the 100 and 200 remaining undefeated in our dual meet competitions in both these events.
Freshman Heather Benway, competing in her first meet at the varsity level, took second in both the varsity girls 100 and 200.
Sophomore Alonso Gonzales ran an outstanding 1600 and won the varsity event in a new personal record.
Thomas Burt won the FS boys 1600 in a new personal record and also won the 800 and ran a leg on the 4×400 team.
Eva Gillet won the varsity girls 1600 and the 800, setting a new personal record in the 800, and also ran a leg on the 4×400.
