The Sequoia Track and Field Team continued their dream season on Saturday, May 12th at the PAL Varsity finals. Our girls team had a very strong showing finishing 6th out of the 17 schools competing at the meet. And our boys team won the league meet championships by a single point over Menlo Atherton, remaining undefeated over the entire season. The overall team lead was traded back and forth several times during the meet and the final standings were not determined until the last event of the day – the 4×400 relay. This is the first time that Sequoia boys have won both the dual meet championship and the league meet championship in the same season.
