Niki Iyer, grade 10, saved her best kick for the most important race of her young career, running a fast last lap in the 3200 to move from fourth into third place, a CIF state meet qualifying spot. Having finished fifth last year, she took a strong determination to win to the track Friday night, said coach Scott Chisam. Iyer led all runners through the first mile, 5:14, was passed with two laps to go, but flew by the No. 3 runner with about 200 meters left in the race. She will run Saturday night at the CIF State Track & Field Championships in Clovis.
Honors! Harker coach Scott Chisam was named the 2015 CCS Honor Coach for boys track and field, and both the boys team and girls team received recognition as CCS Scholastic Championship Teams. Coaches Erica Kenworthy and Zach Wohlford accepted the award for the Eagles.
