We had some outstanding performances in the varsity level.  Cierra Cuenca and Vanessa Estrada set personal records in the 800m.  Cierra also set a personal record in the 400m and Vanessa Estrada set a personal record in the 1600m as well.  Leala Marquez broke both school hurdle records and Natalie Cortez broke her own school record in the 1600m for the 3rd week in a row!  After posting a 5:30 last week she runs a 5:27.87 and then proceeds to run the 4x400m relay along with Vanessa Estrada, Cierra Cuenca, and Marina Ferdin to place 3rd and better their time by 10 seconds.  We hope to try and advance some girls to regionals next week.  We would like to thank everyone for their support yesterday, it definitely helped our girls.
