Meet Recap:

Boys varsity: Stockdale 73 / Frontier 63

Girls varsity: Stockdale 76 / Frontier 60

The first dual meets of the season were met with a rather warm day in the mid 70s and sunny skies. The Frontier track is a rather nice track for being dirt and they use their auto timing system for the meet too. This system came in handy in some races because they were close. In the girl's 400, Alyson DeLaRossa won by a hundredth of a second over her Stockdale opponent.

Other school's have the system but do not use it for dual meets. Besides the timing system, the Frontier track has the distinction of being the only 440 meter track that I know of. This extra large oval makes all the track events unusual and in the distance races giving athletes splits is very difficult. One has to move up the track by 40 meters on every lap to be accurate. Of course it does make the 3200 seem shorten because it ends up only being seven and a quarter laps.

In the 3200, Stockdale's Cameron Miller (So) and Carolin Haney (Jr) lead wire to wire in the combined boys/girls race. Both squads sweep the event. Miller and Haney also won the 1600s earlier in the meet. In the 800, Frontier's Alyson DeLaRossa (Jr) won her second event of the meet with a quick last lap where she moved a way from Stockdale's Riddhi Patel (Fr) who also placed second in the 1600 and 3200.

The boys 800 was won by Stockdale's Stephen Burke (Jr) who ran around 2:03 to Frontier's Caleb Barger (Jr) who won the 400 earlier in the meet. His team mate Kassidy Ellis (So) won both hurdle events as well.
