On a warm and windy day, the Rio Hondo League’s two powerhouse schools grabbed 20 spots in the CIF Finals (Southern Section Division 3). San Marino also managed one, bringing the league total to 21. Monrovia had 11, evenly split between the men and the girls while South Pasadena had 9, seven of them women. Hands down, the most interesting event in the Finals will be the girls’ 4x100 relay where Monrovia will be seeded #3 and SoPas will be #5. The two most exciting individual events will be the girls’ 100 Hurdles and the girls’ High Jump. Sydney Mosley (Monrovia) is seeded #1 in the 100H and Claire Kieffer-Wright (SoPas) is seeded #1 in the HJ.
South Pasadena’s Jazmin Jackmon is the #2 seed in the girls’ Long Jump;
Monrovia’s 4x100 relay team is a #3 seed;
Octavius Spencer (Monrovia) is #4 in the men’s Long Jump;
Cravon Gillespie (Monrovia) is #4 in the 100 Meters;
