TKA had a great start to the track and field season at Bellarmine H.S on Saturday, Feb. 29. Here is a link to the results.
Highlights: Senior and team captain Kelaiah Moore led the team with two impressive performances in the sprints. She won the 200 meter race and placed second in the 100 meters. She ran 26.58 and 12.74 respectively and is now 2nd all time in the 200 meters and 3rd in the 100 meters on our school record board. Not far behind her was junior Molly Clarke in the 200 meters (3rd place). She finished in 27.60 which moved her up to #7 on the all-time board. Sophomore Aidan Oslob had a big PR in his first 1600 meters of the season and ran 4:42.79 (7th) and another PR in the 800 (6th) where he ran 2:07.79. Those performances placed him #8 and #9 on the all-time board in those events respectively. Joanne Yu tied for first place in the pole vault and vaulted 11 feet. Finally, Senior Lauren Mclane in her first attempt at high jump this year jumped 4 feet 8 inches which tied her for 2nd on the all-time school record board.
In summary, TKA had a great first meet and a plethora of personal bests. Next week the entire team of about 80 athletes will compete on Friday, March 6, at the famous Kezar Stadium in San Francisco at the Sunset Invitational.
