Granada Distance & Sprint Festival

3200m – The girls will be lead by Lauren Lum of Alameda who has already broken the 11-minute barrier this season.  She’ll be followed closely by eight girls from five other schools who have run under 12 minutes this season.  The boys’ race features fourteen boys under 10 minutes, headlined by Division 3 Cross Country All-Stater Greg Aufderheide of Livermore and Sean Laidlaw of Lick Wilmerding.  They’ll be leading a group of boys trying to run in the 9:20s.

800m – The girls’ race has at least three girls that will be trying to break the 2:20 mark including Veronica Valenton of Livermore, Cynthia Rosales of Piner, and Jordyn Gleaton of Kimball.  The boys’ race has a ton looking to break 2 minutes, and features three that have already gone under that mark.  Parker Wilkerson of Las Lomas, Nate Harris of Tamalpais, and sophomore sensation Matt Strangio of Jesuit have proven credentials to run in the 1:55 range.

1600m – The girls’ race is loaded with big potential for multiple sub-5 performances.  The field includes Jenna Miles and Isabella Chao of Campolindo, Colleen McCandless and Kalea Bartolotto of Granada, Lauren Lum of Alameda, Amanda Olla of San Ramon Valley, and Kelli Wilson of Monte Vista—all of whom have ran under 11 minutes in the 3200 this season, and are seeking fast times as they step down to the 4 lap distance.  The boys’ race should be a great opportunity to break both the 4:20 and 4:30 barriers.  John Bennett (4:18/8:57) of Granada headlines, followed by Spencer Berkins of Bishop O’Dowd, Ethan Ash of Head-Royce, and Edward Buckley of Campolindo.

400m – The girls’ race has several hunting for their first sub 60 of the season in Maddy Doane of Campolindo and Veronica Valenton of Livermore.  Several boys are hovering around 50 seconds, including Elijah Sheppard and Matthew Friedler of Monte Vista as well as Will Watkins of Tamalpais and Tomas Kersulis of Foothill.

100m – The girls have two under 13 seconds this season: Belle Aduahe of Foothill and Giovanna Duley of Granada.  There are several others looking to get into the 12-second range for the first time this season.  The boys have a very fast heat with all at or under 11.5, including Alameda’s 10.96 dasher Ramir Smith.

100m/110m Hurdles – The girls’ field features Dublin’s Amayia Brandon at 16.86, Livermore’s Abigail Harnish 17.06, and Granada’s Kaila Kheirolomoom 17.75.  The boys’ race will showcase a great dual between Dublin’s Donald Davis 15.31 and Kimball’s Andrew Washington 15.55.
