Zoom: Mark Gardner talks Arcadia, Mt. SAC Apr 12, 2023

The amazing Mark Gardner is a familiar voice on the mic at track and field and cross country meets across Southern California. He also serves as the Southern Section editor for MileSplitCA when not involved with his day job as a teacher at Corona High. Gardner, a former coach, is now more involved than ever in the preparations for the iconic Mt. SAC Relays coming up this weekend. And he was also on the mic for many of the distance events during the day on Saturday at Arcadia. We forced a window between his many raindrops to reflect on the awesomeness that was Arcadia, and prep for this weekend at Mt. SAC. RUN OF SHOWIntro Mark Gardner:28 - Co-meet director at Mt SAC1:03 - Arcadia never ceases to amaze1:30 - Fast times at Arcadia High2:05 - Out of state folks came and delivered2:30 - Walk away so positive about the sport3:00 - Granada Hills Charter - Dijon Stanley (OMG!) is so effortless3:40 - More GHC: Jordan Coleman.
