The Dublin High School Track and Field team continued to bolster its legacy of success after more strong performances and top finishes at the North Coast Section Meet of Champions (NCSMOC) it hosted last weekend (May 19-20).
Senior Alexander Franco edged out last season’s champion in the 400m by .02 seconds, coming in at 48.65 to claim 1st place. Franco also was part of the Boys 4x400m Relay Team with Joshua Arevalo, Sebastian Guinther, and Manyu Yara which also took 1st place by nearly one second with a time of 3:23.60. As a team, the Boys finished in 7th place overall for the entire North Coast Section.
On the Girls’ side, Senior Pole Vaulter Victoria Bradley reached the height of 11’7 to claim 2nd place and punch her ticket to next weekend’s CIF State Meet. Leila Champion was also a medalist in both the 100m and 200m to help the squad finish 12th overall in NCS.
In the Unified Division, Avi Taneja and Sebastian Zavala earned multiple medals to help lead the Gaels to a 2nd place finish.
Franco, Arevalo, Guinther, Yara, Bradley, Taneja, and Zavala will all advance to the CIF State Meet next weekend at Buchanan High School in Clovis. Other Dublin High student-athletes who qualified to go down for the State Meet include Seth Kwan, Garrett Esonomu, Anthony Pickens, Hayden Choi, and Elijah McDaniel. The CIF Meet will be the final event of the year in which Dublin High student-athletes will be participating.
The last sport that still had athletes competing last weekend was Badminton. Jasmine Yeung took 4th place in the CIF NorCal Tournament at Independence High School in San Jose on Saturday in Girls Singles, which was the highest finish for any Gael in school history.
