Would you believe that none the four teams that posted the fastest boys and girls relay times during the 2019 outdoor season won a CIF-State Track and Field Championship title?
Below are videos of the CA No. 1 relays from 2019. Under each clip is a recap of who won the State title and what happened to the team that posted the fastest time during the season.
CA No. 1 - 40.87 - Long Beach Poly (CIF-SS Divisional Finals, May 11)
CA No. 1 - 45.95 - Calabasas (Marmonte League Finals, April 26)
Scripps Ranch from San Diego won the State Meet title running 46.51, the No. 2 time in CA in 2019. Calabasas, which ran a team of Kennedy Waite, Kyla Robinson-Hubbard, Bella Witt and De'Anna Nowling, unfortunately, was not able to continue after the league meet when it was discovered a couple of key athletes had participated in more than four events over the course of the prelims and finals.
CA No. 1 - 3:13.86 - Long Beach Wilson (CIF-SS Masters, May 18)
CA No. 1 - 3:43.77 - Roosevelt (CIF-SS Divisional Final, May 11)
