Jesuit could be on track for state title run

Without googling to find the answer, what year did a track and field team from Northern California win the state team title?
2009? No
2008? No
2007? No
2006? No
2005? No
2004? Ding, ding, ding.  And the winner was...James Logan.

For the girls it is more recent and that would be 2007 and Mount Pleasant.

Check out the following article about a team from Northern California that could challenge for the state title this year:

Finally, one of my all time favorite trivia questions.  What girl won the state meet by herself scoring 38 points at the state meet?  Name the girl, school, events and year.

Wendy Brown did it in the '80's. She won the LJ, the TJ, the HJ, and was 2nd in the 100 hurdles.

Correct you are Peter. 1984.

I was a freshman at the time and in our league (Peninsula Athletic League) we had 3 future Olympians...Wendy Brown, Leslie Maxie and Matt Giusto and one future state champion in the pole vault...Steve Toney.
