This is the second time Southlands Christian has had a track team and the first time they’ve been an official CIF Qualified Team and in a league. The Eagles are in the Miramonte League with Garey, Pomona, Ganesha, La Puente, and Basset. It’s a public school league so the competition is higher in some areas.
Yesterday, March 15, the Eagles had their first meet against host school Ganesha and Basset. The Eagles did well in some events after only having two weeks of practice. Alejandra Cedillo finished 4th in the 400 m, Araceli Cedillo finished 4th in the 800 m, Bryson Smith finished 4th in the 200 m & 100 m, Paloma finished in 3rd place for the long jump, and Nathan Vallejo finished 3rd place in the 1600 m and 1st place in the 3200 m.
Congratulations to the Southlands Christian Track Team on a great start to the season.
Here is the schedule for the rest of the regular season. League Finals and CIF Finals TBD.
