Track and Field
The Eagles posted 25 personal bests in the Firebird Relays at Fremont High School over spring break! The girls distance medley relay team not only won its event, but also set a new meet and school record. Junior Alex Dellar, sophomores Winnie Li and Nikki Iyer, and freshman Grace Koonmen won in style as Iyer made up a 140-meter gap on her final leg, posting a personal record of 5:01 for her mile run. Iyer later set a school record in the 800m with 2:20.64.
Koonmen also ran the No. 3 all-time mark for a Harker freshman in the 100m and 200m races. Freshman Anthony Contreras, meanwhile, improved on his No. 2 all-time Harker 200m race with a 24.01. Sophomore Davis Howard posted the No. 5 all-time mark for a Harker sophomore in the shot put and discus, while sophomore Davis Dunaway became the No. 2 all-time Harker sophomore in the 65m hurdles.
Junior Arthur Ye also had a strong day with a personal record of 33’ 6” in the shot put, ranking him among Harker’s top 10 all-time shot put efforts at No. 7. Freshman Ananya Krishnan’s personal record of 17’ 9” – the best-ever shot put effort by a female Harker freshman – moved her into eighth position on the top 10 list.
The Eagles held on for a tight 14-13 victory over Trinity Christian last week to bump their record up to .500 at 6-6 overall. Freshmen Nate Kelly and Dominic Cea led the way with three hits apiece, including Kelly’s four RBIs.
