CIF California State Meet 1985 Boys 3200


Pretty cool find for those of you that remember the runners involved in this race.  The winner here was Roman Gomez of Belmont HS who turned the 3200/1600 double at the state meet for the second year in a row in 1985.  The 3200 is listed first as the track schedule at the time had the 3200 (about middle of the meet) first followed by the 1600 which preceded the final event, the 1600m. relay.  In 2nd place was Castro Valley runner Calvin Gaziano who was quite the legend in the early 80s.  His course record for the Canyon Middle School course (used at the Castro Valley Invitational) is ridiculous and I don't see it being broken for a very long time.  3rd placer, Eric Mastalir of Jesuit HS, would return the following track and field season to win this race.  Twin brother Mark won the 1600m.
