CIF-Southern Section Finals
May 19, 2018 @ El Camino College Stadium

El Camino College played host to the CIF-SS division finals and, like Cerritos in many years, swirling wind created some challenges (especially in the sprints and field events) as the day went on. A number of Rio Hondo’s D3 competitors had personal bests, and two athletes qualified to compete in the CIF-ss Masters competition (the next step in the road to the CIF state meet).  Starting with the girls:  Christina Taylor of South Pasadena placed 9th in the 400M (60.05); Gianna Beasley of South Pas, Ellaney Matarese of La Canada, and Olivia Ruiz of San Marino went 2, 3, 4 in the 800M with times of 2:16.46, 2:16.51, and 2:17.5, respectively (Matarese and Ruiz running personal bests); earlier in the meet Matarese also had a PR in the 1600M, running 5:08.65 to place 5th; La Canada’s Sarah Auther had a PR in the 3200M, placing 3rd with a time of 10:59.52; South Pas’ Ashley Hugasian took 8th in the 300M hurdles (48.56); La Canada’s Claire Murray unfortunately stumbled in the blocks before the 100M hurdles and was DQ’d for a false start.  In the 4x100M relay, South Pas team of Beasley, Hugasian, Taylor and Whitman took 7th (49.26) and Monrovia’s Jumal, Lang, Easley, and Allen took 9th in 49.60.  South Pas’ 4x400 team of Segal, Beasley, Hugasian and Taylor took 5th in 3:59.06.
